Great View

Try to be there at sunset. There are great views of downtown and the Willis Tower. If you are lucky you might catch some fireworks from the Navy Pier.

If you are looking for a great view of Chicago, skip the Willis Tower and go to John Hancock instead. We took the elevator to the Signature Lounge on 95th floor. The ride with the elevator is free but you should buy a drink at the lounge. Do that, prices are reasonable for Chicago and the view is worth it.... More

The view is amazing but it is pretty much the EXACT same thing as the Skydeck just without the Ledge. It was not cheap to get in and I think it took me all of 10 minutes to look out each of the windows

The views from the top of the Hancock Observatory were breathtaking. A couple years ago I had gone up the Sears (Willis) Tower, so on my visit in Chicago I thought I would see the view from 360 Chicago as well. We bought our tickets in the afternoon and didn't have to wait in line at all, and came back... More

My wife and I visited 360 Chicago just last week and were very impressed by the wonderful views. However, there's not much more to do than the views. Just to go up the elevator to see the views cost us $38, which we did not consider to be worth it. We also did the famous "tilt" which gives you a... More

Great views and no crowds - that basically covers it. The only person I would not recommend this attraction to would be someone who is afraid of heights.

You'll find better views from here. You get great views of Lake Michigan and the city. Try to go at night or sunset - great to see the city light up. Also take advantage of the audio tour. It's a little cheesy, but there are lots of good bits of information.

Like the sky deck at Willis tower this is a great view of the city. Of course there you can see the Hancock and here you can see the Sears tower. May as well do both! I also did the tilt here. For $7 it was worth it. It was a cool experience that gives you an adrenaline rush. If... More

This was a must being so close to where we were staying. I thought the views were similar to Willis but the lines were a lot shorter and I was up the top in under 10mins from entering! The Willis is of course more famous but if you can do both I would and see for your self.

Staying in Magnificent Mile

Neighborhood Profile
Magnificent Mile
Over 400 stores pack the concrete along Michigan Avenue, the eight-block stretch known as Magnificent Mile. This area between Oak Avenue and the Chicago River is more a shopping paradise than a full-out neighborhood. For prime upscale shopping, this is the place to go. It’s busy, energetic, and packed with shoppers. You'll also find hundreds of restaurants and dozens of hotels, all on the mid- to high-end scale. Some of the city’s most iconic buildings like the Wrigley Building, John Hancock Center and other architectural marvels define the magnificence of this neighborhood.
