There is a restaurant up top, but it is for members only. Check with friends and businesses if they can arrange a visit, amazing food and well worth watching the sunset from the top.

You can see forever on a clear day! 360 view! Much higher than the Space Needle! Easy to walk to. Great price!

Super views all around, even in the rain. For an extra $11, you can get access to the restaurant and actually get food and a view!
