The iconic Space Needle in Seattle is an observation tower that was built for the 1962 World's Fair. I'd been to Seattle before, but never went up to the top because it's rather expensive. If you're visiting in the warm months, there's probably also going to be an insane amount of tourists waiting in line to go up. I mean there must be, considering you can pay even more to skip the wait and have your own private lift to the top.
But we went in November, a month known to be rather crappy weather-wise. You're lucky if you can see Mt. Rainier off in the distance, but there are far less tourists around. Luckily, this day in November was beautiful! Sunny, blue skies beautiful! Which meant that we had a perfect view of ALL of the surrounding mountains! We could see Mt. Rainier as the perfect backdrop to the city skyline, the Olympics across the sound, and the Cascades!! It was the perfect day to go! We could see everything and there weren't too many people around! We were incredibly lucky that we had 1 completely clear beautiful day; it really would have been disappointing if Brad had gone to the Seattle area and not seen Mt. Rainier. But this day, we could see everything!
