I have to admit that I was not looking forward to going up in the Space Needle. I hadn't heard very good things about it and it seemed like an expensive elevator ride to me. I was very wrong. We happen to be up in Washington on a beautiful week. Very sunny and clear all week long makes for an amazing view from the Space Needle. Add to that, we went near the end of the day and were able to watch the sun start to set. It was very fun and I would highly recommend it if you can make it on a clear, sunny day.
