The Space Needle Seattle has been an attraction I’ve wanted to visit ever since I watched The Jetson’s in 1987. Elroy is so cool. The neat part about visiting the Space Needle is when you walk in you walk up this huge ramp and it’s full of retro themed photos – even The Jetson’s! Basically, it’s like a little museum. We had City Passes, which means we visited twice – once during the day and again at night. If you’re only going to make one trip, make it during the day. The wind is ridiculously gusty at night. Okay, check out our photos below!

We got to the Space Needle around 9am and there was no line – we even let people pass by us as we took a look around all the retro photos and read the stories.

Around the observation deck, inside of course, they have so many interactive TVs. This one shows the Space Needle Weather Cam from every hour of every day. Basically, you can see the view all the way back in time (to when they started filming it, of course).

Up next, heading outside. Cool, yes! Rainy, yes! Windy, not so bad during the day; but at night, yes!

Home is NE of Seattle. My heart points home.

That’s us having a lot of fun!

The observation deck is pretty quiet in the morning, so if you want good photos without a lot of people in them, then head up early.

These huge screens are full of people’s Instagram photos with the Space Needle tagged and locations of how far people have come to visit. It’s neat. I love connection.

What it’s like at night? Windy and busy. Visiting twice in one day is worth it since the view is different, yet spectacular both ways. If you’re only able to visit once though, go during the day. The wind made it challenging to take photos at night.

It’s so tall, yet not very tall at all.

Overall, visiting the Space Needle is a definite highlight of our Seattle vacation. Visit if you get the chance and don’t forget to look down!
