Space Needle

Built in 1962 for the World's Fair, the Space Needle is the most prominent landmark that you will notice in the skyline of the city of Seattle. It is probably the first place you want to visit once you get your foot into Seattle and that is what we actually did. After a four-hour long drive from the city of Vancouver our first stop was the Space Needle.

Pictures may deceive you into thinking that the Space Needle is not that tall, but actually, when you are really there it is just amazing. Measurements say that with the antenna / spire on the top of the space needle the height measures at about 605 feet from the ground.

For you to be able to go up the Space Needle observation deck, you need to prepare around $16.00 per adult. After you get your ticket, you will ride an elevator, which will bring you to the observation deck. During the short elevator ride, a guide will say some introduction and history of this very famous landmark.

At the observation deck, you will see some great sights view of the whole city. Here are some of the pictures:

After some sightseeing and searching for our hotel in the space needle, we went down, the day went by, and we returned with some of our friends in the evening. Here are some of the sights:

Just fantastic!
