The Pike Place Market has been a defining Seattle icon for more than a century. Considered by many “the soul of Seattle,” the Market spans nine historic acres in the center of downtown where everyday locals and tourists alike shop, visit, eat and discover.

Founded in 1907, the Market is one of the oldest and largest continuously operating public markets in the United States and is brought to life by the hundreds of farmers, crafters, small businesses, and residents that call it “home”.

While the Market is grounded by its incredible collection of diverse businesses, activities, and services, it simply would not exist without the passion and support from the citizens of Seattle.

From humble beginnings to nearly being destroyed – Seattle’s citizens have brought their hearts to the “soul of Seattle”.

Space Needle Loop 

Dine at the top of the Space Needle! The Space Needle is one of the most recognizable landmarks in the world and is a treasured Seattle icon. Built for the 1962 World’s Fair—the Century 21 Exposition whose theme was “The Age of Space”—the tower’s futuristic design was inspired by the idea that the fair needed a structure to symbolize humanity’s Space Age aspirations. Since its grand opening on April 21, 1962, the landmark continues to symbolize the innovative and forward-thinking spirit of Seattle.

Located at Seattle Center, the Space Needle stands at 605 feet tall and is one of the most photographed structures in the world.

The tower’s 520’ saucer-shaped “top house” offers visitors Seattle’s only 360-degree indoor and outdoor panoramic views of downtown, Mount Rainier, Puget Sound, and the Cascades and Olympic mountain ranges.

To further elevate the visitor experience, the Space Needle embarked on a multi-year venture focused on the preservation and renovation of the icon. The first phase of the renovation, completed in late summer 2018, included breathtaking, multi-level, floor-to-ceiling glass viewing experiences including an upper level outdoor observation deck with openair glass walls and Skyriser glass benches. The Oculus, a grand wood, steel, and glass staircase connects the upper-level to The Loupe, the world’s first,and only, rotating glass floor below. The new glass floor experience opened up a never-beforeseen downward view of the structure and the surrounding area, putting Seattle, literally, at your feet.
