You must see Willis Tower if you are visiting Chicago. The views are just breathtaking! If you are feeling like a dare-devil, I would recommend that you take the picture in the glass area while jumping to capture a great moment! The staff was friendly and very welcoming!

The experience of stepping out on the 'deck" is quite thrilling I must say! You can see all the way to Michigan and to Wisconsin on a clear day!! The view is breath taking, and truly a feat to man!! Worth the effort to get there...a night time visit is just as pleasing to the eye!!

We did the skydeck in what used to be known as the Sears tower, we paid the "on the door" price $22 per adult As we had tickets for the city tour bus, we later found out they will sell you advance tickets for I think $18 per adult So worth considering Views are as per many other reviews- spectacular...

I wanted to take my two sons up to view the city. I had seen the sight when in my 20's and wanted to share the experience with them. We waited and hour (in line) to catch the elevator. I've never been bothered by elevators before but this time I began to get anxious. I stepped off the elevator, looked... More

My daughter and I ventured off to the Willis Tower during the Christmas holidays and enjoyed the time there. The view is breathtaking and not overwhelming. Be patient on very busy days but they are very good at moving people along pretty quickly.

I have been up a number of tall building across the world and still can't help feeling underwhelmed and ripped off. The Willis tower is no different. Pros - get there early and the queues are short - the height comparison in the lift was interesting Cons - of the four glass boxes which overhang only 2 are usable as... 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.
