It costs nothing to travel up to the top of this building, 2 floors above the Observatory (which does cost money), to have a drink in the bar. Take the lift to the 96th floor. The view is spectacular, especially the south side at sunset,...More

Beautiful view of the city and Lake Michigan---but the elevator ride is small, crowded and enclosed (NO windows!). At $12 each-I wouldn't go back without a buy 1 get 1 free coupon from AAA.

I chose this attraction because I didn’t want to walk on the see-through glass :) I liked the screens pointing out landmarks and the gorgeous view of the lake. The bar was a nice addition, as were the entertainers performing during my visit.

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.

You do get to skip the ticketing line. You will still need to wait for an elevator.
