Soaring 1,000 feet over legendary Michigan Avenue is one of the city’s most unique attractions: 360 CHICAGO. Located on the 94th floor of the John Hancock Center, 360 CHICAGO (formerly John Hancock Observatory) offers breathtaking views of Chicago’s skyline, lakefront, and four neighboring states. It’s also the only place you can enjoy TILT, Chicago’s highest moving experience. This one-of-a-kind marvel tilts guests out from the 94th floor providing the most thrilling views of the city. Add to that their interactive learning displays and neighborhoods exhibit, as well as audio tours in seven languages, and there’s no better way to experience the city!
