The Space Needle is Seattle’s Eiffel Tower.  Its elegance and futuristic look have aged well and it is a Seattle architectural icon recognized internationally.

Here are a few fun facts about the Space Needle:

Seattle's Space Needle Elevator

Photographers can have a grand time strolling around the area near the Space Needle and capturing the grace of this magnificent structure. You have to work hard to take a bad picture of the Space Needle.  Its unique bronze elevator cars are very interesting subjects to photograph.  Surrounding the base are a number of large stone balls that make interesting objects for photos.  At Seattle Center, you can shoot photos of this magnificent structure from many viewpoints.

Visitors can dine in the restaurant at the top of the Space Needle.  The base of the structure houses a large gift shop.

If you don’t experience vertigo, a trip to the observation deck of the Space Needle offers tremendous views of the Seattle area.  If vertigo bothers you, you can also see beautiful views from the top of the water tower at Volunteer Park.
