Located in the center of Seattle, the Space Needle is Seattle's most famous architectural landmark. It was built in 1962 for the World's Fair and remains a symbol of the city of Seattle. The Space Needle is 520 feet high and offers a 360 degree view of the city. Reserve a table at the Skycity Restaurant and enjoy a decadent buffet of the Pacific Northwest's finest foods. Access to the Observation Deck is free with your reservation with SkyCity.

The Seattle Space Needle is a must see for visitors to the Seattle area. The Space needle is visible from all around the city and is worth a visit. The needle is open all year round and is not closed on specific holidays. Prices for tickets range from $10-18 while children under 3 are free. The elevator shoots you to the top in 43 seconds. The Space Needle was constructed for the World's Fair in 1962 and has been a top tourist attraction ever since.
