Highly recommend if you are planning to visit the museums, John Hancock Observatory, and/or Sears tower.

Reduce the lines with a CityPASS! We did the math if you are going to all the places CityPass offers it's a better value with extra services you'd play even more for at the venue. Best part, busy places, have CityPASS lines that save you TIME! It was a very good value. BTW, do the Sears Tower, aka Willis, early in the morning!

We have now used City Pass in Tampa, New York City, and Chicago and couldn't be happier with how it works. Saves a bunch of money for our family of 4 and we get to see all the sites we were planning on anyway. Highly recommend this to travelers with kids who love a good tourist stop!
