Its stunning eight-level atrium features more than 100 of your favorite stores and restaurants plus a mix of distinctive specialty shops and boutiques. It offers a unique, high-energy urban shopping experience you simply won't find anywhere else in the city. In short, Water Tower Place is the place to shop.

Okay, so it's a Chicago institution and there are definitely stores that are much more upscale than at my local mall...but it's still just. a. mall. Crowds, escalators, stores...the usual. We were there on a Saturday afternoon, just browsing. We did all 7 (or however many) floors, because we felt like we ought to, since we were there. We did stop in the food court and had some pizza, which was really quite good. If our local mall food court had food that good, I'd go shopping more often!

Overall, if you're in Chicago to shop, you probably should at least step into Water Tower Place. The thing to keep in mind is that quite a few of the stores found in Water Tower are also found on Michigan Ave and/or State St.

The stores are endless and amazing. Eating in the food court is an experience in itself.

Fun place to check out the latest Legos, to taste unique teas, see the newest styles, or eat very reasonably priced foods. Great place to take the whole family on a unique and entertaining shopping trip.
