Space Needle. Seattle Washington.

Seattle is a common destination to many tourists, owing to the vast number of attractions found in the city. It is the largest city in Washington as well as in the Pacific Northwest region. The metropolitan area has an estimate of 3.7 million inhabitants making it the 15th largest in the US.





Space Needle is a legacy of Seattle from the 1962 World Fair. It stands tall at 605 feet making it an iconic observation tower with futuristic looks. The observation deck is at the 520 foot level and has a 360 degrees view of the Olympic Mountains and Seattle skyline. Sky City restaurant is just below the observation deck and makes a complete rotation every hour. It specializes in cuisine of the Pacific Northwest.











Admission - $21 per person for non-Washington residents

  1. Seattle is a huge metropolis. And maybe not everyone knows how this place was also the birthplace of grunge rock with bands such as Nirvana and Pearl Jam. I would have loved to be around in those early days when that scene was just beginning. Can't wait to visit this city one day, it feels like rock mecca to me.

    I had no idea that Seattle was such a huge city! All those beautiful lights! Really amazing photographs, by the way. I felt as if I was standing up on a high place looking down on the city. :)

    1. Seattle is a pretty big city. I'm not too crazy about driving in the rush hour traffic, but I love to visit at night time.

  5. The restaurant up top rotates every 15 min doesn't that make people nauseated while eating?

    1. I don't think so. It rotates very slowly. You don't feel the motion.
