Magnificent Mile Tour

The Magnificent Mile is the Shopping Center of Chicago and the 2nd largest shopping district in the United States behind only New York City’s 5th Avenue. And while it’s hard to escape a visit to the Mag Mile without spending a dime, there is much more than shopping here. Come see all this vibrant part of town has to offer on our Magnificent Mile Tour.

Chicago’s Magnificent Mile is home to an amazing history – from Chicago’s humble beginnings as a swamp, to buildings still standing after surviving the Great Chicago Fire of 1871 & some of Chicago’s most significant architectural feats such as the John Hancock Center and residential towers completed by the famed architect Mies van der Rohe along the shores of Lake Michigan.

See a side of the Mag Mile you have never before on our Magnificent Mile Tour today!
