    Very, very much worth a visit. Especially if you've never been. For a small amount of money, you get a ticket to cool observation deck at the top.

    Sad to report: Public access was closed 5 December, 2014. There was no timetable for it to re-open. The notice was buried at the bottom of their web page, so check carefully before going

    Gorgeous from the inside and the outside too! One of Seattle's historic buildings that was considered the highest bld. in the city until the early 1910s (not exactly sure)

    Smith Tower, Seattle's first skyscraper, was the brainchild of gun and typewriter manufacturing heir Burns Smith, who planned to build the tallest building outside of New York.

    We dare you to count the carved Indian heads in the lobby of the Smith Tower Observation Tower, take the antique elevators to the deck and make a wish on the Wishing Chair.

    Take their hundred year old elevator to the 35th floor and enjoy a scenic view of Seattle.

    Wonderful view, 360° outside walk way. Oldest skyscraper in Seattle. Expensive parking in nearby lots or metered curb side.

    Architecture and interiors are instagram-heaven! Pay the $7.50 and pay the intricate Chinese Room a visit!

    The view is nice and don't forget to visit and sits in the wishing chair for the single ladies.

    Wear tight fitting clothes, and keep your arms above your head on the ladder! Way cooler than the Space Needle. Read more
