One sunny day in Seattle. 🌤🇺🇸 Experience breathtaking territorial views from Seattle’s iconic Space Needle. Enjoy a quick, 41-second elevator ride to the Space Needle’s Observation Deck and soak up this spectacular city from 520 feet (159 m) above the ground.
Built for the World's Fair in 1962, the Needle, along with its outside deck, provides 360-degree views of the Seattle area's outstanding natural features. Soak up views of Puget Sound to the west, framed by the snowy peaks of the Olympic Mountains. Look for stadiums home to the Seattle Seahawks and Mariners to the south, catch glimpses of the Cascade Mountains to the east, and look for the peaks of Mt. Baker and Mt. Rainier as you explore every possible viewing angle.
Learn about the Needle's construction, unique architectural features, and fun facts, like its ability to withstand winds of up to 200 miles per hour (322 km/h). When you're ready to head back down, take the smooth glass-paneled elevator back down and consider adding onto your day at #SeattleCenter with admission to the Chihuly Garden and Glass exhibition, full of unbelievable blown-glass works of art. 🌲 #Seattle#SpaceNeedle#ObservationDeck#Washington#WashingtonState#ObservationDeck#Landmark#TouristAttraction#Travel#Wanderlust#PettaAdventures#TravelAddict#NoFilter#Sunshine#PNW#PugetSound
