You can get good views of the Chicago skyline from Navy Pier. Here you can see the John Hancock Center against the sky.
Well, visit the Hancock Observatory, at 1000 feet how high do you want? Marvellous views on a clear day, unbelievably cold outside on the skywalk!
Trink a coctail at about 4 p.m. or have a lunch...
Try Chicago's Signature Punch - it costs $12 (with tax and tip), but it's really worth it.
John Hancock Center
The most recognizable Chicago high-rise, and the world's tallest mixed-use building. It is Chicago's 3rd tallest building and has an open air observatory.
My oldest boy got a kick out of looking at the view from the John Hancock Building on Michigan Avenue. The view from the Sears Tower would probably be similar.
Another view of the city.
That's the John Hancock Tower, the black building in the far left background.
Go to the bar at the top of the John Hancock building.
It's free and the view is fabulous.
The John Hancock building gives you a great view of the city and the lake.
Go to the bar on the 96th floor of the Hancock building instead of the observatory. Spend your $10 on a drink or an appetizer.
Beautiful views of the city in all directions.
Take a break from your busy shopping on the Michigan Ave. Take the elevator from Hancock building to 96th floor and have a drink with a spectacular view.
Visit the John Hancock Tower ... this is the outside view of the tower
