Chicago is such a beautiful city but what's more beautiful than seeing it from the top! The only disadvantage may be the long wait but if you're a tourist try to make it Mid-day, we didn't have to wait at all when we went on Tuesday around 2 pm!

Very nice view, but very expensive tickets and never ending queues. But at the end, beautiful fotos are what matters...

Go early!!! We went in morning and hardly a line. The Skydeck line is a bit unorganized but be patient and see the cool view from deck. Make sure it is a clear day for great pictures.

Very cool place to go if you want an amazing view. Please try step out into the glad floor, it is a little scary at first, but very much worth it.

The ledge is fun if you have the nerve to step out. However other visitors up there can be rude. It may be of benefit for sky deck to have staff present and have some semblance of "taking turns". You almost have to get rude to get a turn to stand in the boxes!

A majestic place with a wonderful of the city. The price is bit high, but if you buy the visitors pack comes a lot cheaper. It is also a it further from the loop than other attractions.

Fantastic views of Chicago from the Willis Tower, one of the highlights of our holiday. The queue was long but well worth the wait. We even went back at night for another visit.

Very much like the 360 Chicago except that the ledge was a neat addition. This place provides a great opportunity to get some nice photos of Chicago but again it was a quick in and out. Also if you don't like heights you may not appreciate this

I was expecting to wait an hour or two & was prepared to buy a fast pass We walked right through security, bought our regular tickets, bypassed the film, hopped on the first elevator & there we were on the 103 floor in less than 10 mins! The views were amazing...unbelievable! We waited 10-15 mins to walk onto the sky... More

Staying in Downtown / The Loop

Neighborhood Profile
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 the most iconic landmarks in the city. A stunning skyline coupled with cultural attractions like the Art Institute of Chicago present a Downtown where work and play peacefully coexist.
