Chicago's gallery district in the River North neighborhood is just a few blocks from Michigan Avenue and if you're shopping for original art, this is your bliss among the former warehouses turned exhibition spaces. If the creme de la creme of furniture and home decor is calling, you're a few blocks from the Merchandise Mart's furniture showrooms. The first week of December, it's the One of a Kind Show and Sale at The Mart when hundreds of artists and and designers offer truly unique goods. River North is home to home design showrooms, bespoke suit and tux shops as well as Glamour Closet where brides-to-be can choose among designer wedding gowns at up to 75% off retail. Treat yourself at the chocolate shop/café, L.A. Burdick, and P.O.S.H. has been enchanting locals and visitors for years with its flea market finds, hotel silver and French kitchen accessories.
- Best Shopping: "The Merchandise Mart is not only a landmark building, but it's also a great place to shop for higher-end furniture in its many showrooms."
- Recommended as Best Shopping Because: River North is awash in art galleries, fine furnishings, new bars and restaurants.
