360 Chicago – a Unique Attraction Near Chicago’s Gold Coast
Chicago is famous for many things: deep-dish pizza, uniquely topped hot dogs, and beloved sports teams, to name a few. Something else on the running list of what makes our metropolis so special? The spectacular Chicago skyline.
Chicago is ripe with world-renowned architecture, and the river gliding through downtown reflects the skyline’s dignified beauty. When the light hits just right, the water sparkles off the sides of our skyscrapers like diamonds. Walk around on a gloriously sunny day, and you’ll see just what we mean.
The Willis Tower (formerly Sears Tower) might be one of our biggest celebrities, but 875 N Michigan Ave, commonly known as the John Hancock Building, is just as stately and offers absolute must-see experiences ꟷ starting with the Observation Deck.
How to get to 360 Chicago Observation Deck
at 875 N Michigan
Head up to the 94th floor (1,000 feet above ground) for an unforgettable 360° perspective of Chicago. There are also high-definition interactive touch screens to compliment your view and highlight Chicago’s history, culture, and architecture. It’s 17,000 square feet of space to wander and explore, wide-eyed.
For our thrill seekers: the TILT experience on the 94th floor offers a unique, downward-facing view of the city 1,000 feet below to make your heart skip more than a beat. This attraction is the first of its kind in the world – and must be seen to be believed. If you’re excited by the prospect but terrified to try it yourself, there’s also a virtual version to experience online.
Additionally, there are two fantastic dining options at 875 N. Michigan to choose from: the Signature Room on the 95th floor for a more formal affair and the Lounge on the 96th, which focuses on small bites and cocktails.
Whichever you select, there’s no other view in Chicago that can match the top floors of the Hancock. – it even makes locals feel like tourists! The view spans across Lake Michigan, the city skyline and beyond; this is what you’re paying for when you dine at the John Hancock Building.
The John Hancock Building is located at 875 N. Michigan Avenue in the Gold Coast.
