Michigan Avenue, Chicago: 81 reviews and 128 photos
Walking along Michigan Avenue you can see Water Tower Plaza - a huge shopping mall that has a Disney store and other stores.
"Filenes Bargain Basement" is supposed to be discount name-brands.
You will see the Old Water Tower that is one of only two buildings to have survived the great Chicago Fire.
There is a nice bookstore on the corner called "Border's" after the old Water Tower. You must see F.A.O. Schwartz toystore in the next block after 'Border's' - even if you don't want to buy toys!
Visiting Schwartz toy store you can play with the toys, and they have an annoying song they play all the time, "Welcome to my world!" This toy store is 3 or 4 storeys.
John Hancock Building is right across the street, if you'd like to go up to the observation platform - admission is $7, and it's open until midnight.
