Built for the 1962 World Expo, the Space Needle's distinctive structure, rising 600-plus feet above Seattle Center , has since become Seattle's most famous landmark. Come take in the 360-degree view of mountains, Elliott Bay and all of Seattle's diverse neighborhoods. Stock up on Seattle souvenirs at the ground level gift shop, Space Base. Dine at the SkyCity rotating restaurant, where every seat has a view. Then continue upward to the observation deck at the spectacular height of the Needle to experience the Sky Q. The hi-tech Sky Q encompasses several impressive kiosks outfitted with high-definition cameras and screens.
