Great view of the city. They have an option to lean outside the building at a 30 degree angle for $7. My girlfriend did it and seemed to enjoy it.

We chose 360 because we wanted a snack and a cocktail while viewing the city. This observation deck let's you lean right against the glass.

Formerly called John Hancok building offers the breathtaking scenery, on lake Michigan as well as on CHIcago loop scenery. Ticket prices are cheaper than for the Willis tower and you have option to buy it with drink (i highly recommend). The observation deck has the sitting area for the sunset watching and high tables to enjoy your drink as well.... More

We went right when they opened and were the first people in line. It never did get too crowded but we can see how it could if we were there much longer. There is a Big Bus stop right out front. There is a Cheesecake Factory on the same floor as the entrance. It's kind of hidden so good to... More

Thank you for your feedback. We absolutely want our guests to get the most value for their money. Our general admission price of $20 makes us the cheapest observation deck in Chicago (less than Willis), and much more affordable than comparable attractions (Empire State Building, Top of the Rock, CN Tower, Space Needle, etc.). We recommend looking into programs like... More

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.
