City smackdown: Seattle
The World Under the Space Needle.
The Space Needle is the coveted focal point of Seattle's Cityscape. Chicago has Willis Tower, St. Louis has it's arch, but the Emerald Cities Space needle is what sets it apart from all others.
Every year, millions of visitors make the journey to this attraction, but what's happening outside the needle is what makes it a world within it's own.
Sculptures, street performers, gardens, and shops, all engulf the grounds otherwise known at Seattle Center. This bustling atmosphere is something that gives both the Space Needle and Seattle a laid back status that travelers and locals alike, love.
