Seattle is a pretty chilled out place as far as American cities go, perhaps thanks to the level-headed locals and its mountainous surroundings. Gain a full appreciation of the city when you see it from the 73rd floor of the Columbia Center.

A ticket for the Sky View Observatory will let you see an amazing skyline unfurled before you in one magical panorama, with Mount Rainier, the Olympic Mountains, and Mount Baker looming dramatically in the distance.

Up and away!

Wonderful. Booking process was very easy. We were able to get some amazing shots!

It's quite nice. But as it's all inside and the windows are tinted, you don't get a true "wow" experience. It feels like watching television.

Neat experience, there's historical information and general facts all over the floor, tabletop games, foods and beverages. The view speaks for itself. You'll have your photo taken in different poses, and the option to have prints made using different backdrops. Great experience.
