    Go early in the morning and wait until it opens. There will be a line to get up. Recommend getting a city pass to avoid lines upstairs

    I don't like heights, but it really wasn't that bad. They cram you into the elevators though. The glass ledge line gets shorter as you move to the left and is at the back of the building.

    A must visit if you're visiting Chicago. If it's a sunny day all of Chicago will go to see the view with. No worries, the lines move quickly.
