US Bank Observation Deck – A view & a slide!

I have a fear of heights, but when I am in an enclosed space, I am okay with it. I guess it’s faith in engineering and the endless desire to see my city from different views. While we are not known for our skyscrapers, LA has a growing collection of them in downtown, and foreign investors are gobbling up property and building more of them, as is evident by at least 10 visible cranes at any given moment. Our tallest building is the US Bank Building, and they recently added a reason for visitors to join the thousands of office workers to enter the elevators every day:  an observation deck and a slide.

The 1000-foot observation deck is the tallest outdoor viewing platform in California, with 360-degree views….  from the mountains to the Pacific! But what makes this observation deck stand apart from others? A SLIDE! There is a glass enclosure from the 70th floor to the 69th floor. It was a short ride for me, but nonetheless packed in the thrills because I could see straight to the ground below me. Only one person is allowed at a time and there are no cameras allowed, but they will take a photo for you after your daring slide. I highly recommend this for something different to do!
