Weekdays tend to be less crowded compared to weekends, making it easier to navigate the observation deck and enjoy the stunning views of the city skyline and Lake Michigan. Aim to visit before 10am to beat the crowd. 

However, if you don’t mind the crowds then the best time to visit 360 Chicago is right before sunset. Catching the sunset from the observation deck will be an experience you won’t forget anytime soon. 

For a quieter experience, consider visiting during spring or fall, when tourist numbers are lower compared to the peak summer season. The winter months are also a good time to visit, when temperatures drop and snowfall is common. Visiting during winter can offer a unique experience of seeing the city covered in snow and potentially fewer crowds.
