When visiting a major city and you only have 24 hours, you need to plan an itinerary to get the most out of your trip. There is always so much to see and do that whittling it down to an achievable list is often damn near impossible. So, I’ve done it for you for Seattle.
1. Space Needle
The first thing people put on their list of things to do in Seattle is visit the iconic Space Needle. Towering at 605 feet, the relic of the 1962 World’s Fair is the tallest structure west of the Mississippi River. The observation deck at 520 allows a multi-angle view of the city and surrounding mountains. At 500 feet is the rotating Sky City Restaurant, where every table has a view and it’s a great place to stop for lunch or dinner. A full rotation occurs every 47 minutes.
