Willis Tower (former Sears Tower) Highly Recommended Highly Recommended Highly Recommended : Michelin's recommendations

Bibendum
Tallest building in the world for over 20 years, this 110-story feat of engineering cuts an unmistakable profile on the city's skyline. Though its formal name changed from the Sears Tower to Willis Tower in 2009, the structure still holds the title of world's tallest building to the tips of its antennae, and it remains—so far—the tallest building in the US. It may also be the deepest. The tower is composed of nine rectangular tubes resting on more than 100 steel and concrete caissons anchored into the bedrock hundreds of feet below ground. These 75-foot-high bundled tubes provide maximum resistance to high winds.

    Pros

    Même si ce n'est plus la plus haute tour du monde, la vue du Skydeck est impressionnante. La région étant relativement plate, on peut voir à plusieurs dizaines de kilomètres aux alentours par ciel clair. Pour les amateurs de frisson, marcher dans la "glass box" est impressionnant.
