My wife has to stop at a Garrett Popcorn everytime we come to Chicago. The popcorn is really good. The lines can frequently be very long. They do not ship from their stores, so plan on that if you're traveling. The downtown shop has a...More

Free samples before you buy and fresh corn make the wait in line worth it. Best popcorn combinations we have had. Locations throughout the city. Just a bit bulky to bring home on the plane.

Amazing gourmet popcorn, we had the caramel one and it was absolutely amazing! The portions are huge, even the small bag is decent for 2 people! I would highly recommend, slightly expensive but worth it!

Don't be put off if there is a line at Garrett's. The line goes very quickly and it's definitely worth it! We never leave Chicago without it. And - it freezes very well!

We visited on a cold Saturday in April. The line was well organized and served us quickly. They offered free samples of the Garrett mix to try. I was able to order and check out within 5 to 10 minutes. The popcorn was tasty, but...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.

The earlier, the better. However, there is usually a line out the door. Don't fret, it moves pretty fast. It is worth the wait!
