The view from the 103rd floor skydeck is magnificent and don’t hesitate to step out on the ledge. It an experience! On a clear day you can see the four surrounding states. Beware of the long lines. more

Sears Tower 11/8/2006

I wanted to tell you about the Sears Tower located in Chicago, IL. It is one os the largest buildings in North America. When I was a child I remember my mom taking me and my younger brother to visit the Sears Tower quite often, we would go all the way to the top where you can stand up to the big glass windows and look out to see all of Chicago. The also had telescopes where you put in a dime and you could see things close up that were really so far away. Here is a links you can go to if you would like to read more about this tall building more

One of Chicago's Biggest and Best 6/17/2006

Whether you are a resident or tourist, I'm sure you will appreciate visiting the wonderful Sears Towers. Come up here for the amazing view, provided the skies are clear. You can also learn a lot from the tour. You can actually see parts of Indiana on a very clear day. Before you reach the top, you will see a short film explaining the history of the Sears Tower, and when you're at the top, they have a nice display of Chicago past and present. more

Awesome View 5/31/2006

The Sears Tower Skydeck is a great way to get an aswesome view of the city. I absolutely love it. My kids like it as well. They get real excited to see all the tiny cars and apartment buildings from up top. On a clear day you can see everything. The lake looks real nice from here. It does not cost too much to go up the sears tower. Its a fun experience. The last time I went here, I spent about 20 minutes up here. All tourists should make sure to go here. more

Great View 5/27/2006

The Sears Tower has an amazing view of Chicago. It is located in the business district of the loop. So, if you are a tourist then don't be expecting to walk here from the downtown shopping districts. It just looks close, because you can see it from such a long distance. more

Proud of myself that I made it to the top! 5/20/2006

Had to prove to myself and to my family that I could accomplish making it to the top right along with them. Who was I to ruin our family vacation by giving in to anxiety. I really don't like heights (LOL) so when we were in Chicago and my spouse suggested to the girls about going to the top of the Sears Tower...I had to just bite my lip and go along for the venture. Dubbed one of the tallest buildings it wasn't half as bad as I thought it would be. Once up there you can use the cameras to view around the city. Glad to have done it and have the experience. more

Now That's A View 5/12/2006

The Sears Tower is a world landmark. You can see it when you are coming into Chicago from miles back. If it is a really clear day then you can see it from about 15 miles. I am speaking from experience. The top of this building has an unbelievable view if you like to see people look like ants. Just be careful for those security guards in front. They might have taken their job a little too seriously when I went in there last. "Put the nail clippers down, and take two steps back!" more

UP UP UP.... 4/20/2006

The Sears Tower is something that definitely one of Chicago's defining factors. Its a great attraction for visitors and residents alike. I love to go here on clear, sunny days and make my way up to the top. It costs about ten bucks and you get to ride their super fast elevator up to the top floor. You can see the entire city from up above and you can take advantage of their binocular type machines to get more detailed views from up above. This is definitely an activity you want to do at some point or another! more

Breathtaking view 4/16/2006

A great place to take family and friends visiting Chicago. Its an amazing experience going on top of the tallest building in America The price to go to the observation deck is around 10 dollars and its an amazing view from the top up there. makes you feel awed standing at such a height and its an amazing experience looking towards miles and miles of stretched lands. Definitely worth a visit . more

Going Up 3/27/2006

It's worth visting here. Overal it's pretty cool. I have gone up here on a few occasions. It's obviously a different viewpoint than the Hancock bldg. I prefer going to the Hancock for this kind of thing. The Sears Tower's elevator is worth half the price of your admission, it's super fast so bring your chewing gum. Try to spend as much time as you can up there to get your moneys worth. Don't forget your camera. more

Skydeck 3/26/2006

The skydeck was amazing. I went on a night that was a bit cloudy so I wasn't able to see much past the water and out of the city - but the view of Chicago was amazing. I was up there while the sun was setting was was beautiful and also gave me a chance to see the view before dark and after dark when all the city lights were on! It was beautiful and for a decent price too! Just bring some gum to chew on when going up the elevator because your ears will pop! It is far worth it though! more

Tall Building 3/12/2006

Whenever any body from my family or my friends comes to visit me from out of the country, I make sure to take them to this great building. Everybody wants to see the biggest building in America. It is a very nice building and you can even go up to the last floor if you buy a ticket. I think it is like ten dollars and you can go and look thru their cameras to see even more clear the city for miles and miles. I love to bring guests here because they are so amazed by such a tall building. more

Great Building 2/26/2006

This is one spectactular building in Chicago. It stand out in the Chicago skyline not only because it is the tallest, but also because it is one of the most beautiful. It has a sleek design. Its also a great buildnig to go inside of. If you would like, you can purchase tickets to go to the top floor where you can use their telescopes to view the entire city (and much more from that great height!). It is a great experience and it is appropriate for any age group. more

Great View Of The City 10/16/2005

At Sears Tower Skydeck you can view the City of Chicago from above. At night you can see the entire skyline with lights. There is also resturants and visitor shops. You can also use the telescopes to view in certain areas of Chicago. The pricing are $11.95 for adults and $8.50 for children. It's a must see for vistors to Chicago to one of the tallest building in the world. There is the Sears Tower Parking Garage for parking but there is a charge by hour for parking. more

worth a look 8/16/2005

Granted it is a bit expensive considering it is just a building with a view, but I still say it's worth it. In addition to the view, there is also a center display which talks alot about the city's history. I believe they also said that on a clear day, you can see 4 states from the observation deck. I would much rather visit the Sears Tower and pay the $11 than mess with the Space Needle in Seattle which I hear isn't worth it. more

famous 8/10/2005

Sears Tower Building Office is used to the tallest building in the world. That’s why I visited it. First it took a long time for waiting to enter into building. Maybe too many visitors because of the summer season. When arrive the top floor, I entered into a small round room with glasses windows everywhere. Visitors can overview the whole downtown area. That’s all. I won’t visit second time. more

Sears Tower Observation Deck 8/1/2005

Everyone's heard of the Sears Tower; it's arguably the most famous landmark in Chicago. Right in the heart of the Financial District, this is an easy attraction to get to. Paying an $11 admission fee gets you up to the 103rd floor, to the observation deck. The elevator that takes you there does so in an amazing 45 seconds (!). Once on the top, you'll be able to ogle Chicago from every possible angle, thanks to the all-glass paneling on the deck. The price is a little steep for the 15 or so minutes you'll spend up there, but the views are extraordinary; you can see up to 30 miles on a clear day. This or the John Hancock is a must for Chicago visitors; residents might find it a bit too corny. Be advised that lines get realllly long on weekends; a great time to go is early-evening on a weeknight. You might not have to wait in line at all. And remember to bring your camera--photo-ops abound! Another tip: you can definitely skip the 10-minute movie they try to show you before you ascend to the top; it's a complete waste of time. more
