My Own Walk tour in Chicago

This was my second attempt to do a walk tour in Magnificent Mile right after attending the Social Media Strategies Summit last April. The weather is unpredictable (rain shower in the morning and sunny all afternoon), so I managed to walk from the venue (Embassy Suites) to Magnificent Mile.

Magnificent Mile is a perfect venue for shopping, dining and sight seeing in downtown area. You will see different brands like Nieman Marcus, Saks, Nordstrom, Burberry, etc. There were a lot of establishments on the entire stretch of Magnificent Mile
with an approximate distance of 0.75 miles.

Chicago's Father Time Clock at The Jewelers' Building
The Jewelers' Building is a 40-story historic landmark facing the Chicago river.

Actually, this clock looks familiar! As seen in The Transformers Dark Moon.

There are still a lot of places and historical landmarks to visit. I should have make my own itinerary in the future.
