Take in breathtaking views of Seattle by visiting the iconic Space Needle, a must-visit landmark for all visitors to the city. Located in Seattle Center, the Space Needle is one of the most photographed structures in the world. 

Originally built for the 1962 World’s Fair, the structure has since become a symbol of Seattle’s innovative and forward-thinking spirit. From the “top house,” situated 520 feet up, visitors can enjoy 360-degree views of downtown Seattle, Mount Rainier, Puget Sound, the Cascades, and Olympic mountain ranges. The Space Needle has undergone a stunning renovation, opening up new, exciting experiences for visitors. These include a grand wood, steel, and glass staircase known as the Oculus, which connects an upper-level outdoor observation deck to The Loupe, the world’s first and only rotating glass floor. So, don’t miss out on the opportunity to experience the excitement and wonder of Seattle from this treasured icon!

While you’re there, Seattle Center offers many other family fun activities to enjoy including the Space Needle, Seattle Children’s Museum, MoPop, International Fountain, “Artists at PlayPlayground, and The Armory for a bite to eat.
