Hello everyone! Happy Summer! I am so excited for the warm weather, the sunshine and to immerse ourselves in the beauty of Washington. We hit two years of living here next month. We don't go to Seattle very often but decided to surprise the kids with a trip to Seattle with lunch and an adventure to the Space Needle! It was so much fun and gorgeous views all around! Lunch was at Razzi's Pizzeria in Seattle - it was delicious and they have a huge gluten free and vegan menu which was perfect for me! The kids loved the pizza and said it was some of the best they've ever had - my husband and I had to agree.
The Space Needle is open daily and has the Loupe Lounge which is the world's first and only revolving glass floor - that was really neat but be careful if you get dizzy easily!
You can buy tickets there for specific time slots to enter or online. You can also buy tickets to see the Space Needle and the Chihuly Garden and Glass - which is next door. We only did the Space Needle however one day I'd love to see the garden and glass. General admission right now is $35 for ages 13-64. Ages 65+ are $30 and children ages 5-12 are $26 so we got free admission for our two toddlers - yay for savings!! HAHA!
The Space Needle is a must see if you ever visit Seattle. It truly is an amazing experience and the panoramic views are spectacular! The tower's design was inspired by the idea that the 1962 World's Fair needed a structure to be a symbol of space aspirations. The grand opening took place on April 21, 1962. It stands at 602 feet tall. I'm very happy we got to experience this with the kids - it will be one of our favorite memories.
