Hancock Tower

Chicago-2729 by you.

The next day we started out from our hotel & headed up the Magnificent Mile for some fabulous shopping en route to Hancock Tower. There is a very cool old water tower right in the shadow of the mammoth building.

I'd heard the views are actually better from here than the Sears Tower & I was not disappointed! Especially with such beautiful weather & everybody outside enjoying the summer.

I was absolutely amazed and fascinated by all the rooftop pools.

Chicago-2760 by you.

We could see the Old Navy Pier, and of course put that on our list of sites to see before we left town.

I wouldn't have guessed there was an actual beach, with sand and sunbathers even, in Chicago!

I love the big bend in the lake front & the pocket beach it forms.

Fun with my super-zoom lens.

All the skyscrapers were amazing & just kept going and going.

What cool little terraces on this building.

Looking back towards the main area of downtown it's quite obvious that Chicago is a very special city.

We went to see Avatar in IMAX, but the line was too long so we went to get pizza instead. Maybe next week!
