Sky View Observatory
Seattle is home to the highest public observatory on the West Coast. At nearly 1,000 feet, the Sky View Observatory is actually the tallest public viewing area west of the Mississippi.
The 360-degree view includes the anticipated Space Needle and city of Seattle, but also showcases Mt. Rainier, Bellevue, the Cascade Mountains and Elliott Bay. And that’s just naming a few highlights. The Sky View Observatory is open day and night, but sunset is a popular time to visit.
If heights make you hungry, the Sky View Café serves an assortment of sandwiches, salads, small plates, beer and wine. The Sky Lobby, located on the 40th floor is reportedly home to the highest Starbucks in the world.
