The Heights of Chicago

The Heights of Chicago

When you come to Chicago, one of the most talked-about ways to see the city is on one of Shoreline Sightseeing’s boat cruises or architectural tours. After viewing Chicago from the water, be sure to see it from the clouds at the Sky Deck.

100 Floors Above the City

The Skydeck view

There is nothing quite like experiencing Chicago from above. When you visit the Skydeck, you will be amazed at the 100-story view. Walk 360 degrees around the floor to see each corner of the city, getting a completely different view of the Chicago architecture you learned about from a Shoreline architectural boat cruise. If you are daring, you may even take a step out The Ledge, the entirely glass box that extends 4.3 feet from the side of the building on the 103rd floor. That means you will be able to look directly down 1,353 feet to the streets of Chicago.

Museum Quality Experience

First, you will ride in one of the fastest elevators in the city, each of which are multi-media enabled, giving you facts about the building as you soar to the top. Engaging exhibits illustrate the history of the tower and many of the stories from Chicago history and culture. Finally, a theater presentation called “Reaching for the Sky” shares the incredible forward thinking of architects helping rebuild Chicago after the Great Fire.

Once in a Lifetime Special Events

If you want to have a Skydeck experience like no other, the team is pros at accommodating your unique experience. Have flowers delivered to someone special as you arrive at the top to commemorate an important occasion or anniversary. Arrange to propose to your sweetheart, with photographer surreptitiously on hand to capture the occasion. Or, make reservations to have a “Breakfast in the Sky” or “Pie in the Sky” (for dinner) experience before and after hours respectively, giving you special access to the views and the Ledge with significantly fewer patrons around (and a delicious meal to boot!)
