AOL Travel Editor’s Review

When the 1962 World’s Fair opened in Seattle, the futuristic Space Needle became the city’s icon. The slender, mushroom-shaped structure is beloved by visitors who are whisked upward 500 feet by a glass-walled elevator. On top, the rotating SkyCity restaurant treats diners to 360-degree views, and the observation deck features informative displays, telescopes and a café. The Needle can be time-consuming (in peak season the 43-second trip to the top can require an hour-long wait) and costly ($18 round trip), but the views of the city, Mount Rainier, Puget Sound and the Cascade Range and Olympic Mountains are phenomenal.
