Shopping in Chicago 

Chicago is a mecca for shoppers and offers everything from small souvenir shops and outlet stores to world-class malls and luxury art galleries. Whether you’re shopping for a souvenir, gifts for loved ones, or just want to browse, the shopping destinations mentioned below are great places to start.

The Magnificent Mile

Synonymous with Chicago shopping, this major thoroughfare leads you from small independent boutiques and hidden gems to three large multi-storey shopping malls and luxury boutiques, all within close distance of each other. You can spend an entire afternoon and evening shopping around the Magnificent Mile, so give yourself enough time to see it all.

Lincoln Square shops

If you prefer charming cobblestone street shopping, Lincoln Square is just the place. Browse through a number of independent boutiques, from modern artisan stores to retro toy stores and furniture emporiums, to see if anything catches your eye. Then, grab a bite at one of the many eateries nearby.

Jewelers Row

Looking to splurge on diamond earrings, or need to buy a gift for someone special in your life? Or, maybe you want to pop the big question and are looking for the perfect stone. Whatever the reason, head down to the Chicago Loop and browse through an enclave of jewelry stores selling anything from custom-made rings, bracelets, and pendants to loose diamonds and watches.
