Time to conquer your fear of Chicago’s incomparable heights. Take a cautious first step by stepping out onto the Skydeck at Willis Tower, Chicago’s highest observation point. Thrillseekers will be more interested in The Ledge, a glass box installed for maximum appreciation of the 1,353-foot view straight down.
If that gets your blood going, why not get a little skydiving in? Experienced fliers, rookies, and even individuals with special needs, can take a couple flights at iFly’s indoor skydiving facility and skip the plane ride.
A day of such thrills only deserves a fine dining experience at the end, so head on up to the Signature Room on the 95th floor of The Building Formerly Known as the John Hancock Center. While a few stories shorter than the Skydeck, the prime real estate position has the best view of the city. (Plus the opportunity to eat a seafood tower while sitting in a sky food tower has to be worth some extra points.)
