Best Things to Do
There's so much to discover when it comes to Chicago's shopping scene. If you're looking to unearth independent labels, visit the Wicker Park and Bucktown neighborhoods. Many boutiques are concentrated at the intersection of Milwaukee, North and Damen Avenues. On the other hand, if vintage finds are your thing, pop into vintage district stores along Chicago Avenue or Lincoln Avenue. For salvaged and vintage furnishings, though, the Grand Avenue Design District is a best bet. And of course, there's no overlooking the Magnificent Mile.
