    Seattle's landmark! I love seeing the Space Needle when driving along the highway because it looks so majestic against the sometimes clear blue skies. There's the restaurant at the top and you can spend time downstairs at Seattle Center too.

    I am terrified of heights but this has an amazing view and great food. But the restaurant is terribly expensive.

    I lived getting to see Seattle from the Space Needle. There is so much to look at in beautiful Seattle! Though I was there on a busy day, the lines don't take long at all. The elevators are very well organized.

    I really liked the Space Needle visit. After seeing this landmark in many movies and tv series I was excited to finally go up there.

    On the way up I have to say that the sense of height and the elevator moving kind of fast got me slightly dizzy, but as soon as the elevators doors opened I forgot about it and enjoy the view.

    Getting to know that a place this amazing (both in looks and engineering) was built back in 1962 and also being able to read more about its history was pretty nice.

    I recommend the visit for every tourist, you have to stop by if you are in Seattle, specially if it's your first time there.

    Good view from the top, and if you are living here long and you expect lots of friends coming in the year, do get a multiple-entry pass.

    Pretty surroundings with a rotating restaurant up top. Not sure if it's worth it to go inside and pay to go up it. It's nice to see from the outside! Especially when the flowers are in bloom.

    I actually kind of enjoyed the view while going up the glass elevator, but it's not for everyone (like the girl who was whimpering the whole way up). Make sure to go up when it's not too gloomy. The telescopes on the top are all free, so make sure to check them out. Of course on your way up, they make you pose for a picture, but don't throw away that slip of paper. When you get up to the top of the needle, you can check out your photo and even change the background before emailing it to yourself. Also be sure to try out the fudge counter in the gift shop. They have so many flavors it's hard to choose just one.

    It is worth the trip to the top to enjoy the view. Then take the monorail downtown.

    I came here expecting more than what was presented. Other than the food, views, and pictures, there wasn't much else. The fun lasted only about twenty minutes before I wanted to go somewhere else in the city. If you come here, pay more attention to other places in Seattle!

    The quintessential landmark in Seattle, and a great place to get the view. There is a monorail that will take you here, or you can make the trek across town on foot.

    Did you know it costs $19 to go up to the top of the Space Needle? Neither did I, until recently. My friend and I took a trip to the top and we spent some time taking photos of the 360 degree view of the city. Blue skies galore! It was a gorgeous June day. The ticket is good all day so you can go up and down as you please. You can also eat in the restaurant if you have a reservation. If you're already there, why not? Well we opted to go elsewhere for dinner but I'm sure the restaurant gets plenty of proposals, anniversary and birthday celebrations through its doors. The Space Needle is an iconic landmark and you should visit it if you ever get the chance. I had lived in Seattle years ago and never went to the Space Needle but I'm glad I was able to this time around.
