The view from the 360 Observatory is incredible, on a cloudy day, a clear day, sunset or after dark . If you are feeling adventurous, I recommend you try the Tilt.

"Not a Chicago Requirement"

Many people want to go up the Hancock Center and the Willis Tower, but really, it's not something you need to spend a day doing if you're visiting Chicago. Sure, it's cool and I've gone up a few times with some visiting family, but it is definitely not something every visiting person must do.

The view is unbelievable.The full vista from Lake to Navy Pier to the mass of skyscrapers, to the Willis building with the expanse of flat plains beyond. Best to get there for sunset we were told. We missed it but the reflections on the Windows of the numerous glass buildings was fantastic.

Excellent way of having overview of Chicago from 102 stories up. The kids especially enjoyed the clear glass decks for the scary factor.

"John Hancock - Families this Way, Adults Only Head To The 96th Floor Signature Lounge"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed June 22, 2017 NEW
Spectacular Views of the city on a clear night. If you have a family the observation deck in nice because there are a lot of facts about the tower and Chicago. The tilt is a bit over-rated mainly because the waits can be annoyingly long just for a 10 minute experience. The views of the city from the Observation deck are some of the best around. If I have a group consisting of only adults, rather than spend the money on tickets for the observation deck, I prefer to head up to the 96th floor to the Signature Lounge. There is no cost to go into the lounge. Instead of purchasing a ticket, my guests and I purchase a drink or two while my guests see the same views as you would see from the Observation Deck. There are tables to sit at and the atmosphere is classy. It makes for a nice end to an evening when I have out f town visitors. Of course the Signature Lounge option is not available if you have children or teen agers. You must be 21 to go to the Signature Lounge.
