The Space Needle - Seattle
The Space Needle looms majestically above the Seattle skyline. Built for the 1962 World Fair, it reaches 605 feet into the air and weighs a monstrous 9,500 tons. Millions of people have visited the site which is thought to be one of the most recognized landmarks in the USA. At the top there is a nice place to eat, drink and observe the fantastic panoramic views of the Seattle skyline. On the lower level, there is a well stocked gift shop for books and souvenirs. It was a wonderful visit. The staff could not have been nicer or friendlier.
