The Chicago Skyline is spectacular - I loved the different views and angles from the lake and the River at different times, but the evening views are breathtaking!

designed by the great architect John Root The building is a delight to view The exterior which is void of classical ornamentation sits with dignity and a wonderful treatment of its mass.
Tour ($7) gets you access to private floors which provide great views of the lobby treatments, plus added insights into what elements Wright added to the original treatments, and what he changed.

I've enjoyed especially good views of the Wrigley Building from the Chicago River on a Chicago Architecture Tour and learned much about its architectural and historical importance in the process.
But viewed it from a Chicago River cruise, the 32nd floor of the Intercontinental, from the Michigan Avenue Bridge, the RIverwalk...no matter how you view it, it is a lovely piece of Chicago architecture.

It marks the start of the Magnificent Mile on North Michigan and offers fabulous views of the Chicago River, which it spans, and many skyscrapers, including the famous Wrigley and Tribune buildings.
The bridge over the Chicago River enables viewers to see a full 360-degree view of the stunning skyline and Lake Michigan shore (Trump Tower is right in your face, so be prepared).
