John Hancock Center - Review
Like skyscrapers everywhere, you’ll come to this place for it’s awesome observatory on the 94th floor. For the best views, visit at night. The restaurant here is pretty reasonably priced for the location, so it’s actually quite a good spot to take your beloved out to. Though you’d be charged for the observatory, their skyline bar itself is free, and the view from there is nearly as good. This place usually serves as a good alternative for the Sears Towers, especially since it’s much, much less crowded.

John Hancock Center, Chicago Reviews
Great experience, one not to miss! gorgeous view from all sides. The forward lean is only 90 seconds which is a bit short in my opinion. Nice documentary about the construction of the building and what it is like for people to live there. spend almost 2 hours there, made lots of pictures. go during a week day far less busy.
A must go place. The tower itself is a beauty. I love the entrance four and the sky lounge is the best. The views are to die for from the lounge. You can sip in your favourite drinks while you sink in the views. It has a titling window attraction which is also worth the visit. If you have the time have dinner in the restaurant.
I've been here a couple times, mostly to give friends the experience. Gives you great views of the city, as well as the lake and pier. The open air corridor is really cool, as it gives you an actual sense of being up so high. The elevator to get you there takes less than 90 seconds I believe. It's pretty entertaining when you're up there with groups that have halfway convinced themselves that it's worth doing, and halfway are still very frightened by the heights. I would recommend trying it out if you're downtown and have time to kill.
Absolutely the best place to get a splendid aerial view of Chicago. The observatory deck on the 94th floor gives you an all around magnificent view of the windy city. The best part is that you can sip on a drink while absorbing the great view. The tilt is also fun but the photographer there needs to do a better job for sure. Back pics aren't exactly the ones people would purchase!
I always try to hit Signature Lounge whenever I go to Chicago. One of the best and cheapest place to see the view of Chicago downtown and the Michigan lake. I simply order drinks, snacks, and enjoy the view. It's a great place to chill after walking down Magnificent Mile. For ladies, don't forget to check out the ladies restroom 😊
