  • The best place to start Shopping (Mid-ranged) in Chicago, if you are a tourist. This is pretty much a mall with multiple clothing stores and several other items. The building has a Macy's that spans for 12 floors. you've got a garrets popcorn inside and a few other confectionary shops as well. Good place to go with your family. Kids will love the Lego store right on the 1st floor.
  • Love this mall and all of their unique stores!! When we are downtown, it's a must to take my daughter into the American Girl doll store. She loves to just look around and play with all of the displays. I am always so excited to hear when they open new stores. It was thrilling to see the ice cream store, Wonder Roll and the new cookie dough store. Both excellent additions that taste amazing!!
  • We love wandering this mall. There are so many cool stores, and about anything you'd want to eat. We start at the top and work our way down. We especially like the stores that we don't have at home like Free People, and Lego Store...something for everyone.
  • It’s an experience, but really? The mall itself is nothing too out of the ordinary. I would think it would have a lot more stores and specialty store than it actually does. It wasn’t worth the walk from Union Station lol. But thankfully there were plenty of shops along the way to make the walk worthwhile. Something to see and do, but your local mall has pretty much the same to offer without the outrageous city taxes applied.
  • We spent most of our time in The American Girl store, which my 4 yr old loved. But the place definitely lacked parking! It is nice but really busy and cost $30 and 20 minutes to find parking.
