The best deal if you plan to visit multiple sites is a CityPASS ticket ($99 for adults), which can shave nearly half the cost off admission plus offers expedited access to many attractions including the Space Needle, the Seattle Aquarium, Museum of Pop Culture, Chihuly Garden & Glass, Pacific Science Center or the Woodland Park Zoo. The passes are valid for nine consecutive days if you plan to stay longer.

Fresh from a $100 million renovation, the Space Needle has unveiled a new revolving glass floor and glass walls giving visitors a jaw-dropping peak at the city below their feet.
