$18 entrance up the tower included free audio/video tour showing you the areas and buildings of note in and around the city. Good to say you've been up the tower but won't fill much time

Be sure you get the monitor that explains about the amazing views. There is no extra charge and it was very informative. It was overcast and rainy when we were there but it must be beautiful on a sunny day.

I could not do it! I dare you to try and step out on the glass, and then look down. This it a good place to see far and wide. The information headphones gave us some excellent stories about the city. I would return ~
