Very nice view. Great for pictures over looking Magnificent Mile! Sometimes they have a saxophone player playing music in the background. You can also catch a ride on the water taxi! Very nice panoramic views.

The Michigan Avenue Bridge is an experience in itself. Just walking over the bridge while exploring downtown Chicago and Michigan Avenue is awesome. If you are on Michigan Avenue, make the venture to the bridge and you will not be sorry.

This is an average bridge surrounded by amazing architecture. It's a bridge that you must cross to get to the Magnificent Mile and other famous Chicago landmarks. It shakes a lot when walking because there's lots of cars going over it. It has a nice...More

Very pretty bridge and architecture. Super heavy traffic and lots of honking, but it is the city after all. Panhandlers on all sides of the bridge which why it gets a 4.

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.

There are plenty of mass transit ways to get there as well as an Uber. Also plenty to do shopping experience wise and dining.

I'd use public transportation to get downtown instead of trying to drive and park downtown. And there is too much traffic to really see anything while you're driving.
