On October 19, 2014 we went to the Space Needle in Seattle Washington. The Space Needle has a great view of Seattle, Puget Sound and Mt. Rainier.
According to Wikipedia, the building is 605 feet tall and has 6 floors. It was opened on April 21, 1962. The Space Needle is built to withstand a magnitude nine earthquake, category five hurricane and up to 200 mph winds. The Space Needle only sways one inch for every 10 mph of wind.
The Space Needle also has some interactive activities to do while you are up there like games, viewing activities, and a mini museum. Overall there was not much to do and the food was very expensive; $4.38 for a small bag of Chex mix.
