If you have watched Sleepless in Seattle and 10 Things I Hate About You, you will have a 360-degree or Google Street View feels of how downtown Seattle looks like.This is the view can be relished on top of the famous Space Needle, an observation tower in Seattle, Washington. An icon of the city, this landmark was built for the 1962 World’s Fair which drew millions of visitors.The view almost never sleeps in the city for there are day and night observation packages. Everything is in order and this is how it should be in the Philippines, too. It is open Monday to Sunday 8:00am–12:00am.
Sure, it is really ‘hard to take Seattle for granted when you see it from 520 feet on our Observation Deck. Trace the outlines of the Cascades against the misty horizon. Instagram Mt. Rainier. Track ferries and boats as they cruise through Elliott Bay. Listen to the distant hum of people, cars, trains, buses, and bikers bustling around Downtown Seattle. It’s all up there, ready and waiting to be seen.’Check out complete stories on their site. Click www.spaceneedle.com for a virtual tour of this great landmark.
