Greg Novoa of San Francisco was the 45 millionth visitor to Seattle's Space Needle. 45 million is the key number because the ol' needle just turned 45 years old. It's great news for Mr. Novoa -- he's been awarded five days and four nights in Paris, France for being in the right place at the right time. Nice!

The Paris hook is that the Eiffel Tower is evidently the Space Needle's "sister landmark." Mr. Novoa and whoever he brings will have a "VIP dinner" at the Eiffel Tower as well.

While we think visiting the Space Needle would be pretty cool (we've never been!), our friends at Seattlest published a nice piece about things to do with tourists not involving said landmark a while back.
