With Interstate 90 ending there from the east and Interstate 5 running through it from north to south. It is hard to take a road trip through Western Washington without going through the Seattle area. That is a good thing though because that is one city that it is very easy to spend some serious time in.
One of the most popular attractions in the city is one that is probably also the most identifiable with Seattle, the Space Needle. The Space Needle offers incredible views of the city and some other fun experiences. If you have never been up to the top, that is something you really need to do.
To be honest, I don’t go up to the top of the Space Needle every time I’m in Seattle, but I try to at least once ever two or three years. The photo taking opportunities there are great. Another nice part about visiting the Space Needle is that you can eat at the restaurant up at the top.
On our last trip up we decided to eat there because the restaurant had been completely remodeled and rebranded since the last time we’d eaten there. The restaurant goes by the name Sky City and does a wonderful job of entertaining and satisfying everyone who goes there. The food was great and the friendliness of the staff was top notch. The best part though is that the restaurant rotates. It takes about an hour for it to rotate around completely, so that means by the time we’d eaten our whole meal we’d also see the entire view of Seattle from all angles.
Dining at the top of the Space Needle is something that is really a good memory maker, regardless of your age or the ages of anyone dining with you. It’s completely unforgettable. As I remember, I enjoyed my last meal at the needle some years ago. I think it has definitely been improved though.
Going up to the top of the Space Needle is an awesome experience. Dining there at Sky City is even better.
