Willis Tower

Willis Tower

4.5/5488 Reviews
Observation Deck
Sun - Sat 10:00 AM - 8:00 PM (Local time)
Hate waiting for elevators? You might want to consider finding yourself a job inside the former headquarters of Sears, Roebuck, and Company; it has 103 of them so, chances are, there will always be one waiting for you. The skyscraper, formerly known as the Sears Tower (a name which is still commonly used), is actually nine square buildings bundled together; an engineering strategy to help the 110 storey structure resist Chicago’s infamously high winds. When it finished construction in 1974, it was the world’s tallest building at 1,451 feet. The 110 storey building lost that title to the Petronas Towers in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia in 1998. The Skydeck, on the 103rd floor, allows visitors the best view of the city and provides an interactive experience. Those with a strong constitution can even step out into one of several glass boxes that hang over the building’s ledge.

Statue/Sculpture
Open all day (Local time)
The Cloud Gate is also known as The Bean because it looks like a bean. It is located in Chicago"s Millennium Park. The sleek exterior of this sculpture reflects the distorted Chicago skyline, making it a popular photography spot for tourists in Chicago. Cloud Gate is known as a symbolic and innovative work. The mirror effect of the statue is reminiscent of the distorting mirrors in previous amusement parks.But there is a significant use for it to make the giant Cloud Gate look much lighter.

Chinatown

Featured Neighbourhood
Chinatown is open all day, but the business hours on the streets are not the same. (Local time)
Chinatowns throughout the world tend to have rather itinerant histories. Chicago’s is no exception. In 1890, it was situated along Clark between Van Buren and Harrison Streets. By 1910, it settled in its current locale near Cermak Road and Wentworth Avenue, but has expanded over the years. Today, the colorful corner of the city is alive with traditional festivals, the scents of exotic spices from vendors, and a cacophony of dialects emanating from busy dumpling houses and noodle shops. Whether you come for the dim sum or the dragon boat races, this is a culturally rich section of Chicago worth exploring.

The University of Chicago has truly shaped the modern world: from its role in defining conceptions of the free market's role in economies, to the development of radiocarbon dating, to the experiment that produced the first nuclear reaction, UOC has ever been at the forefront. Its sociology department was the first of its kind in the United States, it hosts nineteen different sports programs, and is consistently ranked among the top ten universities in the country. On top of all that, the Gothic-styled university is nestled in a stunningly picturesque location in Hyde Park, just steps from the beautiful shores of Lake Michigan.

Ancient Pagoda
The exterior of the water tower is open all day and there are related exhibitions inside. The opening hours are from 10:00 to 18:30, and the holidays are advanced to 16:00. (Local time)
The Old Water Tower is located in the north of Michigan Avenue, next to the John Hancock Center. The Old Water Tower was built in 1869. The entire water tower is a 13th-century European Gothic building that looks more like a miniature castle than a water tower. Today, the old water tower is no longer used to pump water and deliver water, it has become a landmark in Chicago.
