The Chicago skyline is easily one of the most iconic cityscapes in the world. So if you're going to take a trip to Chicago, it makes sense that you'd want to grab the perfect city shot while you're there.

If you love to get up high, the Skydeck at Willis Tower, 360 Chicago Observation Deck, and the Ferris Wheel at Navy Pier are all great options (as long as you don't mind spending a bit of money). For the best free views, check out points such as in front of Adler Planetarium, the Nature Boardwalk at Lincoln Park Zoo, and Cindy's Rooftop (though the drinks aren't cheap while you're there). Without further ado, here's 7 spots you just can't miss for the picture Chicago skyline photo.
