Map/Directions

Willis Tower Skydeck

Home to the highest observatory in Chicago, the Skydeck at Willis Tower stands 1,353 feet high and features some pretty incredible views. On clear days, you'll be able to see upwards of 50 miles in any direction, which includes four states. In addition to Illinois, you'll see Indiana, Wisconsin, and Michigan. And if you're not afraid of heights, step out on to The Ledge, a series of glass boxes that extend out over four feet from the Skydeck, providing totally unobstructed views.
