Where are we going today?

Have you ever wanted to see what Chicago looks like to those birds that fly overhead?

If you head to 360 Chicago, you will find out!

Located in the John Hancock Observatory within downtown Chicago, 360 Chicago gives families a chance to view the city a whopping 94 stories up! And the best place to view it from? Their unique open-air Skywalk that will really take you to the edge!

Don't worry kids, it's very safe! In fact, instead of glass there is actually a high-strength, stainless steel screen that will protect you. How does that sound?

In addition to the amazing Skywalk experience 360 Chicago actually holds fun events that you might want to put in your diaries!

Maybe you might stumble across a Photography Night, where you can visit for a 3 hour block and take photos of the stunning sunset across the city.  Great for those creative families who want to improve their skills!

Maybe you want to enjoy some music as the DJ plays as the sun goes down, or speak to people about the architecture of the city.

Don't miss the interactive technology that you can find, which is a great way for kids to learn about the city, and all the sights from every angle. There are touch screens with HD views, as well as audio tours that offer facts and history as you make your way around the deck.

Pretty cool!

So why not enjoy some learning, fun, incredible views and new experiences - all in the windy city of Chicago!

    Even though I am writing the review after visiting it after a couple of months. But the feeling is yet to sink in. The view is so dead awesome.
    Please make sure that you visit it on a day with bright sunlight. I fully agree with the fellow reviewers, this view is so much better than the one experiences at Willis Tower.

    Secret : The elevator is so damm fast, it just takes you at the deck in a very short span of time.

    John Hancock Building provides a beautiful scenic view of downtown Chicago and Lake Michigan.We visited the bar on the 96th floor on a warm September day. I went to the Ladies Room which had floor to ceiling picture window overseeing downtown Chicago. Every woman was surprisingly delighted by the view. We all stopped to take photos. I have never seen anything like it.

    You must do the view from 95th floor and up. You can buy cocktails from the lounge and enjoy the awesome view.

    They have pretty decent retail stores to check out

    - they also have zipcar parking lot on 7 and 8th floor
    - ground floor has postoffice, UPS drop box, cheesecake factory, coffee/sandwich shop...etc
