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.

Much like all "view attractions," 360 is a $20 instagram photo. I'm a native Chicagoan and had never been so we stopped by on a Sunday afternoon and it was really beautiful. It's essentially a high-rise gift shop with spectacular views. I probably wouldn't pay to go again (I say probably because a Winter cityscape may be worth it) but it was a fun daytime spot.

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.

Love this place! Every time my out of state fam & friends visit Chicago for the first time, I always recommend this place. Can't beat the amazing 360 degree view of our lovely city and honestly, the admission fee is not that much. As mentioned before, Chicago residents get half off. I also tried the Tilt for another fee of $7. It was crazy scary but fun! Well, I'm scared of heights so there. :) Advice: Get a drink from the bar before doing the Tilt. ;)

This is not a tourist only spot. 360 Chicago boasts gorgeous 360 views of the entire city and lake front and the Tilt, a chance to dangle 1000 feet above the city behind double pane glass. Nervous? Catch a drink at the quaint Architect bar on the same level. Signature Room ain't the only sexy Mag Mile option anymore! 360 Chicago may lure you in more often too with weekly photog night, DJs, architecture tours and sunset cocktail toasts. Bonus: Currently 606 zip code residents get half off admission and vets get in free for Memorial Day weekend.

The Hancock offers some of the best views of the city and on a clear day you can see for miles in every direction. The new(ish) Tilt adds a whole other element of fun to 360, but for the absolute best views head up to the Signature Lounge.
