Space Needle

view from top of needle

Then we walked up to the Space Needle. Incidentally, the surrounding park gives you (for free!) all of the good things about Epcot's World Showcase except the margarita stands around "Mexico." The whole vibe of the place -- science and art and pling-y Asian background sounds (Epcot: piped in; Seattle: authentic buskers).
