If Seattle is known for anything, this is it. If views are your thing, purchase a ticket and check out the newly renovated observation deck. For an better view that includes the Space Needle, head over to Kerry Park!

The Space Needle is an observation tower in Seattle, Washington, a landmark of the Pacific Northwest, and an icon of Seattle. It was built in the Seattle Center for the 1962 World's Fair, which drew over 2.3 million visitors, when nearly 20,000 people a day used its elevators.

You'll definitely want to plan part of an afternoon visiting the Space Needle- c'mon, it's Iconic! Sure it looks like a futuristic vision from the 1980s, a la the Jetsons.. but it's ours. All joking aside, the Space Needle just received a gorgeous facelift. Ride up the 520 foot high elevator,…

This is the Space Needle, once created for the World's Fair back before you were likely born (since you're using this site, after all!)
