Friday Chi Faves: Skydeck Chicago

Tallest building in the western hemisphere.

1,450 feet and 110 stories tall.

Skydeck Chicago on the 103rd floor of the Willis Tower (the old Sears Tower) is a Chi-town must see. Magnificent 360-degree views of sweet home Chicago. You can see 40-50 miles on a clear day, meaning you can actually see 3 other states from the skydeck (not kidding — this is real life). Wave to friends in Wisconsin, family in Michigan, or no one that I actually know in Indiana.

And then there is the Ledge — or I guess you could say ledges. Four glass-enclosed balconies that you freaking STEP OUT ON.  It seriously looks like we’re floating but we’re not:

 

Freaky.

Bottom line: great attraction, unique experience, family-friendly, and sure to result in a nice collection of photos. There is admission to enjoy this experience and there can also be a wait so plan ahead.

About thetwentysixthyear

September 6, 2011: I turn twenty-six years old. I live and work in downtown Chicago and really can't complain about too much -- great family, great friends, great life. So this is my personal blog. Experiencing and living my twenty-sixth year. I have no idea what to expect or where I'll be one year from now ... but one thing is certain: I will enjoy the ride.
