If you are looking at apartments for rent in Chicago in the heart of downtown, you may want to look near the area that has been termed "The Magnificent Mile." Located on North Michigan Avenue, this popular spot has some of the best shopping in the city, and plenty of other things to do as well. The Magnificent Mile has over 460 stores and boutiques and more than 200 restaurants. Shops such as Louis Vuitton, Cartier and Sephora dot the landscape, making it a destination in its own right. People from all over the world make this a stop on their tour of Chicago.
As you may expect, apartments here don’t come cheap, but the location can’t be beat. The proximity to all that the "Mag Mile" has to offer, along with being right next to Lake Michigan is the reward for paying higher prices. Boat cruises and world-famous architecture are only steps from the rentals in this part of the city, and theatre and museums are plentiful here as well. North Michigan Avenue is truly one of the more posh places you can rent in downtown Chicago.
