We love that there are so many great shops within walking distance to The Peninsula Chicago, a Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel. Stroll up and down Michigan Avenue for designer goodies from Burberry and Tiffany. If you are pressed for time or just prefer more of a one-stop shop to satisfy your fix, pop into Nordstrom for Louis Vuitton, Kate Spade, fabulous accessories and some of the cutest designer baby and kids' clothing around. State Street boasts Macy’s, which is housed in the elaborate and ornate former Marshall Fields building.
If it rains, you can get all the shopping done under one roof at Water Tower Place. Inside you'll find Abercrombie & Fitch, Lacoste, Banana Republic, a new Lego store (say howdy to a life-sized Woody from Toy Story who guards the entryway) and the ever-popular American Girl store. Chicago has great shopping and all within close proximity to The Peninsula Chicago.
The Magnificent Mile and surrounding area hold a vast array of boutiques and retailers, including Ralph Lauren, Saks Fifth Avenue, Tiffany’s and Macy’s. You have found Chicago’s shopping Mecca.
