Nothing unique about this mall. Most of these places can be found at any mall. They have Garrett's Popcorn on the 7th floor, which is the best popcorn ever!

Lots of shops in this nice 7 level building. There's a great souvenir shop on the 7th level. And the Garret's popcorn shop rarely has a line.

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.
