    Just a short walk from the Jackson Blue Line station, the Skydeck is a must-see on your trip to Chicago. From the 103rd floor of the Willis Tower (the locals still call it the Sears Tower--forgive us), the city looks like a Lite-Brite at night. If you're brave, you can stand in a glass box and look at the ground 1353 feet below you. It's quite a view.

    Get a whole different view of the Windy City from atop the Willis Tower - formerly known as the Sears Tower. This engineering marvel is perhaps one of the best-known buildings in the city, and remains the tallest building in the Western Hemisphere. The Skydeck allows you to walk out over the city on a glass platform, giving you one of the best, most unobstructed views that you could hope for.

    Great place to go! First time is amazing but the second time not so much! A bit overpriced considering you only spend about 30 minutes up there. Do not be afraid to step on the lodge! It is a must experience! The panoramic views are amazing! For better pictures I advise to go during the daytime. FYI, the lines can be extremely long and it can get a bit crowded once you reach the top. Best time to avoid going is during holidays and summer time. Go any other time of the year to fully enjoy!

    I recommend buying the tickets online in order to skip the ticket line. It is usually a 2-3 hour wait if tickets have not been purchased. We waited about 45 minutes to get to the top with the pre ordered tickets.

    The Skydeck on the 103rd Floor of the Sears Tower offers views of four states and one Great Lake on a good day. You're at the top of the tallest building in North America and the third tallest in the world (as of 2012). There's a portion where you can stand on a glass ledge and look down a thousand feet onto Chicago.
