    Perfect shopping fix combined with a stroll through the seasonal meticulously maintained flora & fauna lining Michigan Ave, enhanced by changing public art and street performers. A great day out.

    If you're a tourist: DO NOT stop abrupt in front of the stores to take photos of the building. People are actually trying to shop.

    Some of the best shopping around. Start at Rush, walk down Oak then on to Michigan Ave for a mix of high end boutiques, department stores and trendy lower end shops.

    Shoppers love it for the stores; tourists, because it is beautiful, convenient, clean, and safe. I love it as an architecture walk. Start south of the river on East Wacker and enter via the bridge.

    Stop on the corner of Michigan & Ontario in front of Grand Lux Cafe to watch the street performers, which are usually dancers/singers spray painted head to toe in gold or silver. Don't forget to tip!

    Wear sneakers when you walk up and down Michigan avenue. There's lots to see and you want to make sure you see it all before your feet get tired.

    When crossing the street, please mind the light. Pedestrians need to pay attention to the DON'T WALK sign so they don't create congestion and traffic delays.
