New Feature!



Well, we still don't have jet packs and flying cars, but the most iconic symbol of that 1960's space-age promise -- the Space Needle -- still stands as Seattle's most-recognized tourist attraction. Built for the 1962 World's Fair, the forward-looking theme of which was "Century 21," the 602-foot Needle looks like a huge flying saucer on a towering tripod. At the 520-foot level, the observation deck provides panoramic views of the area's surrounding bays, lakes, mountains, and other points of interest. Just below, at 500-feet, diners enjoy a 360-degree view in the revolving Sky City restaurant. On the way up to, entertaining and comedic elevator operators rattle off fun facts and invite visitors to test their Needle knowledge.







Insider Tips

John Ferri

Ten Best Logo 03 Local Expert Says:

"The fine-dining space atop the Needle is one of the few revolving restaurants in the world. The 360-degree view is spectacular, and the food isn't bad either."

Best for Attractions near KeyArena at Seattle Center Because: No visit to Seattle is complete without ascending to the top floor of the Space Needle. Enjoy panoramic views and perhaps a fine meal.

Best for Attractions near the Convention Center Because: A Seattle must-do, the Space Needle's viewing tower provides beautiful 360-degree views of the surrounding water and mountains.

Best for Romantic Things to Do Because: Savor gorgeous 360-degree views (plus a delicious meal!) atop Seattle's most iconic landmark.
