"Sears Tower Skydeck" Willis Tower (Formerly Sears Tower) Tip by Paulie_D


If anything can truly be called a 'Must See' in Chicago, it's the Sears Tower Skydeck.

From the top of the Sears Tower you get one of the best views of Chicago. At 1,353 feet, the Skydeck is the highest observatory in Chicago. On a clear day, you can see 40 to 50 miles. You can see 4 states - Michigan, Indiana, Illinois and Wisconsin.

The best time to visit is after 4 pm for great sunsets and twinkling night-scape viewing. Remember to turn the flash off on your camera before taking a picture through a window.

Sears Tower is handicapped accessible and prepared for wheel-chairs, strollers and scooters.
