We're big Ghirardelli fans and never miss a chance to visit one if we're in town. This one lived right up to expectations and despite the single digit temps, was still rather busy!

Large ice cream shop (with several locations Downtown) that also has a large retail shop where you can buy Ghirardelli squares and gifts. The ice cream is fantastic - I would recommend the Mint Quake Shake. YUMMY. We will definitely return!

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.
