Why locals recommend it

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!

Excellent experience, nice view of the city of Seattle during the day or at night. The souvenir shop offers memorable items to bring home.

The most touristy and recognizable thing to do in Seattle, but it's also really cool. It really captures the 1960's space feel perfectly. Views are amazing and despite being overtly touristy, it's really a blast and I'd recommend anyone visiting Seattle make it to the top of the Space Needle!

Built for the 1962 World’s Fair, the 605-foot-tall Space Needle quickly became an icon of the city that today is recognized far and wide. On the observation level, which you can reach via a 43-second elevator ride, see the doodle-on-a-napkin concept that led to the Space Needle design. Views from the top feature Elliott Bay, the Cascade Mountains, and even Mount Rainier.

Seattle’s “must see” is now a “must do” following the Space Needle’s multimillion-dollar renovation. Glide onto The Loupe, the world’s first and only rotating glass floor, for never-before-seen views of the structure and the city. Lean into tilting glass walls on the open-air deck and float over Seattle on one of 24 angled Skyriser glass benches. Sip and sample the Pacific Northwest’s best while savoring the thrilling views. The future. Now open.
