John Hancock Center: This iconic building for local, national and international business spaces also holds an observatory where-on a clear day- you can see four different states.
Formerly known as the John Hancock Observatory, 360 Chicago offers dining, sights and an interactive tour far above the city streets. From 1,000 feet up on the 94th floor, you can see up to 55 miles out and four states—you'll feel as if you're along for the ride as you watch airplanes whiz by. A recent addition is the Tilt attraction, which allows visitors to step onto an enclosed platform that extends from the building at a 30 degree angle.

I am not a native Chicagoan but this is absolutely my top pick. I love the morning view when I can imagine waking up together with the city. I'm also amazed by the late afternoon view when I could see the golden sunset. This is the place that I am enchanted to be.
The John Hancock has one of my absolute favorite views of the city. In addition to a full 360 view, they also have Tilt, which allows you to experience the view in an incredible way. Tilt has you see the city through a glass wall that tilts you over the city. Takes some guts but is definitely worth it. If you haven't been to 360, you're missing out.
