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.

We came around 5 PM. It was almost the sunset time so we get the chance to see the city at the day and night. The views were spectacular! The lake was frozen and when the city lights came up we were bewitched. We experienced TILD! It was pretty fun! We loved this place!

It you want the ultimate Chicago experience, this is it. Beautiful view of the LSD to the north, and clear view of the grid-like Chicago streets. Go at dusk, so you can watch the sunset and see the lights become alive in the city.

"Better views than Willis "

Visiting my college son in Chicago, we decided to check out the views from here. SO glad we did! Great vistas of the lake and skyline. There were no crowds and we enjoyed sitting, having a beverage and soaking up the sights. I enjoyed this much better than the Willis. Less money, less crowds and better views.

Came here during the night. I think Chicago is best viewed during the evening. It's along the Maginificent Mile so it's very accessible.
