It is home to 460 stores and nearly 300 restaurants, and is bustling with consumers and pleasure-seekers year-round. Prestigious boutiques such as Cartier, Hermès, and Tiffany & Co., are among the high-end stores found along this fashionable shopping strip. The Magnificent Mile is also the go-to for classic department stores such as Bloomingdale's, Saks Fifth Avenue, Neiman Marcus and Macy’s.
