The 360 Chicago Observation Deck had a spectacular view of the North, East, West, and South view of Chicago. I came on the day of the Air Show and you could see an amazing view of all the airplanes flying over the water. They also have Tilt attraction which is $7 ($3 card where you can get your pictures uploaded... More

The place is lovely and the service was decent. The menu looked good, but we couldn't eat because it took over 90 minutes to get up top. We were told 30 minutes so the 90 was just...too long. Spoiled the experience.

Very simply, all you can do is buy expensive souvenirs and look out the windows. Nice on a sunny day. Very expensive unless you are a Chicago resident. The TILT was ok, although over in one minute.

In Chicago for 3 nights and we bought the Chicago city pass to see the main sites. We went to the observation deck and the views were amazing. We also paid a bit extra to experience ' the tilt'. It's not as scary as it looks and great fun.

Summer trip before freshman year of college began was a few days in Chicago. This stop was great. Definitely the best view of the city from the top out of your options!

Having seen other reviews I visited early morning as it was opening. Views of this beautiful city are outstanding, especially on such a sunny day like I had. It's very affordable and I highly recommend the sky deck as part of the Chicago experience.

Amazing views of Chicago skyline. The only downside was that the bar was closed due to a private event.

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.
