If you are in Seattle, drive by and take pictures in front of the Needle, but it's probably not worth the hassle to buy the overpriced tickets to visit it on the top. If you do go to the top, you'll get good views of the harbor and the city if the weather is clear, most of the time it's... More

If you come to visit Seattle and have never been, you must stop by and see the space needle. You don't have to go up, but atleast walk around. They're is plenty to see around the needle.

Nothing not to like. It was high enough to allow great photos from the top. If you want to eat at the restaurant, make reservations 1 or 2 days in advance.

Thing to do in Seattle. Self-led tour but there are lots of tools to explain what you are looking at (download the app) and there are view finders (free) at the top that allow you to see everything close up. Go for the free photo when you are waiting for the elevator and the selfie station from the top. cheesy... More

The view from the needle was spectacular. There was plenty of room to wonder and a 360 degree view of the city and the islands. We visited at noon in the middle of the week so there was not a big crowd. We were able to purchase a combination ticket with the Chihuly glass museum. Seniors get a good discount... More

I guess a must do for first time visitors to the city - well organised ticket booth & entrance process and on the day of our visit we found ourselves at the top within 15 minutes of arriving. That said this was an early morning visit - we noted much longer queues latter in the day so you may want... More

Once you've been in one of these "needles," it's seems that it's the same experience everywhere. However, I very much enjoyed the informative panels that one reads while waiting in line. To me, that was better than the actual space needle itself ... although I must say that the architectural foresight some 50+ years ago was quite impressive. It's a... More

This is worth your time. Download the app and read about the history. Take your time to absorb this wonder. Keep in mind this is touristy so allow for patience and time so you can enjoy yourself! The view from above gorgeous!
