Aaron C.Aaron Cruz: Best up-top skyscraper views I've seen. Take the 40-second elevator ride (fast) up to get shots of Lake Michigan, the parks, beaches, lakeshore, skyline & more. Grab a coffee or cocktail up-top!

H H.H H: Best view in Chicago! Get brunch on the 95th and ask to be seated on the water side. Lake Michigan is stunning and tranquil and ahh. You can go to the 96th to grab drinks / apps as well.
