If you live in Belltown, chances are you see the Space Needle every time you walk outside, as it is literally in our backyard, but have you ever actually been to the top?
I often hear from local Satellites that the Space Needle is lame, too touristy or too expensive. While, yes, it is quite pricey to reach the top ($17/ per adult!) for a view that is not much higher than some of our condo rooftops it is still a wonderfully novel piece of Seattle. In fact, when have you seen a post card of the Seattle skyline that does not include the Needle?
For me, it is a bit different. I still get giddy when I see the Space Needle. I often take a picture when I am near it, or far from it. For me, it serves as a reminder of how I was able to move here, as I had wanted to for so long, and reminds me I am home. Plus, if you ever have been to the top, you probably know it is one of the best places in Seattle to watch the sunset over the Olympic mountains! Imagine how impressed your date will be when you bring him/her to the top of the Needle for a drink and sunset?
