The 360 Sky Series will have you returning to 360 Chicago more than once with these exciting, daily activities.

360 Chicago is more than just experiencing Chicago from 1,000 feet above Michigan Avenue. With the 360 Sky Series, six days of your week are covered with fun activities for all types of visitors that add to the always breathtaking views and TILT, Chicago’s highest moving attraction.

Start out your weekday with 360 Tripod Mondays. As the only day of the week where tripods are allowed at 360 Chicago, it is perfect for photography buffs. Set up your tripod,  and capture Chicago’s skylines through the day and night. Just imagine the great long exposures you can capture once Chicago lights up at night. Make sure to share and tag your images on social media with #360TripodMondays for consideration for the year-end photography exhibit. In addition, photographer Nick Ulivieri will lead special photography events.

Dive into the history behind the buildings seen from 360 Chicago on Tuesdays with 360 Sky Guide. Chicago Architecture Foundation docents will be stationed throughout the observatory from 6 p.m.–9 p.m on Tuesdays providing some history and architectural knowledge of 360 Chicago’s views. After you’ve learned a bit, take a crack at painting some cityscapes on Wednesdays with 360 Sky Art. 360 Chicago will provide floor protection and chairs and artists and illustrators are encouraged to bring an easel, canvas, and supplies and capture the views.

If you want to get an early start on the weekend don’t miss 360 Hoppy Hour. Presented by Revolution Brewing, from 5:30 p.m–8:30 p.m. 360 Chicago will be offering local craft beer specials, special tastings of new Revolution beers, board games, big-screen TVs, and music from a DJ.

Stretch in Saturdays with 360 Sky Yoga. This one-hour class serves all skill levels and is led by a professional instructor. You no longer have to be tied down to studios where you’re staring into a mirror. Now you can give your sun salutations to all of Chicago. The class size is limited, starts at 9:30 a.m., and requires pre-registration at 360chicago.com/360-sky-yoga.

End the week with 360 Sunday Funday. This family friendly day not only offers half-price admission for children from 9 a.m.–4 p.m., but from 1 p.m.–3 p.m. Myster AJ will be showing off his magic skills, and there will be storytelling from Super Epic Story Time.
