First of all, it attracts tourists with its observation deck, located at an altitude of 159 m (and the total height of the tower is 184 meters). It offers views not only of the city, but also of the Olympic and Cascade Mountains, and Eliot Bay. The tower also has a Sky City restaurant as well as a gift shop.
The tower is part of the Seattle Center, which was built in 1962 to coincide with the World's Fair. Despite the fact that at first glance it looks rather shaky, the “needle” has already passed the strength test several times: it was not afraid of storms or earthquakes.
Admission to the Space Needle costs 22 USD. You can buy a ticket that will allow you to visit the tower twice a day: during the day and in the evening, when the city will be beautifully illuminated. This will cost $32.
