Seattle's signature monument, the Space Needle (originally called “The Space Cage”) rises 605 feet/184 meters above Seattle, and was once the tallest structure west of the Mississippi River. The tower takes advantage of its 520-foot/158-meter high observation deck, which provides superb views of the city and its environs. The Space Needle should be a first-stop on first visit to Seattle, as it can help you orient yourself to the city.

On clear days, you can zip to the top of the Space Needles on the elevators (43 seconds) for excellent views of downtown, Lake Union, Mount Rainier, and the Olympic Range mountains way across Puget Sound. Once on top, take in the views then check out the interpretive displays, which identify more than 60 sites and activities in the Seattle area; you can even zoom in on them through high-powered telescopes. 

For a real treat, reserve a table at the Space Needle's revolving restaurant, SkyCity. True, it may be a pricey dinner, but the views and the free ride up the elevator are a real bonus. 

Practical Info

The Space Needle is located in Seattle Center, just northwest of downtown. Seattle Center is a major cultural and entertainment park, which is also home to Experience Music Project (EMP), the Science Fiction Museum, the Pacific Science Center, the Seattle Children's Museum, and the Seattle Children's Theatre. You can get to the Space Needle by bus or monorail.
