We moved to Redmond recently, and decided to go to Seattle downtown for a tour. That's the 1st place we stopped. Kids wanted to go up, and yes, tickets are expensive plus parking, but we did it anyway. Spent about an hour there. W...

A trip to the Space Needle is a must if visiting Seattle. Hopefully you have a clear day. The views are amazing and you get a great perspective of one of America's finest cities. You can also watch the water planes land and take off in the water below you. ...

The Space Needle is something I have wanted to visit ever since I was a child.  We finally made our way to it today, and it was awesome! The weather was gross and rainy, but even with the fog you could still see a lot.   I'm really afraid of heights, but unlike the Calgary Tower the Space Needle feels much more stable.  There isn't much to do at...

It had been 17-years since I last visited the Space Needle, and it didn't disappoint the second time around...the weather did. They've built a new 'welcome' section at the bottom of the tower, with the ticket windows outside, a gift shop at ground level that wraps around the entire circumferance, and a grand entrance way that's air conditioned and elegant. The elevator ride still surprises the riders because it's a floor-to-ceiling window view on the way up.  The elevator curator made some funny jokes and greeted us to the top of the tower.  Up there, there's no bad view...except for the weather. Wife and kids in tow, we made our way through the interior seating area and out onto the outdoor viewing platform...

Been taking the three and a half hour trip from my home town to Seattle every now and again  for 17 years. I've never beevery close to Seattle Center, much less the space Needle when I've gone there. My wife and I decided to take our 7 year old daughter who's recently become aware of the city and REALLY wanted to go up the Space Needle.... We obliged. It IS a total tourist trap. It's the perfect memory for a growing kid to have, and that's why we went. I much prefer to admire it from afar than pay the money to go up top and get aggravated with bad parents (past trips to Wal-Mart have trained me for this type of thing. The bottom line is... It IS cool up top, and If you're visiting from another place in the c...

My opinion of the Space Needle is if you're in Seattle, you might as well go see it. My girlfriend and I purchased the CityPass so it was almost an obligation for us to go. I was excited to go, I'm not going to lie. The Seattle skyline is infamous, so why not be a part of something so great? Before you get in the elevator, the staff takes a picture of you in front of a green screen. At the top of the Space Needle, there's a kiosk where you can e-mail the photo to yourself for free! So what I thought the trip was was an elevator to the top where you stayed in the elevator and took a look at the view. Definitely looked at it as a super tourist trap. But to my pleasant surprise, there was actually a whole room ...

If you've got children, or just become fascinated by big city skyline views, the Space Needle may be your cup of tea.   Personally, I've bee...
