It is a tradition for us to visit Water Tower Place whenever we're in Chicago. The American Girl Store is a favorite of my granddaughters and all the grandkids love the Lego Store. For this visit we happened upon an exhibit of Dr. Seuss paintings....More

The mall is attractive and busy and full of everything! Clean, well kept, bathrooms were even nice. I would go back again just to walk around and take in the sights.

This was right across from our hotel. 7 floors of shopping with a Garrett’s popcorn on the top floor without a line! Worth it just for that. Food court on lower level had decent quick options.

Magnificent Mile
Over 400 stores pack the concrete along Michigan
Avenue, the eight-block stretch known as Magnificent
Mile. This area between Oak Avenue and the Chicago
River is more a shopping paradise than a full-out
neighborhood. For prime upscale shopping, this is the
place to go. It’s busy, energetic, and packed with
shoppers. You'll also find hundreds of restaurants and
dozens of hotels, all on the mid- to high-end scale.

Harry Caray's is a vintage baseball, semi-hokey mini museum with pretty good food for this tourist trap within what was once a destination mall.
