Maybe it was the wrong time of the day, but it was crowded and took a very long time to be able to get out on the SkyDeck. Cool feature, but man, long wait and then you only had a minute or two for selfies. Hard to adjust your flash and camera settings when you have 100 people waiting for... More

We visited this viewpoint at the top of the Hancock Tower on the recommendation of friends who live locally. It's close to the lake so you get a complete change of view as you walk round the enclosed viewing deck. The entrance is from the plaza below road level and the information in the entrance area gives an interesting overview... More

When you visit a major city it is always nice see it from above. You just cannot fully appreciate the expansiveness and major landmarks unless you can view them from a higher elevation. At 1000 feet elevation in a flat landscape you can see a lot of area, even on a cloudy day. If you have flexibility try to go... More

We enjoyed this - made Tilt reservations for 4:30, so we were upstairs and got to enjoy a sunny view, plus the sunset.We did Tilt, which was fun - it doesn't last very long, and you are not allowed to take your camera, phone, or take any pictures. They have an employee who takes a few pictures, then they have... More

This was really beautiful for some great views of the city. We had the Go Chicago card, so entry was free, but if you're not into paying for entry alone, you could always visit the lounge for a drink with a view. I'd recommend stopping by one way or another.

Fantastic views on a clear day and loads of interesting historical information in the waiting area. The elevator takes less than one minute to reach the top. Lines are mainly indoors so comfortable on a hot or cold day. Tilt costs extra. I'm not sure i would wait more than 30 minutes. There are a few gift shops, the largest... 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.
