Smith Tower

Before there was a Space Needle, grandparents took their grandchildren to the Smith Tower, the tallest building west of the Mississippi River for half a century. Although many larger buildings have sprouted around it, the 35th floor observation deck still provides a great view of Pioneer Square (and might not be as intimidating as the Space Needle). It’s also the only building in town that still uses elevator operators.
