If you have never been to Seattle, then you are missing a trick, but thanks to the wonders of the web you can pay a virtual visit get a bird’s eye view of the area. The Space Needle is a site that dedicates itself to its physical counterpart.

As the site states ‘Seattle Starts Here’, jump in at the ground floor and with precise control from the scroll wheel start the journey into the Seattle sky. A height indicator sits to the left to give users a sense of perspective, but the photographic backgrounds come into view to give the user a ssense of reality. Its almost like you are in the lift.

Scrolling up simply reveals more and more scenery and those scared of heights might want to look away as Seattle spreads out in front of you. Reach the SkyCity restaurant and while you are there make a reservation. Finally, hit the top of the tower and the Observation Deck gives the opportunity to check out opening hours and you will be so impressed you might even but tickets.
