Take a look at Chicago from the top of Skydeck Chicago - Willis Tower, the second tallest building in the country. Still called "Sears Tower" by most locals, the 108-story building looms over the city with a height of 442 m (1,451 ft). One of the world's tallest freestanding structures, the skyscraper features an observation deck on the 103rd floor. The popular skydeck is 412 m (1,353 ft) high, offering unobstructed views of Chicago and its sprawling suburbs. On clear days, the vista stretches far over the Illinois plains and across Lake Michigan, all the way to Indiana, Wisconsin, and Michigan. For a dizzying look from a glass-floored ledge jutting out into the air, get in line for the high-speed elevator to the top.

Skydeck Chicago - Willis Tower Reviews
평일 저녁에 입장했습니다. 전망대까지는 바로 들어갔는데, 사진 부스에서 줄을 30분 정도 섰습니다. 시간을 넉넉하게 잡고 일정을 짜세요. more »In the evening on weekdays. The Observatory came right away, until the line in 30 minutes for the photo booth. Time frame to hold the schedule for good measure.
Está el observatorio 360 a favor que tiene donde tomar café; em skydesck es un poco más alto, tiene a mi criterio mejor vista, y el cubo es mejor para tomar una buena fotografía Muy recomendado more »Is the Observatory 360 in favor having where coffee; em skydesck is a little higher, has in my opinion better view, and cube is best to take a good photograph highly recommended
The views were very nice. Only thing that I did not care for was the complete maze we had to go through to get to the elevators and then when we were finished with our time on the sky deck. They could... more »
Awesome way to kick off a family trip to Chicago! The Skydeck 360 was perfect for our family, even with 5 young kids. We had the city pass and had direct access to the elevators and got right to the top (from the time we walked in the building it was under 10 minutes to the Skydeck! - yes!!) Also, we ended up being able to take in the most amazing sunset views, and if you can plan around this time of day I would highly recommend it; we visited on a Thursday night before one of the busiest weekends in Chicago and still managed to avoid large crowds and had a very enjoyable time. Finally if you are debating between Willis tower and the Skydeck I would strongly recommend the Skydeck 360 (smoother, simpler and still amazing views).
Simply incredible. The views are magnificent. Went after 5 on a weekday and didn't have any wait to get to the top, the only wait was for "The Ledge" (worth the wait if you want the best photo op). I would recommend taking the time to check out this tourist spot. PS. The elevator ride was not bad at all. Ears popped a little but considering it was about a minute to get to the top the ride was very smooth.
The best adventure for all family. Taking photos and look at over all Chicago. The only thing is about waiting but with express pass it’s fine except if you want to spend more than 3 hours in this place. The glass deck to take pictures are so nice. If you’re old or have kids to forget the stroller and wheelchair. The staff are friendly and helpful and I noticed that they employee disabled people which is great.
Wow. This place was truly an experience to remember. The sky deck staff were very friendly and everything was so smooth. Great security. Of course there are long lines, but they are honestly worth the wait. I loved seeing tourists from all around the world. I also got some amaizing pictures.
I think this is a must-see site for any tourist (or local) to Chicago. The view is breathtaking and makes for great pics. The elevator ride up was a neat little trip — I liked how they got you engaged with the infographics of where you were in comparison to the height of other famous architectural achievements. Once you reach the top, you will be treated to a pretty incredible 360 view of beautiful Chicago. There are FOUR overlooks from the top. This was surprising to me as I was only anticipating there to be one. The lines moved quickly and was a pretty neat experience with great photo ops! There’s also a large shop for tourist with all kinds of unique Chicago souvenirs at reasonable prices.
