John Hancock Center
The John Hancock Center is located in the heart of Chicago along the bustling shopping streets of the Magnificent Mile. Built in 1967, this 344 m above ground, 100-story skyscraper was the second tallest building in the United States when it was completed. Today, it is the fifth tallest building in Chicago, but its massive exterior and high-rise observation deck attract people, making it a popular tourist attraction along with the Willis Tower to the southwest.
Chicago, Illinois, located on the shores of Lake Michigan, is one of the largest cities in the United States. Known as the birthplace of the skyscraper, its buildings, both old and new and unique, attract the attention of tourists. A typical trip here is to admire the city, which is called a museum of architecture, from various vantage points, such as a cruise ship on the Chicago River or from an observation deck in a skyscraper. The city is also famous as a cultural city with many museums and as a center of music, including the blues.
