Seattle Monorail

Sweeping city views from the Space Needle!

June 13, 2017

One of our favorite places for amazing views of Seattle is up on the Space Needle’s Observation Deck!

The Space Needle is open daily 8:00am-11:30pm. The Space Needle is located at 400 Broad St. Seattle, WA 98109.

As Seattle’s iconic landmark from the 1962 World’s Fair, the Space Needle hosts over 1 million visitors each year. The Space Needle offers a stunning 360-degree view of Seattle in the summer! On the ramp leading to the elevator, you can learn about the Space Needle’s history. After a 40-second elevator ride, you reach the Observation Deck, towering 520 feet above Seattle Center. We loved seeing both the Olympic and Cascade mountain ranges! If you ever hear locals say, “the mountain is out today,” this means that it is a beautiful and clear day in the Pacific Northwest, with Mount Rainier in sight.

All Space Needle guests receive a complimentary digital photo download!

With clear views of Downtown Seattle, Queen Anne, Puget Sound, and South Lake Union, you can appreciate all the beauty that Seattle has to offer. You can even see the Monorail from the top!

Use the huge SkyPad to sign the global guest book and see where Space Needle visitors have come from! You can also upload your Space Needle memories to share with current and future visitors.
