Chicago's skyscraper star (that tall, dark one in the middle) used to be called Sears Tower. When Miss Iggy came to visit last September 2009, it bore a new name: Willis Tower. It stands 1,450 feet and 110 stories high and claims to be the "tallest building in the western hemisphere."
Tourists can conquer the Willis Tower by climbing its Skydeck, where you get an aerial view of Chicago (and see how straight and flat its landscape is), plus get to know its history and all that jazz!
