The Space Needle
203 6th Ave N
Seattle, WA 98109
(206) 905-2180

The space needle was built in 1962 for the worlds fair and is a unique landmark that often represents the identity of the Seattle area. At 605 feet with a needle shaped appearance it is the most unique building in the Seattle skyline. The space needle is made up of three areas for the public to enjoy. These three areas are the gift shop, restaurant and the observation deck.

The lower part of the space needle houses a gift shop called the space base. The space base sells a variety of items like souvenirs, gifts and jewelry. Many of the items are souvenirs in the form of the space needle itself. At the top the first stop for the elevator is the restaurant. The restaurant offers fine dining with a spectacular view. A unique feature of the space needle is that it rotates in a circle making a 360 degree turn in less than an hour. Above the restaurant is the observation deck. The observation deck is separated from the restaurant and it is not a requirement to eat at the restaurant to enjoy the observation deck.
