You can't leave Chicago until you experience skydeck!! Get there as soon as it opens to avoid long lines. It is definitely worth the wait. Your adrenaline will be pumping as you step out on the skydeck and look down. It makes a great photo...More

Get the city pass and skip the lines here. Otherwise, don't come after museum close or the line will be hours long. The views are amazing. There will be a line for the Ledge.

Amazing view from the top. Amazing pictures and amazing feeling specially at night time. Not really recommended to people with Herat problems, or scare to heights but it's really worth it once on the top floor.

This place should be one in your list of to-do in Chicago. You can either visit during the day or after dark to see the beautiful city lights. Great place for posing and taking pictures😁

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
