Whether you're a Puget Sounder or are just passing through, chances are, you've been up the Space Needle at least once. But there are several other spots where you can get the best Seattle views for cheap. 

This thrifty Groupon deal takes you up the Sky View Observatory in Columbia Center, the tallest public observatory in the Pacific Northwest for only $10 per person. It usually costs $22, so we think this is a pretty good find. 

The viewpoint sits 902 feet above the ground and is open daily from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.

You'll need to take an elevator up to the 73rd floor — an adventure in itself. From up here, you can a bird's eye view of not just the Seattle skyline, but the Cascade and Olympic Mountains too. 

We kept an eye out on this offer and it seems to be selling out pretty fast.

You can opt to buy a single ticket if you're traveling solo or a group of four to bring the friends and fam.

You can even buy two as gifts if you want to whisk away your boo to literally show them the world. *Cue Aladdin song*

You'll have to pick up the tickets at the location's box office. It expires on April 1, 2020, though. So you'll have to redeem it by then. 

Although outside food and beverages are not permitted at this spot, there's plenty for you to snack on like charcuterie boards, cheesy fare, wraps, salads, puddings, and sandwiches at their cafe. 

If you want to stay awhile and just take in the vistas while sipping on booze, you can.

The bar up here has wines, beers and an envious list of cocktails filled with margaritas, martinis, Moscow mules, spiked hot chocolate or gingery elderflower fizzes for $8 to $12, a pop.  

Since parking in Downtown can be stressful and expensive, we suggest you share a ride or take the train to experience this ASAP.
