I spent a weekend in Chicago, Illinois. While I was in town I visited the Willis Tower. The view from the Willis Tower is absolutely amazing.
The Willis Tower
The Willis Tower, used to be called the Sears Tower. It is a 108-story skyscraper right in the middle of downtown. The Willis Tower is the second-tallest building in the United States and the 14th-tallest in the world. As I ascended to the top floor. The elevator attendant gave a brief history of the Willis Tower. Once at the top I was given headphones where I could do a guided tour of each window. The guided tour would tell you where landmarks were and give a brief history of Chicago. The view from the top was absolutely amazing. The view spanned up to four states.
The Willis Tour had a feature called the Skydeck. Where you could step out onto a glass balcony that extended four feet outside of the 103rd floor. You could look through the glass floor and see the street underneath you. The ledge of the Skydeck is made of 1,500 pound glass panels. Each balcony is comprised of three layers of half-inch thick glass. If you read about my trip to Canada, the CN Tower had a similar feature.
If you’re ever in Chicago. I highly recommend you go to the Willis Tower. The view from the Willis Tower is absolutely amazing. There is no better view of the Chicago skyline. I hope you enjoyed reading this blog post. If you have any questions please comment down below.
