Best Spots to Take Skyline Photos Day & Night
Save

Hey guys, where do you suggest to take nice shots of the Chicago skyline:

( 1 ) Daytime

( 2 ) Evening - when safe to do so

I've read for example the steps of the Field Museum would be a great spot for skyline+lake (but is it safe in the evening?)

Thanks!

The Offshore rooftop restaurant at Navy Pier offers gorgeous views. Or just Navy Pier. For a view of John Hancock and surrounds behind trees, from South Pond in Lincoln Park.

Promontory Point in Hyde Park. An easy walk from MSI if you are visiting it.

Olive park, which is right next to Navy Pier and Adler planetarium are two of my favorite spots to take pictures of Chicago skyline and the lake.
