Editorial

A picture to remember. Want to take a great picture? Remember, when shooting towards the windows; use the “backlight” function on your camera (if available). Turn off your flash and use a polarizer filter, if you want to see what’s out the window behind your subject. Or easiest of all, have us take the picture. Ask any of our Skydeck team members to take your photos or have our professional photo team take your picture and have it ready for you in a custom folder before you leave. For the enjoyment of all guests, no tripods are allowed. You are more than welcome to bring your monopod. Skydeck Chicago is child-friendly with family bathrooms located on the lower museum level. The building is also equipped with ramps making it easy to navigate strollers. Entertain the kids. The excitement can start even before you visit, with our Willis Tower Skydeck Kids Club. Visit the For Kids section for details and a variety of interactive games, quizzes, scavenger hunts and coloring pages to get your little ones excited for their visit. The fun doesn’t stop there, before they even reach the Skydeck they can experience the knee-high attractions created just for them. They can step on interactive digital floor displays that place them on the pitchers mound at Wrigley Field and then visually shoot them 103 floors up above the stadium. There’s something around every corner until they reach the Skydeck where they experience views like no other and if they dare to stand out on The Ledge!

About 300ft. higher than the 360 Chicago view, the Willis tower also offers a magnificent view of the city. If you are traveling with children and especially young children still in the stroller definitely visit the Willis Tower. There are ramps that make it very handicapped and stroller accessible. There is also a Skydeck kids club which offers information and games prior to the visit and then games when you are there! For more information to see if your kids would be interested see the ‘For Kids’ section on the website.

A Whole New View

Formerly the Sears Tower, the Willis Tower & Skydeck are a fabulous way to enjoy the city of Chicago from a new view - looking down! With expansive panoramic views and plenty of windows to the sky, guests will find plenty to see from atop one of the world's tallest buildings. Informational placards point you in the direction of Wrigley Field, Navy Pier and Soldier Field. If you dare, step out onto the full telephone booth-style ledge that has you literally standing on top of the city (it took me a few tries to step out!) My only critique is that it can get costly depending on the number of people in your group and occasionally it is crowded. My suggestion? Find coupons and go early!
