The main floor (under the needle) is a large gift shop. The observation deck is approximately 520 feet off the ground. There is a fancy restaurant one floor under the deck that revolves slowly while you eat. Of course, reservations required!! The needle was built for the 1962 World's Fair and there are other exhibits still on the grounds, one of which I will share at the end of this post.
So on with the show!

When you are in the Pacific Northwest, make plans to visit the Space Needle and you will not be disappointed!
