Space Needle

Seattle Space Needle

Out-of-towners planning to visit the Space Needle have the opportunity to enjoy the wonderful view on the observation deck, which extends 520 feet up in the air. What is so fascinating about this deck is the stunning view available to you at all angles, especially when viewing from the complimentary Swarovski Telescopes. Also available is the SkyQ technology, made up of five kiosks – offering a hands-on experience when exploring Seattle.

In addition, for those who have an appetite while visiting, or you’re just planning to impress your date, make sure to stop by the legendary SkyCity Restaurant. Originally known as the “Eye of the Needle,” SkyCity is a revolving restaurant that allows for a spectacular view as you rotate 360 degrees. It also features a remarkable menu that offers seafood, steaks, chicken, and various vegetarian dishes. We also hear that the Lunar Orbiter dessert offered since 1962 is quite delectable!
