A great view can leave you breathless—although, curiously, so can getting stuck in a box for too long. Ooh and ah with this Groupon.

Groups of two or four journey up to the 35th-floor observation deck in a manually operated elevator to take in views of modern downtown, Mount Rainier, and the Cascade mountain range. The observation deck is open air, which lets visitors feel the breeze, smell the sea air, and possibly take revenge on the pigeon that ruined their sport coat years earlier.
Smith Tower Observation Deck
When it was built in 1914, the Smith Tower was the tallest building west of the Mississippi. Though it lost that designation a mere 17 years later, the tower still captivates Seattle visitors with the Smith Tower Observation Deck. The open-air deck wraps around the tower's 35th floor and grants panoramic views of the city's modern downtown and Puget Sound. Seattle's gorgeous surrounding landscapes are visible from the tower as well, with the majestic peaks of Mount Rainer and the Olympic Mountain Range creating a stunning horizon. And the journey to the observation deck is a treat in and of itself. Passengers ride in one of the last manually operated elevators on the West Coast, which is caged in brass and copper in the style of the early 20th century. In the lobby itself, 22 Indian head sculptures watch over the onyx- and marble-paneled room, acting as precursors to the grandeur of the tower's top floors.
