The glass Skydeck is what makes it different than any other skyscraper in the nation. It is an amazing feeling to stand in that all glass balcony 103 floors above the ground. To avoid long lines, it is better to visit this early in the day. We went there around 2pm when they said that the wait would be 2... More

The view from the Willis Tower view is amazing. They give you a small presentation of the history of thw tower and was very interesting. You will have to get ready to wait, since it gets packed. To get a good picture you will have to look into the slow season/slow times. We waited over an hour to get to... More

We had a great time going to the top and viewing the city from the glass window boxes! Well worth the trip! The video in the elevator was an awesome way to get a perception of just how high up you go in the tower! We went mid-morning, mid-week and didn't have any crowds.

Just awesome! If you visit Chicago stop by and make a picture and enjoy the view! It's pretty cool! If you are too scare to highs probably you won't enjoy it as much as someone who's not... I'm a bit scare to highs but I like to overcome what I fear so this was a good opportunity :)

We arrived here excited to see the city from the tallest building our family has ever been in. We paid a bit more than expected for just a view. The elevator ride was a bit scary as they pack you like sardines and if something goes wrong...when we got to the top, the view was amazing and great for photos.... More

Willis Tower was one of my favorite. On a clear day your views are amazing loved the glass ledge! Go early in the morning to beat the crowds. Took us 20 min to get through lines and also buy the tickets. Tried the day before around noon wait time was over 2hours. So go early!

We had a beautiful day to see as far as the eye could imagine. We were told it would be a 2 hour wait. It only ended up being one hour, so that was a big plus.

Great views of the city and surrounding area! They offer a military discount (free ticket) so make sure you ask for it. They used to offer a law enforcement discount but unfortunately took that away. I have been up in the Willis Tower a few times... this was by far the busiest (1.5 hour wait). Make sure you try to... More

Often visitors' first stop in Chicago, The Loop is a good starting point to sample the city's energy and flavor. This central business district boasts Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep your camera busy for hours. You won’t find too many photo galleries of downtown Chicago without a shot of Millennium Park and Cloud Gate (“The Bean”), one of the most iconic landmarks in the city. A stunning skyline coupled with cultural attractions like the Art Institute of Chicago present a Downtown where work and play peacefully coexist.
