You get some amazing views of the lake and cityscape from the top here. It can get foggy in Chicago at times, so late booking is sometimes advised. There are optional extras to do the tilt... Not for the fiat-hearted! A must do when visiting...More

A great history of the tower and sights of Chicago. The ledge was the best experience of all. You could stay out as long as you wanted.

If you want to have a nice view of Chicago downtown and its surrounding area with a beautiful view of lake Michigan then visit the Willis Tower.

The prices were not bad given it’s really just a long elevator ride and views. They really pushed the professional photos option which were very expensive. But overall a good visit.

Downtown / The Loop
Often visitors' first stop in Chicago, The Loop is a
good starting point to sample the city's energy and
flavor. This central business district boasts
Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier
shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep
your camera busy for hours. You won’t find too many
photo galleries of downtown Chicago without a shot of
Millennium Park and Cloud Gate (“The Bean”), one of

Ask the front desk before you pass security. I had a coat check option on the 82nd floor, but it will be where you end up, most likely not at the bottom/entrance.

We didn't buy the fast pass. We went early (9:30-10:00) on a weekday and we're at the top in under 30 min. That includes buying the tickets and going through security.
