The Chicago Cultural Mile is Michigan Avenue south of the river to Roosevelt and eastward to Lake Michigan. Sibling to the Magnificent Mile, the Cultural Mile is distinguished by its blend of world-renowned institutions, extraordinary parks, diverse architecture, and dramatic fountains and sculpture. Its stretch of landmark-designated buildings is considered the face of Chicago and serves as a gateway to one of the richest cultural and educational districts in the country.
There is much to explore – from The Art Institute of Chicago to The Chicago Symphony Orchestra to the Field Museum to Millennium and Grant Parks. You’ll find casual and fine dining, a wide range of hotels and unique touring opportunities including the Chicago Architecture Foundation’s River Cruise and segway tours of Millennium Park.
Just as significant as its tourist attractions, the Chicago Cultural Mile hosts a vibrant business community. It is the headquarters for hundreds of companies and an ideal location for many of Chicago’s business and social clubs, including: The Chicago Club, The Executives’ Club, The University Club and The Cliff Dwellers Club.
