Water Tower Place might have the most expensive parking lot in the city, not much has changed in 30 years(except the water fall), and it's slowly becoming the teen hangout spot of Michigan Ave. There are very few deals in this high end mall; it's...More

It is the atrium-style shopping mall that brought me into this 859-foot-high skyscraper, across the street from the historic water tower. I wanted to see what kind of stores it offers and how this mall compares to the other two on the Magnificent Mile. The...More

Nice place to visit, not a whole lot there, but neat that it survived the fire. There was a Cards-Against-Humanity exhibit there that was interesting. I've been to Chicago countless times, but i've never actually been in this until this trip. Worth the visit...and it's...More

Lots of interesting shops, but only exciting to real shoppers! I preferred to focus on the historic water tower and pumping station itself, which is across the street.

This review isn't for the mall. The mall is nice, but it's just like other malls. The review is for The two buildings that survived the fire; they are beautiful on the outside and inside. It's just amazing how they are still so beautifully maintained....More

I'm not a native Chicagoan; however, Water Tower Place feels like a location for tourists as opposed to those who live in the area. It has a mix of mall standards -- Macy's, Sephora, Red Mango -- semi-unique locations -- American Girl and Lego --...More

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.
