Sears Tower in Chicago, IL

2007-07-20 looking down from Sears Tower

This is my oldest son, who wasn’t sure he wanted to go up in the Sears Tower.  (He was most fearful of the elevator ride.)  Once we got up, however, he was interested in seeing everything. Living on the prairie as we do, the highest he’d been before was probably Hermann Monument.  So not only did he want to see the views, he wanted to see what this tall building was all about and tried to look straight down.

    Your picture reminded me of the tower in Aukland, NZ has a thick clear plastic panel you can stand on and look straight down. My kids could do it easily but my vertigo really kicked in.

    We skipped this sight on our recent trip to Chicago… Chicago is such an interesting city architecturally that I bet I’d love that view though… maybe I’ll squeeze in some time during BlogHer
