“One of the most famous places to visit in Chicago, IL is the Hancock Building on Michigan Avenue located downtown. There is an observation deck on the 96th floor of the building. If you are not looking to spend your money on admission to have a beautiful view, you can simply visit the Signature Room, a restaurant and bar one floor down for a drink or a bite. The view is at least as good as on the 96th floor and you get to sip on your favorite cocktail.”
