Chicago is considered as "The windy city " of US ... some also call it as "Mafia city" and for some others it is"City of President Obama" .... for me it is the city where the great Indian Swami Vivekananda gave his famous speech and also it is the city where our daughter successfully completed her masters in engineering !...

We rode the Tilt while up on the Observatory. It really wasn't that bad, although you have to have some muscle strength in your arms to hold yourself out from smashing into the glass. It is not as scary as the Willis Tower "box" and you never feel like you are in danger. My kids, 13 and 9, loved it.

Very neat! The Tilt was really cool. Heads up - it's an extra $5. The views are just amazing. Must go!

You enter in the basement of the John Hancock building and go up 94 stories. The view you see when you exit the elevator is spectacular as you are facing the Lake with the sail/power boats below. I enjoyed seeing the people doing the 45 degree lean out over the building. There are screens you can touch to tell what... More

The John Hancock building was one of the highlights of our trip to Chicago. The views are much more impressive and the lines nothing in comparison to the Willis Tower. You cannot find a better view of Lake Michigan. Since everyone is busy visiting the Willis Tower, there are no crowds here, so you can leisurely enjoy walking around and... More

I entered the building and asked for directions to the John Hancock Observatory entrance and was informed “It is now called 360 Mam.” I was given directions and went to the desk, up, and upon entering the observatory floor I found this surprisingly open and spacious. It was carpeted which I also found unusual but this gave it a nice... More

I didn't think this was going to be all that cool but my 13 year old said it was awesome! It wasn't terribly expensive nor were the lines bad.

I visited the observatory on a summer weekday in the afternoon, waiting in a line for about 5 minutes and waited a few minutes for the photo shoot which I think it was compulsory for everyone. I could see the whole city up there especially the Lake Michigan. The Lake together with the high rise buildings really made great pictures... More

I’m glad we managed to go up both the Hancock and Willis towers because choosing between the two would be very difficult. The Hancock tower offers better views of the Lake and the North shore and of course the iconic Willis (Sears) tower. Total visit time about an hour and if there is a huge queue when you get there...
