The newly renovated observation deck of the John Hancock Building, 360 CHICAGO provides unparalleled views of Chicago’s skylines and shorelines. Travel to the 94th floor on a high-speed elevator, and then step out into the stunning, sun-filled observatory space with panoramic views of the entire city. Located just off the iconic Magnificent Mile, 360 CHICAGO is must-do attraction and a local favorite.
360 CHICAGO provides some of the best views in the entire city of Lake Michigan and the iconic Navy Pier. Their newly redesigned interactive exhibit space provides an enlightening experience at the top, as you peer down on the city from over 1,000 feet in the air. Plus, its convenient, central location makes it a great stop at the end of the long day of shopping, dining, and exploring Chicago cultural scene.

Comments about Smart Destinations :
I Liked the views from here better than the sky deck but it feels more bare bones. The informational displays are difficult to operate and don't have much of a historical view.
