The Magnificent Mile is Chicago's premier shopping and tourism center. With stores rivaling Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills and Fifth Avenue in New York City, it is the destination for world shoppers. It's a place where if you are from out-of-town, you go for the premium stores, the highly-acclaimed restaurants and the first-class hotels that provide the full impact and ambiance of Chicago, a world-class city. Only problem is there has been an increase in the number of small gangs roaming around looking for the right prey.
