Yahoo.com: The Most American Experience in Every Sate, Illinois “Sometimes to appreciate the greatness of our country, you need to see it from a different perspective, The Ledge, on the 103rd floor of Willis Tower in Chicago allows you to just that. The Chicago River, the shores of Lake Michigan, and the iconic Wrigley Field lie 1,353 feet below you, giving you an unparalleled view of the third largest city in the country.” – January 2016
