"Sears Tower" Willis Tower (Formerly Sears Tower) Tip by TRAVELCHICK29

  The Sears TOwer

standing at 1450 feet and 110 stories high, it was named the world's tallest building until 1996 when it was surpassed by the Petronas building in Kuala Lumpur. But it still holds 3 of the world's tallest title: tallest building including the antenna, highest occuppied floor, and highest roof. On a clear day from the Skydeck observatory (103rd floor) one can see the states of Indiana, Illinois, Wisconsin, and Michigan. The Sears Tower is so high, a phone call from the top to ground floor is considered long distance! ticket prices $9.95 each, includes a 30minute show about Chicago, its humble beginnings and how it came to be one of the most successful cities in the world.
