    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This stretch of road is packed with things to see and do. It's also one of the most exclusive streets in America. There's great shopping to be found including Tiffany's and FAO Schwarz.

    Surely no one would want to visit Chicago without strolling along Michigan Av., visiting Water Tower place, checking out the shopping, just taking in the city!

    This big building pictured here is the "One Chicago Place" shopping mall on Michigan Avenue. It's very picturesque inside, and the top floor is a food court with great views over the streets below.
