Even on a rainy day a magnificent view. 103 floors up & you are in the clouds. The glass ledge pics are a must.

I was very excited to go and had high expectations of it. When we got there the line was long, but it was running fast to be only 2 people as cashiers. When we got to the top what I experienced was like a business more than anything, it was a long line for you to stand at the most... More

Incredible view from the deck also great photo opportunities on the area to photograph with plexiglass as it looks like you're hovering over the city. A bit scary but totally safe.

I went to visit Skydeck on a weekday around lunch time or just after lunch time. I felt it was pretty busy but the staff said that they were pretty slow today. So I can't even imagine what their "busy" looks like. On your way to the elevator, they have great information about Chicago and its history. Definitely worth taking... More

A really fun experience...I still love my photo from 'The Ledge.' Worth the cost for a great view....go in the evening at dusk to see the lights of the city.

The line was a bit long, but continuously moving. The windows you step into overlooking the city were awesome. Once of my favorite parts of our trip.

Sky Deck Chicago provides some of the best views of the city in particular with the glass deck and the signature room restaurant that is very good.

Get a city pass first!!! To get a better deal, skip the line! Pretty cool BRW during the day or at night! Definitely a great activist with family or young adults. We brown my Russian niece there. It's her first time in the US and Chicago and it was a hit. The popular picture poses were what she was looking... More

Awesome views of the city! They do a nice job with a film telling you the history of the tower and all. Skydeck would be scary if you are afraid of heights but it was very cool. We all enjoyed it!

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.
