Most Photographed Places In Chicago.
Let’s talk honestly if you don’t have the cliche pictures where all the tourists have their pictures taken, no one would believe that you have traveled that place.
The first thing I do before planning a trip to a city or national park, I go through the pictures of that place on Instagram. In a way it’s helpful, as it gives me guidance to what all places to visit.
So after being in Chicago for 4 years and shooting pictures for a while, I give you the most photographed places in the city of Chicago.
1. The Bean (Cloud Gate)
The iconic Cloud Gate sculpture in Millennium Park is a sight to see but also great for photo opportunities. The highly reflective hammered metal that covers the sculpture mirrors the images of Chicago’s cityscape and sky. Even though this
2. SKYDECK CHICAGO
Willis Tower, 233 S. Wacker Dr.
Willis Tower offers the thrilling Skydeck Chicago, where guests (if they dare) can step out onto the enclosed glass platform (The Ledge) that extends past the building to offer a stomach dropping view straight down (all 1,353 feet or 103 floors) to the bustling streets below. The new lunch room is the perfect place to plan a midday meal for your group, where Chicago specialties (think: stuffed crust pizza and Chicago-style hot dogs) are paired with amazing views.
3. 360 Observatory Center
875 N. Michigan Ave.
Formerly John Hancock Observatory, 360CHICAGO is a sky-high vantage point located 1,000 feet above the city, offering 360-degree views, just steps from The Magnificent Mile. After groups have taken some dramatic photographs of the city below, take them to the 94th floor for bite to eat at the new Architect’s Corner café and bar. Group rates are available for 20 people or more
America’s first planetarium continues to inspire the next generation of space explorers… and onlookers vying to capture THE BEST skyline ‘gram.
Instagrammers have spoken. All your ridiculous cute couple OR pondering solo (but are you really solo?) photos with the skyline in the backdrop must be taken here. Or if your volleyball team wants a group shot before hitting up the bar… that’s OK, too.
Does it count if a drone takes your pic? Because you can get a pretty nice boat shot from above.
Don’t worry if you don’t have a drone, the view from the dock is pretty sick too!!
