After reading your comments, John Hancock Center is sure to go. We chose to eat directly on the 95th floor. There are buffets and orders. The food is fresh and delicious. Steak, fish, shrimp, crab, dessert, ice cream, etc. The price is reasonable, with a per capita of 50-60 dollars. Beautiful scenery, people linger back and forth, because the Willis Tower to queue up, three days later again 95 floors of beautiful scenery delicious, ha ha ha.
The Hancock Tower, because it's right next to Lake Michigan, on one side of the skyline and on the other side of the lake, can see blue water in the daytime, unlike Sears'viewing platform, it's not looking around in the center. Upper viewing platform overlooks all living beings, lower viewing platform returns to all living beings. From dusk to sunset, this scene is very suitable for listening to the early sunset.
John Hancock Center is the third tallest building in Chicago. It's located at the north end of Michigan Avenue. It's easy to find. Like the Willis Tower, it has a viewing platform, making it two buildings open to the public and overlooking the panoramic view of Chicago. But the building is less famous than the Willis Tower. Most visitors will choose Willis, so the queue is very long. Relatively speaking, there are not many visitors to the building, and there is little queuing (at least no queuing during the day) on the viewing platform. The viewing platform of the building is on the 94th floor. Although it is not as high as the viewing platform of Willis Building, it is closer to Lake Michigan and has a good viewing effect. The 95th floor of the building is a restaurant. If you eat in the restaurant, you can get rid of the $15 sightseeing ticket, so it's not expensive to eat here.
John Hancock Center actually looks a little like Willis Tower. The Signature Room at the 95th floor has a different elevator from the viewing platform. If you go to the restaurant, you can go there without tickets. The price of ordering a cocktail is similar to the cost of the viewing platform. It's good to have a meal and enjoy the 360 panoramic view of Chicago. According to the guide, Signature Room's women's bathroom has a large floor-to-floor window, and the view of Chicago from there is very good.
In Chicago Night View, the 360 Chicago Observation Deck is recommended as an excellent place to view Chicago's fascinating night view from high altitude. Brave can hold the window, tilt the angle of view overlooking the city, thrilling and fun, adults and children can try. Of course, you can also gracefully choose a high-altitude restaurant to enjoy the fascinating night view. I recommend The Signature Room at the 95th, come here for an unforgettable Christmas!
Another Chicago skyscraper, closer to the lake than the Willis Tower, has a beautiful view of the lake.
One of Chicago's tallest buildings, close to Lake Michigan, offers the best view of the lake, as well as the city. Days are recommended. There is a sub-project, that is, one side of the viewing platform is equipped with outward tilting devices, visitors can grasp the handrails, as the viewing platform extends outward, overlooking the scenery, daring friends can try. The ice cream on the top floor is also good. Online booking is much cheaper than on-site ticket purchasing, which can be checked directly by two-dimensional code.
Sunny Sunday, the day before Labor Day in the United States, is so crowded! Buy tickets for a team, go upstairs for a longer team. Fortunately, I bought the tickets ahead of time and queued one less. The view upstairs is good, 360 degrees overlooking Chicago, and there is an endless blue lake of Michigan.
