Ask any one person to name a landmark of Seattle and they're most likely to give you the Space Needle as an answer. It's iconic Seattle, and for that reason alone it is worth seeing up close, even if you don't take the trip up top as it can be a bit pricey. A nice little area outside of the... More

I really thought this would be a tourist trap and was only going because my 11 year old daughter wanted to make the trip to the top, but I must say the view was fantastic. We were lucky to visit on an exceptionally clear morning and the view of Mt. Ranier was incredible. It was worth the time - and... More

We went to the space needle and the glass garden the same morning. We purchased the combo ticket to save money. They are right next door to each other so made it very easy. The morning we went there was no line. We purchased the tickets outside the play the kiosk and went straight up to the door. There was... More

Quick ride to the top of the tower. We went in the day time, but for a little more you can go up twice in a 24hour period, so you can go up in the day and again at night. The views were great on this day. We were able to see snow covered mountains in the distance and beautiful... More

I was surprised at how much I enjoyed this. I especially appreciated the vintage photos and mid-century modern vibe of the exhibit as you queue to go into the elevators. In fact, the line was moving way too fast to properly enjoy it. Up on top, the views are amazing, especially of Mount Rainier and Puget Sound, of course. Lots... More

Space Needle is the best observatory in Seattle, I think. It has the greatest view with a location just north of downtown. I actually visited there twice, day and night, in the same day with my citypass (can visit two times within 24 hrs). It is less crowded if you go up to the deck from 10:00 am to 11:00... More

Cutting edge at the time and still a timeless piece of history and the views haven't changed one bit other than quite a few more office buildings to the south. At $22 for an adult, it's a less than for the new OneWorld Observatory in NYC/Freedom Tower but you get to go outside and brave the elements. A real treat... More

Fantastic views, though the Columbia Centre is arguably better for views. Insufficient facilities for the people who come. Well worth the visit
