Things To Do Near Space Needle in Seattle

It's Seattle's most iconic landmark – but what to do once you've come down from the top of the Space Needle? Luckily, this observation tower is located in Seattle Center, which is loaded with plenty of things for tourists to do.

Like the Experience Music Project/Science Fiction Museum, a two-in-one deal that tops our list. One ticket gets you access to both museums, so you can geek out over Hendrix and Hans one after the other. Also in the educational-yet-fun category near the Space Needle is the Pacific Science Center, with interactive exhibits for adults and kids, and the astonishing IMAX theater, which plays both Discovery-type 3D movies as well as Hollywood flicks.

Want to get around the city? Hop on the monorail; $2 and 2 minutes later you're at Westlake Center, ready for some shopping. Or hop on a duck – that's the name of the ship/bus-like beast that takes you on a land and water tour of Seattle, the pick-up zone of which is right by the Space Needle.

For the kids, there's plenty to do, like the Children's Museum located inside Center House, or the Fun Forest Amusement Park right outside of the Space Needle entrance. KeyArena is right on the other side of the Center, with a calender filled with basketball games, ice shows, concerts and other special events.
