    I really enjoyed the view from the Space Needle. Cheesy, yes, but the day was clear, and being so high up you could see Mt Ranier, and the islands of Puget Sound looked so peacful and quite, you could see for miles. It was great!!
    there is also a restaurant at the top(requires reservations)

    If you have the $11 US to shell out, I recommend going up to the Space Needle. The 360' view is spectacular and helps you get familiarized with the city and all its districts. But, if $11 is too much, I recommend goin to the top of the Bank of America tower located on Cherry Ave. and 5th in downtown- it's half the price compared to the Space Needle and has just as a spectacular view! Also a must see is Pike Place Market. Stroll all the fun and amusing shops with all sorts of wares, crafts, flowers, food from all over the globe, and I can't forget to mention the freshest seafood available in town. Beware of flying fish overhead while you're there!

    When visiting Seattle, you must spend at least half a day riding the monorail from Westlake Mall to the Pacific Science Center, and then go to the Space Needle Center for lunch or just enjoying the views of Seattle from above the ground. If you have lunch at the Space Needle, make sure you stay at least 1 hour. That will allow you to see 360 degrees view of Seatle. The top rotates one complete revolution in 60 minutes. If you are a baseball fan and happen to visiting Seattle during the season, try to catch a Mariner baseball game in the recent built out door stadium, Safeco field.
    It was the world attraction architecture building in 1962. You can see the needle in the fore ground from the above picture.

    Space Needle. This is the large tower featured in nearly every picture of Seattle as it is a symbol of the city. It was built for the 1962 World's Fair. You can find out more info on their website.
    On a nice day you can get an incredible view of Seattle and the surrounding countryside. You can take the monorail from the Westlake Shopping Center to the area where the Needle is.

  • Space Needle at Night

    by Looneydame Written Jul 21, 2006
    I swear, the Space Needle is in there somewhere

    Don't try to take a picture of the Space Needle from a moving vehicle!

    But definitely visit it at night if you get the chance. You can't beat the view of the Seattle skyline.

    Space Needle

    This is the unmistakable symbol of Seattle. Although a bit pricey to go to the top this is a definitive must see sight for the fantastic views of Seattle it offers.

    Inside Observation Deck

    Space Needle

    Here's the inside observation deck at the Space Needle. I suppose it's a good place to be if it's windy or cold. There are also informational displays of the surrounding viewpoints.

    You simply can't visit Seattle without going to the space needle. Take in the view of the city from the top.

    I decided I'd go up in the space needle. You certainly can see Seattle. The ride up in a glass front elevator is like an amusement park ride.

    I believe the tower was built for the Seattle world's fare in 1962, measuring 184 meters it towers Seattle and provides you with a great view of the city and the sound.
