Day 6 – Space Needle & Mt. Rainier

 

From a distance, it looks like a flying saucer on a tripod, and when it was built for the 1962 World’s Fair, the 605-foot-tall Space Needle was meant to suggest future architectural trends. Today the Space Needle is the quintessential symbol of Seattle, and at 520 feet above ground level, its observation deck provides superb views of the city and its surroundings. You’ll also find a pricey restaurant, SkyCity, atop the tower. If you don’t mind standing in line and paying quite a bit for a ride.

Driving up to Kerry Park, offers some of the best views in Seattle. It showcases the Space Needle, the Seattle skyline and Mt. Rainier.  It’s the best of the Seattle all rolled into one spot, besides the fantastic view of Seattle there was also a kids park and a small basketball court at the bottom of the hill. Really picturesque, and not a surprise that a bunch of photographers lined up their cameras on tripods across the viewpoint.
