Every trip to Chicago finds us in a Garrett's Popcorn Shop. The favorite is the cheese and Carmel corn mix. One for us to munch and one to take to family in Detroit. We are never disappointed.

The corn is a tad pricey, but it is amazing. Strongly recommend the mix and some napkins. The sweet of the caramel and the salty cheese is wow.

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. Some of the city’s most iconic buildings like the Wrigley Building, John Hancock Center and other architectural marvels define the magnificence of this neighborhood.
