If you’re looking for one of the most unique family activities downtown Chicago has to offer, Skydeck should be at the top of your itinerary. You’ll find Skydeck on the upper floors of the historic Willis Tower, formerly known as the Sears Tower. This landmark is just a 5-minute walk from nearby Union Station in the heart of downtown, so it’s easy to fit into a full day of family activities in Chicago. Willis Tower is an iconic monument in itself as one of the tallest buildings in the Western Hemisphere. With a staggering 110 floors and 1,450 feet in height, Willis Tower gives families a brand new perspective of the Windy City.


There’s no better spot in town to get a view of the entire city than Skydeck. Visitors can enjoy the 360-degree panoramic view of the city from the large glass windows that surround the observatory, extending 50 miles in all directions. In fact, you can even see four different states from the same floor! In addition to the amazing views in Skydeck, families can also opt to visit The Ledge. The Ledge is a state-of-the-art clear structure crafted of high-strength laminated glass that extends 4.3 feet from the skyscraper’s 103rd floor. This allows you to look directly beneath your feet from 1,353 feet in the air!
