SkyDeck Chicago is the Observatory Deck of the world-famous Willis Tower (formerly the Sears Tower). Perched 1,353 feet up in the air on the 103rd floor of the tower, SkyDeck Chicago provides some of the best views of the city, from Navy Pier to Soldier Field.

You’ll also find interactive exhibits and historical photographs to learn about the building’s prestigious history. It’s a must-see Chicago attraction and a perennial favorite with visitors from around the globe.

In addition to being one of the most famous architectural marvels of the western world – and one of the Seven Wonders of Chicago – SkyDeck Chicago is the ideal vantage point to see and scope out all of Chicagoland.

You can even see pieces of four different states! If you’re brave enough, you can also step out on “The Ledge,” the all-glass balcony that extends four feet from the building’s edge out into space.
