Built as a half-size Eiffel Tower, the Blackpool Tower can be seen from anywhere in town. The Tower has become the centerpiece of an entertainment complex, with Disney-like themed rides, the Tower Circus, a Victorian ballroom complete with dance band, an aquarium, a Madame Tussaud's, a Ripley's Believe It Or Not, even an ice skating rink (at least the weekend I was there). There is enough to keep any family busy for a week.
