You can travel back in time by climbing atop the city's oldest skyscraper.
While it might not seem as dominating today, Seattle's renowned Smith Tower used to be among the tallest skyscrapers outside of New York City at the time of its completion in 1914. In fact, it remained the tallest building on the West Coast until the Space Needle took the crown in 1962.
Nonetheless, this 484-foot tower will always be recognized as the oldest skyscraper in this city. Visitors are encouraged to climb the 38 floors to the world-famous observatory and take in the phenomenal 360-degree views of Seattle and beyond!
