Enjoy panoramic views of Seattle and the surrounding water from 184 m (605 ft) in the air at Space Needle. A symbol of the city since it was built for the World’s Fair in 1962, the tower features a 360º observation deck. Ride the elevator to the top for unobstructed views of the Olympic and Cascade Mountains, Elliott Bay, and the surrounding islands, before stopping for a meal at the rotating SkyCity restaurant. Take a jacket with you when visiting the tower, as the observation deck is known for windy conditions.

    The Space Needle is a cool place to go and get a great view of Seattle! It is over priced, $30 for adults. Once up there you can view from inside and outside observation deck but that's about it.  more »

    Opens at 8AM. No lines. Unobstructed views with very few other tourists around. Done in 30 minutes. A bit pricey.  more »

    It was a beautiful experience to see my granddaughter's appreciation of a bird's eye view of Seattle. It was a time of personal reflection for me as I recalled the televised images that I remember fro...  more »

    Absolute Must see for Visiting to Seattle. The restaurant is fabulous it spins around and gives a fantastic view. It was an incredible breakfast! It was a full 3 course meal. Service was great. You could feel the sway that day we were up there. I would highly recommend to visiting parties!

    Spectacular views of the city and great for getting some fabulous photos of downtown Seattle and the area. It was a little expensive for me as the Canadian dollar was low at the time, but well worth it. The ticket machines were not working properly the day that I was there and the line up to the ticket office was long and moved fairly slowly. Be sure to get your picture taken at the top and emailed to you by the staff. It is a great Facebook post.

    A "must see" if visiting the Seattle area. IMO, with it's space-age, art deco design, it's probably the most attractive observation tower in the USA! Beautifully designed inside and out, but of course, the best part is the view from the top. Like many towers, both interior and exterior observation areas are provided. Great gift shop at the bottom. Overall, a highly recommended experience.

    The food was excellent. The service was great. We were treated well even though we were grubby from a 2 day train ride and a walk in the sculpture garden. The waiter even brought "smoking ice cream" for my daughter. The views were phenomenal. Prices were high, but for us it was a once in a lifetime experience.

    Amazing views, but waits can be long. Plan time to get down too, because the line for the elevator down is long too. Get the City Pass and you can go up twice -- once at day & once at night! The pictures are stunning, but FYI if you want to be able to see the mountains in the distance, make sure you come well before sunset because they disappear quickly.

Where to stay in Seattle

Famous for its architecture, Seattle's downtown area features a range of lodging options, including high-end hotels offering expensive rooms with views over Elliott Bay. Remember that despite their prices, many hotels in this waterfront district provide rather small rooms. If you need more space but don't want to break the bank, head out of downtown to some of the city's outlying neighborhoods. Seattle's diverse suburbs offer affordable bed and breakfasts, providing you with all the comforts of home and allowing you to see what local life is really like.
