The Basics

So much is happening in Seattle Center that it would be almost impossible to miss on a trip to the city. Just about every Seattle sightseeing tour stops at the iconic Space Needle (once the tallest building west of the Mississippi), along with other notable attractions and features such as Pike Place Market, Elliott Bay, and Pioneer Square. Admission to many Seattle Center attractions—the Space Needle and Pacific Science Center among them—is included with the Seattle CityPass.

We really enjoyed the tour. We would have liked to have a second person giving the tour while one person drove instead of the recording. Also, there is no real schedule for stops. No one working knows. Everything else is great.

Great tour. Good history and information. Loved you could get in and off the bus to explore. We got off at pike market and when we're were done went back to the drop off spot and the bus came shortly after.

Premier 3-Hour Seattle City Tour
The trip takes you on must see places outside the city which is nice for trying to squeeze in the most in a small amount of time. Brian was a great guide. The views were amazing. Loved being outside the downtown area of seattle and seeing what else is around

When to Get There

There’s not really a bad time to visit Seattle Center, though it’s a good idea to visit both during the day and after dark to get a comprehensive feel for this hub of activity. Over Labor Day weekend, the Seattle Center hosts the huge and internationally popular Bumbershoot festival, featuring thousands of performers and artists. There’s almost always something going on at Seattle Center, so check the event calendar before your trip.

Seattle Space Needle

The Space Needle easily ranks as Seattle’s most famous landmark and the most visited attraction within Seattle Center. While it’s visible from throughout the city, you haven’t really seen this landmark until you’ve visited the observation deck 520 feet (158 meters) above Emerald City. From the top, the 360-degree view takes in the Elliott Bay waterfront, the lights of downtown, and even majestic Mount Rainier in the background.
