In 60 seconds, your elevator climbs to the 103rd floor of the second-tallest building in the United States. From the breathtaking Skydeck, marvel at sights reaching 4 states, scan Chicago's iconic skyline, and venture out onto The Ledge—a thrilling glass balcony—to cap off your visit.
Standing 1,353 feet (412 m) above Chicago’s sprawling urban grid, the Willis Tower’s steel-framed tower is specifically constructed to withstand the city's infamous wind—you may even feel a slight sway if visiting during a blustery spell.
Enhance your experience by stepping out to The Ledge, a glass balcony extending from the tower's façade. Look beyond the epic skyline toward Lake Michigan's striking shore and glistening water. From this vantage point, it's the skyscrapers that are looking up at you.
Once you've taken in the cloud-level vistas, snag a seat for a showing of Reaching for the Sky, a short movie that traces the Chicago's rise to the top of the architectural world. After the flick, spend some time engaging with the digital floor displays and fascinating trivia games.
