Climb 520 feet to the observation deck of Seattle's signature building, which is actually 605 feet tall, for spectacular views of the city and its surrounding area. For food and fantastic sights check out SkyCity, the tower's rotating restaurant that makes one complete orbit per hour.

awesome views, but GO EARLY ! We stopped by on a Saturday afternoon, and there was a 3 hour wait. We went Sunday morning at 8 am when they opened, and walked right in.
