Seattle Space Needle

The Seattle skyline features the Space Needle.

You can’t possibly talk about Seattle as a travel destination without talking about the Space Needle! Seattle has one of the most unique skylines in the world. While most are known for skyscrapers, Seattle’s has a slightly shorter alienesque tower that would rival something in a sci-fi movie.

The Space Needle in Seattle, Washington.

The Space Needle was constructed for the 1962 World’s Fair. The design was a merging between two architects’ ideas, a mix between a large balloon fixed to the ground and a flying saucer. At 605 feet the Space Needle is far from being the tallest building in the world, but observation deck at 520 feet offers some impressive views of the city and nearby mountains such as Mount Rainier.
