This is THE shopping experience! With more than 125 shops and restaurants, one door after another, that mile in Chicago won't seem so magnificent after wandering this half-mile long Main Street! There is just as much variety, quality and special activities and sales but with far less time spent walking and searching.
From candy and ice cream shops to spas, wine tasting and amazing dining options, this experience is downright surreal because it all happens along an 1800s street with original buildings and no bland or routine 'brand' shops. These shops are as diverse as the architecture and sights that can be seen while enjoying this easy walking environment.
Visitors to the Helluva Half Mile get the amazing experience but still have energy left at the end of the day to enjoy the unique restaurants and nightlife that, yep, can also be found mingled amongst the shops.
