You can't visit Seattle without experiencing the Space Needle. The price for meals was a little expensive, but well worth the price. The view and the experience of the revolving restaurant was part of an overall great experience.

Go early to avoid the lines! Great view of the city. Massive gift shop, of course. Take the monorail there, cheap and fast, no worries on parking.

The Space Needle is one of those attractions that you must see when visiting Seattle for the first time or with friends and family. The people are knowledgeable that work there and the view from the observation deck are great for pictures. It is always best to visit when it isn't raining, but even then, depending on the weather, you... More

Along with ALL the other tourists....you should still go. My trip had perfect weather and you could see along way. Not cheap tho. With a ride on the monorail and the trip up the space needle, you will part with $70.00. There is a restaurant at the top that needs a reservation...for sure! Bring alot of money for that too....

The Space Needle consists of an elevator ride to the top of the 600 foot "Needle", a 360 degree viewing platform outside which gives amazing views of Seattle and the bay, and a small coffee shop inside the top of the needle. Simple, but enjoyable.

Very interesting history, obviously a great view, definitely something the kids will remember. We used the city pass tickets so combined several attractions for less than what they would have cost separately.

Some things to keep in mind with Seattle: Traffic and Parking. It would help you to try to schedule a visit when things are less busy at the Needle area. There is a stadium nearby with events going on.

It is the main attraction of Seattle. The observation deck is great to take pictures for Seattle. You can see the whole Seattle area from this place. Once you get into the elevator, you will get a brief explanation about the Space Needle. Down at the entrance there is a big gift shop and a great garden to spend sometime... More
