Completed in 1974, the 108-storey Willis Tower (formerly Sears Tower) remained the tallest building in the World until 2010, when it was succeeded by Dubai’s Burj Khalifa.
The normal views from the Skydeck observation platform on the 103rd floor of the Willis Tower are simply magnificent. I mean, how often do you get to look down on skyscrapers without the aid of some kind of aircraft?!
Yet you can take the thrill of being so high a step further (pun intended), by walking out onto The Ledge. This knee-wobbling attraction consists of four retractable glass boxes, each of which can be rolled out to form a balcony jutting four feet from the side of the building.
From one of these boxes the view to the side is of your friends, suspended 1353 feet above the street, atop one of the highest skyscrapers in the World.
