Space Needle Views

Seattle, Washington

At Seattle Center, Broad St @ 5th Ave N

Seattle's 605-foot tall Space Needle, built for the 1962 World's Fair, is a popular destination and even more popular as the subject of many visitors' photographs. Quite a few visitors take the 41 second ride to the top for views of Seattle, the Cascades, the Olympic Mountains and - on a clear day - Mt. Rainier.

The photos here showcase some of the views from atop the Space Needle.
