A visit to Seattle just isn’t complete without a trip to the Space Needle Observation Deck. Towering 520’ above ground, the Observation Deck offers panoramic indoor and outdoor viewing of Seattle and the surrounding area, free telescopes and more!
Built for the 1962 World Expo, Space Needle distinctive structure, rising 600-plus feet above Seattle Center , has since become Seattle's most famous landmark.
Everyone should go to the top of the Space Needle at least once in their life! Take a jacket and enjoy the views. Turn off your flash though!
Messi visited here prior to taking on the Sounders FC at CenturyLink Field in front of 66,848.
expensive, but worth the view
Went to the top of the Space Needle on a sunny day and took tons of photos.
On a clear day the view is amazing of all of Seattle and the surrounding mountains and Pugent Sound
Icon of Seattle - great view of the city from the Observation Deck. The gift shop has a nice selection of Space Needle/Seattle themed merchandise.
Did you know: In 2006, a WiMAX antenna was installed on the Space Needle, sending wireless broadband signals across a 5 square-mile area of Seattle.
Checked out the views.
Make sure you get your free photo emailed to you once you get to the top!
go to the top. don't be a tourist.
View the city
Beautiful at night.
Sure, it's a touristy thing to do. But the view was amazing and I'm glad I did it.
If it's really windy, run around the observation deck. lean forward with hands in jacket pockets to float. Do not look in the windows.
If you're used to big cities and skyscrapers this is a bit of a let down. Looking at it is cooler than the view from it...
The views are amazing! be weary if you're afraid of heights!
The Space Needle is a must see attraction of Seattle! Take the Link Light Rail next to the DoubleTree Seattle Airport and it will take you directly downtown Seattle! Don't forget your camera!
Go to the space needle restaurant (best time is just before twilight). Eat anything for dinner - nothing is specifically good - but don't forget to order dessert.
Entrance fee is 19$, but you can go to restaurant which is required 25$ minimum bill and observation desk entrance is included!!!
Don't wait in the line, use self check-in kiosk!!
Leave your purses at home hoes!
beautiful views of the city - definitely not to be missed
Go to the top and enjoy the view...
Check out the Columbia Center for a better view of Seattle for a quarter of the price.
Go up at night...
Instead of paying the pricy fee to go to top, enjoy it from below. Great picture op when sitting at the mural near the center house. More impressive than actual view from top.
Go up to the top right before sunset on a clear day. that way you'll see the best sunset ever and get to see the city at night.
blow bubbles from the top of the space needle
Have dinner at the space needle!!
This is just the most over glorified fancy gift shop to ever exist (landmark) psshaw!
Views at sunset are spectacular, but come early or late if you want to avoid lines. Get a souvenir photo taken before you board the elevator, they're fun to look at upon returning to the ground floor.
Ride to the top, and if you're feeling like a luxury, have dinner while you're there.
If it's a sunny day, try and get up to the observation deck just before sunset. Amazing pictures.
Take 360 video as you walk around the observation deck to make your friends from back home jealous!
Awesome view from the top, day and night.
Try the duck ride while in the area.
Make sure you visit the Collections Café in the Chihuly Garden and Glass Museum at the base of the Space Needle.
Worth a ride to the top
Make reservations in advance for dinner. If you eat in the restaurant you get free admission (saves $16/person)...dinner runs $40-$60/person for a main dish.
