Visited Thursday after the rain cleared. The skies cleared just in time. No long wait because of the poor visibility earlier on. If you are afraid of height you will not step into the glass enclosure unless you look straight.

Very nice view of Chicago. The special attraction is the glass balcony, which we liked a lot. Nothing else is special.

As much as I enjoy visiting the observation deck at the Hancock, the view from the Skydeck is still the best in the city. Additionally the pre-deck exhibit is very informative and entertaining. I did endure the line for a chance to stand in The...More

The views are worth the visit, we went as a family of 4 ( 2 children ) and honestly, the wait time kinda ruined the experience. Some staff are rude, squeezes you in the elevator, screams after you so you move faster. Considering the amount...More

We visited Chicago for the 4th of July weekend and had a great time. One of the "must-do" visits was the Willis Tower and it didn't disappoint. I have a 12 yr old boy and a 9 yr old girl and they had a blast...More

We only had a day to explore Chicago, and this was worth taking the time to visit. Get there early in the morning, otherwise there is a long wait. Granted we were there on a Sunday, I have no idea what it would be like...More

Downtown / The Loop
Often visitors' first stop in Chicago, The Loop is a
good starting point to sample the city's energy and
flavor. This central business district boasts
Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier
shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep
your camera busy for hours. You won’t find too many
photo galleries of downtown Chicago without a shot of
Millennium Park and Cloud Gate (“The Bean”), one of
