Reviews of Skydeck at the Willis Tower (The Ledge)
I’m afraid of heights, so this isn’t my idea of a way I want to spend my spare time, however, for family members or friends who are not, it’s an amazing view on a nice day and the ledge is a crazy out of body experience, giving you the feeling you’re walking on air over the city. I only peered over my children’s shoulders but they had no problem stepping onto the glass floor and gazing down 40 floors. This is a must for every Chicago visitor.
