2. Burj Khalifa - Dubai, United Arab Emirates
The tallest building on Earth, the Burj Khalifa’s observatory sits 452 meters into the sky (the building itself is 828 meters tall). At 452, meters, you are at nearly the same elevation of Maine’s Cadillac Mountain (466 meters), which is the highest point on the Atlantic coast of the United States.
It’s the perfect place to conquer your fear of heights.
6. Penobscot Narrows Bridge - Prospect, Maine, United States
Open from May through October, the observation tower in Maine’s Penobscot Narrows Bridge is the tallest public bridge observatory in the world, at 128 meters in height. From the top, you get an awesome view of Down East, Maine, and Penobscot Bay.
7. Rockefeller Center - New York City, New York, United States
The GE Building, probably better known as 30 Rock, allows you to take a lovely elevator ride to it’s apex, known affectionately as the Top of the Rock. While long lines, may dog the other observation deck in town, the view from atop Rockefeller Center reigns supreme.
10. Tour Montparnasse - Paris, France
You probably think you should be shooting up the expensive and crowded elevators at that other tower in the center of Paris, but don’t you want that other tower to feature prominently to your pictures of the City of Light?
As an added bonus, Tour Montparnasse wont be in those shots.
