We reserved to have breakfast on the skydeck and it was well worth the money! It was only us and 2 other tables that had the whole skydeck to ourselves! The food was amazing, the view was amazing, and the service was super nice!!!

I would recommend buying the City Pass to beat the queues, but the Skydeck at Willis is an absolute must. Make sure you go into the glass boxes for a great photo opportunity.

Downtown / The Loop
Often visitors' first stop in Chicago, The Loop is a
good starting point to sample the city's energy and
flavor. This central business district boasts
Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier
shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep
your camera busy for hours. You won’t find too many
photo galleries of downtown Chicago without a shot of

No. Just walk down to the ticketing area. There could be a wait if it's busy. I last went in the early morning around 9 or 10 and there was no line.
