Skydeck Chicago view of 875 North Michigan Ave & Trump Tower

The best (or second best) view in all of Chicago! 103 floors up, there's no place taller or more photogenic to capture shots of the Loop. During a foggy day, it's barely crowded on this sky deck and you may even get lucky enough to have the place to yourself.

This image of Downtown Chicago was taken from Skydeck Chicago, which is on the 103rd floor of the Willis Tower. The entrance to the Skydeck is on Jackson Blvd, between Wacker Dr and Franklin St. Once you're in the building, you'll take the elevator down and go through Security. Then, another set of elevators will take you directly up to the 103rd Floor. Do a quick walkthrough of the space to get your bearings. You're going to want to be standing on the north east corner of the floor to capture this shot. By subway: - Closest station: Quincy (Brown, Orange, Pink or Purple Lines) - Head north toward W Adams St - Turn left onto W Adams St - Turn left onto S Franklin St Address: Skydeck Chicago 233 S Wacker Dr, Chicago, IL 60606
