Best Things to Do in Seattle

Space Needle Located at the Seattle Center with many other family activities, the Space Needle is Seattle’s major landmark.  You can take an elevator to the top for around $8 and see amazing views.  There is also a restaurant at the top that is pretty pricey.  The Space Needle is a lot cooler from a distance than close up.  It is made of metal and somewhat run down, but worth a look.
