  • Equally as impressive as the Sears tower, this gigantic building has impressive views of downtown Chicago and the Lakes. I visited here the same day I visited the Sears tower when I was in Chicago. I had nothing better to do so I thought I would check out the views from both these buildings. The elevator ride was quick and fast. I was alone and had a great time as I pondered over downtown Chicago. It was cold and windy. Which ever skyscraper you climb in Chicago, the views will be good. I recommend day time over night time.
  • I love the 360 at the John Hancock, and to be honest I think the view here is a lot better than the one at the Sears tower. The building is right next to the lake and you can see Chicago from a different perspective. The tilt ride is not that exciting, I did it once and found it kinda lame. I will definitely recommend going up before sunset you will love it !!!
