A great view over Chicago
John Hancock Observatory Deck is at 875 North Michigan Avenue in Chicago and is open from 9am to 11pm daily. It is best to head up on a clear day to ensure good visibility across the lake.

Once you head in to the foyer, there is a lift on the right that goes straight up to the 96th floor where it is free entry. You can enjoy a coffee for around $5 at a seat near the window (instead of $15 entry to go to the lower floor). There are also cocktails for around $15 if you feel like a drink. It can get crowded at times, but a bit of patience will get you a seat near the window, and it is also a great photo opportunity.

The views look South towards The Loop and east across Lake Michigan.
