Willis Tower (formerly named and still commonly referred to as Sears Tower) is no longer the tallest building in the world, still the Tower remains an important destination. It’s main attraction is it’s observatory deck, which looks out around for about fifty miles. The best part of the sky deck is the glass balcony, a ledge that extends out of the building, allowing you the surreal feeling of standing on thin air. If you happen to be here when the sun goes down, the sights are just beautiful.

Great place to view Chicago. Bought the fast pass in advance. Didn't need it because their was no line. Would wait to purchase tickets until you get there so you don't overspend. Assess the line and buy on your phone accordingly or at the counter if there is no line. Will need to potentially do this outside as cell phone reception inside is tough depending on carrier. Fast pass is issued by time slot so if you are tight or time like I was you will have to take your chances on way or the other.
It has a nice view over the city. They have detailed boards explaining what you're looking at so you can identify landmarks, even if you're new to, or visiting, the city. It's a fun thing to check of your bucket list. It's neat to look through the glass floor at the street 100 floors below!
It is a cool experience because you can be on 103rd floor to observe everything. DON'T go on the weekends or holidays unless you have time to wait for hours in line. Best way is to buy fast pass or city pass so you can cut the line. If you drive, parallel park. It's a lot cheaper than the garage. When you get up there, try to avoid standing behind those people that take half an hour for pictures. People usually don't understand that they can wait in as many lines as they want. Keep the line moving, take some pictures then get in another line if you still want more pictures!!!
Really enjoyed the experience of walking out on the glass deck and being able to look down to the river and street. Was very busy but really enjoyed bypassing the lines with our city pass. It took awhile to get on the glass deck due to a few divas taking quite a few selfies of themselves. But worth the wait. It is a free for all to get on the glass deck. But it seemed to work. so be prepared. We
It's a neat place. It was fun traveling to the top of the building in the elevator and learning about the building's history. It's best to get there very early if you're the type to really take your time in museums and read the placards. The place fills up fast, and people hog the windows. The "professional" photos the staff takes are on the expensive side.
