- $18 for Sky View Observatory visit for two ($28.50 value)
Located over 900 feet above ground on the 73rd floor of the Columbia Center, the Sky View Observatory is the tallest viewing area west of the Mississippi River. From that area, guests get a 360 degree panoramic views of the Cascade Mountains, the Olympic Mountains, and the Seattle skyline and Space Needle.
Sky View Observatory
It’s hard to miss Columbia Center. Completed in 1985, the structure demands to be noticed—its three massive, interlocked concave facades stretch to a mighty 943 feet, making it the tallest building in Seattle and the 20th tallest building in the United States. The landmark occupies an entire city block, just like the Great Pyramid of Giza, and houses offices and a public observatory that treats eyes to 360 degree views of the surrounding mountains and Puget Sound, where food and drinks are available for purchase.
