It was a good call visiting the Willis Tower (or Sears Tower, depending on how much of Chicago you have in you) last Friday after dark. Not only did I get to see a beautiful nightscape like this:
BUT THERE WERE ALSO BASICALLY NO LINES!
Not long ones, at least. It felt so good to just walk through the near-empty maze of cues and actually having some breathing room in the elevators. Gosh I felt like a genius picking this time. I remember the what, 2-hour long wait to go up during the day the first time I went, and I felt so grateful to not have to experience that again. Look how gloriously empty it was:
However, there were still lines to go onto the Skydeck glass box/ledge. My friends and I got a few hurried pics in before the testy tourists behind us forced us out or something…
We tried to take a picture of us standing on top of the glass. But a) glass was blurry and b) I only snapped this ONE PHOTO because of aforementioned testy tourists. So here was the end result:
I already shared a photo of downtown Chicago seen from the Skydeck, but here’s more from the same level (110th floor, I believe):
This was my friend Liz’s um, interesting concept of the Gateway Arch meeting Willis Tower:
One final group pic, and we’re out to eat Giordano’s deep dish pizza.
Recommendation to Giordano’s was all thanks to my Chicago friend who would be willing to pay to ship this stuff from Chicago to Texas after moving away from the Windy City. As a deep-dish lover myself, this was absolutely divine.
Wouldn’t you agree with me that Chicago at night is beautiful? Where else have you seen fantastic night views?
Thanks for reading!
P.S. I’m all about cities’ night views. Here I am in NYC. Bonus if I’m 10+ stories high.
