Willis Tower Skydeck is a famous tourist location, but did you know that Willis Tower was also where key scenes from the movie "Transformers: Dark of the Moon" was filmed? Totally amazing stop to tour and see a bit of Chicago and think about the cool movie scenes.
Enjoy the View – Living within 60 miles of Chicago, I visit often. The Sears Tower is a must see at least once a year for me. No matter what the season or time of day, I am always impressed.
Not just for tourists... – The best view of the city is accessible to everyone. You don't have to be a tourist to enjoy the Sears skydeck. It's pretty amazing - on a clear day, I swear you can see the Mississippi. If you don't mind watching a little Opra video on the tour, I would say it's a great thing to do - at least once.
Wow, what a view! – I was taken to the Sears Skydeck when I was visiting your lovely city. I'll have to admit the ride up was a bit uneasy. The elevator lifts off and your ears pop about two or three times. They also PACK each elevator to the top and on the way down as well. Which makes the ride a little uncomfortable. But once you're at the top, the view is spectacular. Chicago's history and facts line the walls in the center of the floor. Exhibits for small children and adults a like give a glimpse into Chicago's past. All the way around is a breath taking view of the city and lake. A must do if you're visiting Chicago.
Oh, that elevator ride... – Yeah, it's pretty cool once you get to the top, but the ride up gives me the heebie-jeebies. You're squeeze into an elevator and it's ripping skyward. No doubt it's just me, but I get claustrophobic. The view at the top is unreal -- up among the clouds and you can see the whole city. Be forewarned, though, it's pretty pricey -- both for the tickets and especially for the parking.
AWESOME VIEW – YOU CAN SEE THE ENTIRE CITY OF CHICAGO AND MORE!!!
Chicago girl – Take a ride to the top and look out at the views, then look down! Fun for any kid or tourist.
Pretty Nice View From Here – Whenever you visit the Chicago area I would definitely recommend that you visit the Sears Towers, if you don't mind viewing Chicago from the tallest building in the city area. Here you can see soldier field and the river that cuts through the city of Chicago. You can also get a good view of the Michigan River.
out of the way, but good for visitors – There's not much else going on down in this neighborhood, but it's pretty cool to go up to the top of this building--once the world's tallest--and take a look down at the city below. It takes a special trip; if you're pressed for time, do the Hancock instead. But get there early.
My View – In my view I have been there and it is spectacular ! The view is amazing on a clear day and if your like me even on a cloudy day the way light hits the clouds will take your breath away.
