Today you can ride the elevators to the observation deck and behold the view from what was once the tallest structure west of the Mississippi. Within the eye of the Space Needle, you can also enjoy the sights from a rotating restaurant. Be sure to come visit Simply Seattle where you can pick up Space Needle souvenirs and so much more!
