    The water tower place is a great place to shop with many floors and stores to check out! They have a big food court and the lego store is fun to check out too so go see for yourself!

    I've been going to Water Tower ever since I was young. I'm still mesmerized by the glass elevator. The Foodlife is a food court that accommodates all taste buds. The Water Tower is great fun for all.

    One stop shopping. Great to be able to get what you need in one place. Great for the winter months and families where people want to do multiple things. Elevator is slow. Escalators take awhile too

    Not a large variety of stores, but there is pretty much everything you need. Macy's, Starbucks, Lush, Victoria Secret, Sephora and a ton of food. Try the Chicago style pizza at Foodlife on the first

    The kind man working at the food court, cooking stir fry, was extremely generous and offered my meal on the house after I had to go back twice and ask the front desk for a different card that worked:)

    For a mall, this place has one of the best food courts, which is located on the mezzanine. The variety is great and worth the visit on their own merit.

    859 feet tall, 74 stories. Floor after floor of shopping - and don't stop until you get to 7 ... lots of places to eat and snack up there. More stories on Water Tower Place:

    Water Tower is a great location for lunch because of its selection.I would argue that the shops in this specific location are sub par compared to the mass amount of competition among Michigan Avenue.

    Fountains by the escalators in the front are a tourist attraction - if you want faster access to the shops take the elevators on the back side of the mall. Oh yeah, and follow us on Twitter @RackedChi

    Nice mall. My favorite stores Adidas & Lego. Well located if you're sightseeing, just next door is the Hancock Center

    Definitely worth eating at Foodease instead of Foodlife. You can build your own plate & take things to go. Better selection in my opinion!

    This is a great place to escape from school. Even if you don't want to buy anything, it is a great atmosphere. TIP: check for sales!

    Have a great meal at FoodLife to take a break from shopping. The concept is expansive, so everyone should get what they want.

    The Wow Bao in this mall serves frozen yogurt. Delicious frozen yogurt. Get some and check in there too because they love social media at the Bao.

    Very cool mall with many stories and awesome stores. The glass elevators are awesome but very slow.

    If you're not using a stroller or have someone with mobility issues, consider using the escalators instead of the elevators. This mall's elevators are extremely slow and overused.
