Chicago is one of the few places in the United States where you can pull into a Chicago parking garage and spend an entire day shopping in some of the finest shops and boutiques in the world. It isn’t just the products being sold here that have become well-known, but the service and even the streets they are found on. They are so close together, you can stop in one of the convenient downtown Chicago parking lots, go from place to place, drop off your purchases, and shop some more. Here are some streets you definitely want to check out during your visit.
Perhaps the most famous area a Chicago parking garage gives you access to is known as the ‘Magnificent Mile’. This area is Michigan Ave. from the Chicago River, ending at Oak Street. This stretch of road has some of the most famous luxury stores in the United States, and when you enter these places, you can easily see why. If department stores and accessories for your home are your favorite items, look up places like Bloomingdales and the Pottery Barn. For clothing and accessories for you, the Mile is home to Ralph Lauren and Tiffany’s. In addition to these big names, Michigan Ave. has a wealth of high-end boutiques and shops that are sure to have something for everyone including complexes such as 900 North Michigan Shops and Water Tower Place.
Also close to downtown Chicago parking are the shops and an interesting mix of stores and restaurants on Milwaukee Ave. Unique dollar and resale clothing stores give visitors the opportunity to discover interesting and hard to find items at a great price. They don’t sell the low end products you might expect either. Specialty skate shops, motorcycle stores, and other sport specialty stores cater to those with elite tastes in almost any topic.
Chicago parking garage locations downtown give you access to the cafes speckled along Milwaukee Ave. They are a great place to relax, look over your purchases, and enjoy quiet conversation. They range from quirky cafe-gift shops, to coffee house-art gallery, and hard rock, hip-hop inspired local restaurants. If you would like a little pampering along the way, their salons are some of the best in the city by far.
