Just took a weekend trip to Chicago: walked the Magnificent Mile; saw the Old Water Tower & had drinks in the Signature Room of the Hancock Tower. The Signature Room had wonderful views and there is no fee to go up. Of course, the drinks & snacks are not inexpensive. The Old Water Tower was built in 1869 and was one of a few buildings to survive the Great Chicago Fire in 1871. Water Tower Place is an upscale shopping location.
