Formerly known as the John Hancock Observatory, the observation deck has been rebranded as 360 Chicago in an effort to advertise its 360-degree view of the city from the 94th floor of the John Hancock Center. Added last year, interactive screens help you understand what you're looking at. On a clear day, you can see the three bordering states of Wisconsin, Michigan, and Indiana.
Along with the rebranding will come a small spring cleaning of the concourse area where guests access the elevators as well as a sprucing up of the observation deck. There is currently an opened-aired "skywalk" that lets you view the city outdoors, but it will be closing as the renovations are completed this April.
Daytime makes sense to make the trek to the top, but looking at the photos, we think nighttime could be very rewarding as well!
