- See Chicago’s iconic skyline illuminated by night
- An entirely different take on the Windy City
It was in Chicago - the Windy City - where in 1884 the world’s first skyscraper was built, the
Home Insurance Building. While at a modest 10 stories it was a pipsqueak by today’s
standards, it set the stage for a building boom that has never stopped, transforming
Chicago’s skyline into one of America’s most distinctive. Four of America’s eight tallest
buildings are here, including the Willis Tower which is among the tallest skyscrapers in the
world. Take a stylish night-time helicopter flight above Chicago, and see these historic
landmarks lit-up, an entirely different experience to day-time.
Seeing the Windy City by day is impressive enough, but after dark its doubly so. A helicopter
sightseeing tour is stylish, comfortable and safe, and will allow you superb views that you
definitely can’t even imagine from ground level. It’s a perfect treat for visitors, locals, or
anyone with a reason to celebrate. We especially recommend this trip during the winter,
when the city is all lit-up with the seasonal decorations but let’s be honest, it’s pretty special
any time of year.
