Check out the (slowly) revolving restaurant at the top of the tower and book a romantic and scenic dinner at sunset for amazing views of the city and a great dining experience.

Built for the 1968 World's Fair, the 750-foot Tower of the America's is now a multifaceted tourist attraction, with an upscale bar, two restaurants, an observation deck, and a movie theater. Instead of paying $10.95 for a ticket to the observation deck at the top of the tower, you may want to apply that money toward lunch or dinner at the Chart House restaurant or drinks at the bar (the ride is free for restaurant and bar customers). The top of the tower slowly rotates for an ever-changing view. Check out the Tower of the Americas Plaza, at street level, during the summer. Every Friday night from 7 p.m. to midnight, there are live music performances, car shows, and other free events.
