Space Needle, Seattle
It's space-agey, kitschy, and cool—and may offer the best views of Seattle around. The Space Needle, constructed in 1962 for the World's Fair, today offers a museum, a revolving restaurant, a gift shop, and (of course) a stellar observation deck. Admission tickets cost $16 for adults, or see the changing skyline with a day-and-night pass (allowing two visits within a 24-hour period) for $20.
