"On top of the US" Willis Tower (Formerly Sears Tower) Tip by melissa_bel

  Kids are admiring the view from the Sears Tower

The Sears tower is probably going to be on top of your list!
In the city that invented skyscapper, it hosts the second tallest building in the world, 1,450 feet high (443 meters), 110 stories... It's also a place of business with a lot of offices. For tourists like you and I, the skydeck is all that we're going to see: it's at 1,353 feet (412 meters), at the top floor. If the sky is clear, you'll be able to see 4 states! The skydeck also has a museum about the Tower's past. It's quite impressive when you look down and see cars not much bigger than ants!
Although the view from the Sears Tower is great, you'll know that the most beautiful cityscape is seen from the other "big girl" : The Hancock Center Tower.
