    "The Willis Tower used to be known as The Sears Tower. They changed the name after people kept showing up in the lobby trying to buy washing machine and ratchet sets." - Conan O'Brien

    1,451 feet tall. If you're brave enough, the skydeck is amazing. You literally feel like you're floating on top of the world. For more stories mentioning the Willis Tower, go to http://trib.in/ogoEOZ

    A series of magnificently scary glass boxes, collectively known as the Ledge, is attached to the venerable Skydeck, where you’ll feel like you’re standing unsupported 103 stories above the ground. Read more

    go towards the end of the evening on a weekday: we were there 830p on a thursday and there were no lines. as scary as it is, standing out in the glass ledge makes for a great photo, esp at night

    Awesome building. A must see for anyone.

  • Teresa B.

    Even if you live in Chicago it's time to go back for a visit. The Ledge is awesome! It's fun watching grown men try to get the nerve to step out and little kids are laying on the glass with no fear! Read more

    The tallest building in the U.S. at 110 stories, the former Sears Tower was the tallest building in the world until 2008. – Green Guide Editor

    Go to the Sears Tower (real Chicagoans will ALWAYS call it that) and go up to The Ledge on the 103rd floor and get a fantastic photo taken by an awesome employee from Photogenic!

    Try Market Creations on the 2nd floor up the escalator, it's a reasonably priced buffet and they lots of good food, including some great sushi! Decent window view too.

    On a clear day, you can see 4 states from the skydeck at the Willis tower: Indiana, Michigan, Wisconsin and Illinois.

    Go to the top, go to the ledge, look straight down, shit your pants...go home, get changed, then go back at night...no metropolis panorama like it

    The glass ledge is UNBELIEVABLE! One of the coolest places in Chicago for sure.

    Totally worth the wait in line. Fantastic view! Free wifi in most places.

    Your dumb if you pay $17.50 to look out of a damn window!

    News agencies and tourist info will try to convince you this is the Willis Tower. Any Chicagoan knows better.

    Dave G. · November 9, 2010
  • Jared P.

    Don't think you HAVE to get your souvenirs at the top of the tower. There is a LOT more stuff in the two shops you pass through at the bottom.

    Do you have the courage to go out on the ledge? Stand on the ledge and look straight down nearly 100 floors! Give it a try! Read more

    There is no "Willis Tower"

    Sears sold the building took their resources and money out of downtown and went to suburbs. They should not have naming rights. Willis however, supports the City of Chicago by leasing space here.

    As a native Chicagoan this will always be Sears Tower. Check out observary deck and step onto outer glass for a cool view down

    Sufjan Stevens wrote, "In the tower above the earth, There is a view that reaches far, Where we see the universe." He also spelled "Sears" as "Seer's," but who's keeping score?

    They should change the name to United Tower

    Nothing beats the view of Chicago than the top of this building!

    Willis beats the pants off Sears for the lobby art collection. Also caffeine stations & wifi on 3/4 corners although they close early. The art adds. Quiet enough & stately for informal meetings.

    JunoWallet for the iPhone gives you gift cards for bars and restaurants in Chicago and all over the planet...I love it and you will too...

    The view from the 103rd floor is breath taking. It's well worth the price of admission. I went late (7:30pm) and saw the twilight skyline and the night view was spectacular.

    If you're going to do only one thing here, please let it be the glass balconies... unless you're terrified of heights. A great view of the city and an excellent photo-op.

    It's always colder around this building, umbrellas don't stand a chance when it's raining!
