The Ledge | Skydeck Chicago

The Skydeck offers a breathtaking view of the city of Chicago. This is a great opportunity to climb the Willis Tower (formerly Sears Tower), the worlds tallest building from 1974 until 1998, and see the beautiful architecture of the city and its endless views of Lake Michigan. The more adventurous can go to the "The Ledge", the newest acquisition of the Skydeck, allowing the visitor to walk on a glass floor viewing the city in a different perspective. If you like heights, also check out the amazing Edge Walk at the CN Tower, Toronto.
