It is a thrill to see and feel the cars moving beneath you as you stand on the bridge above them, and of course, this is an amazing spot for an unobstructed view of Chicago’s skyline.

The walkway along the water is an ideal spot for a view of the entire skyline over Lake Michigan.

In addition, Castaways, which is nearby, is a lakeside bar and restaurant has an amazing rooftop, where you can eat and take in the views of the lake and the cityscape.

If you’re looking for more places with good food and a view, try the J. Parker Restaurant at the Lincoln Hotel Rooftop.

Day or night, this rooftop bar and restaurant is another wonderful option to sit and marvel at the skyline while also enjoying food and drinks.  With its retractable roof, the J. Parker is open all year long.
