No View Like It: The Ledge at the Sky Deck

Large arrow left

I wasn't sure what to expect going to the Skydeck and the view really did surpass any expectation I had. Wow! Seriously. I think this is my favourite photo from my trip in Chicago.

The Ledge transforms how visitors experience Chicago. At 1,353 feet up, The Ledge’s glass boxes extend out 4.3 feet from the skyscraper’s Skydeck on the 103rd floor, providing never-before-seen views of the city.

Be prepared to take at least a good hour to get up to the Sky Deck. You have to go through lines, ticketing, security check, a cool movie about the history of the Sears Tower and then make your way up on the elevator.

DID YOU KNOW? The inspiration for The Ledge came from hundreds of forehead prints visitors left behind on Skydeck windows every week?

On a sunny day for great photos of your Chicago experience, I highly recommend it.
