Highly recommend this. As it is lower than the Willis Tower, the buildings are much "closer". Go early to avoid line ups. We got there just after opening, around 9:15 am and it was a breeze. If you want to do the 360 it costs an extra $7 per person.

Visited on a Sunday afternoon in mid September. There was hardly anyone there, so we got straight up without having to queue. Two or three different ticket options: standard viewing $20, standard viewing with a cocktail $25, and standard viewing with an additonal $7 to get tilted. We got the cocktail and tilt option, which was great. There's a bar... More

We booked online and chose a weekday morning to avoid the queues. Friendly staff, nice historical information on the walls about the city. Once upstairs you have a gift shop, bar and Tilt ride. For an extra cost you can hold onto a glass door as it tilts you over the edge of the building. Get the sun and stars... More

My Girlfriend and I visited on a Saturday lunchtime. On entrance the staff advised us there was an hour and a half wait time. We didn't have a Chicago CityPass but we did have a Chicago Go ticket. All along the walls inside there is trivia regarding the Willis Tower, which I found to be informative and entertaining. The queue... More

While visiting Chicago to celebrate our fiftieth wedding anniversary, my wife and I went to the 360 Chicago Observation Deck. It took forever to reach the top, and when we did there were very long lines to step out onto the deck. The views were fantastic and the feeling standing on the deck looking down was exciting. Everyone was in... More

It was very fun to go to the 360 deck. We purchased a vacation pack and received a great discount. I enjoyed how they had a bar upstairs so you could have a drink and admire the view.

This was the first thing we did after landing at Chicago ! I did pre-book the tickets and Tilt. I don't think this was necessary but I did not want to chance it being booked up with a large party etc. Phenomenal views. I chose this over the Willis tower because of the tilt experience. This really was worth it.... More

Alway a great place to bring visitors. You have a view of the city of Chicago and l the beautiful lakeshore. IF lucky you can try and see the other side of Lake Michigan.

Great views . However, The staff dealing with the photos is not that good. The guy taking the picture didn't want to tell us the price of the photo. He said to ask to the people selling it at the exit . Then the photo was too expensive and we didn't buy it.... so the lady selling the photo showed... More

I had some free time After a work trip and decided to stop here to check it out. It was worth it. The views are breath taking. I also tried Tilt. I am afraid of heights but I did it anyway and it was cool. This is a must on a trip to Chicago.

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.
