Seattle Center

Landmark in Belltown & Seattle Center

The remnants of the futuristic 1962 World's Fair hosted by Seattle and subtitled Century 21 Exposition are still visible over 50 years later at the Seattle Center. The fair was a major success, attracting 10 million visitors, running a profit (rare for the time) and inspiring a skin-crawlingly kitsch Elvis movie, It Happened at the World's Fair (1963). Thanks to regular upgrades, the complex has retained its luster and contains Seattle's highest concentration of A-list sights.
