Step into the future by hopping aboard the iconic Seattle Center Monorail, a legacy of the World's Fair itself. The Monorail was the first full-scale commercial monorail system in the country and carries two million passengers between downtown Seattle (400 Pine Street) and Seattle Center each year. This sleek transportation system offers a unique perspective of Seattle's architectural marvels as it travels 30 feet above ground and serves as a testament to the city's commitment to innovation.

Food Recommendations:

We highly recommend checking out the food and beverage offerings at The Bar at Chihuly Garden and Glass! Another great option is the food court located inside the Seattle Center Armory Building (at the heart of Seattle Center near the Space Needle) – they have lots of great local food options like MOD Pizza, Skillet Counter, and Blue Water Taco.

Travel Tip:

The Monorail is the fastest, most direct way to travel to Seattle Center from downtown – the train departs every 10 minutes from Westlake Station (located at 5th Avenue and Pine Street) and drops people off at Seattle Center next to the Space Needle.
