For one of the best views of Seattle head to Kerry Park, a small park located on the south side of Queen Anne Hill.  A photo from here is Seattle postcard-perfect, featuring ferries crossing Elliott Bay, the city skyline with the Space Needle in the forefront and, if weather conditions are favorable, a view of Mt. Rainier.

A must see experience in Seattle, perfect for a nighttime visit when the downtown city lights are at their best. This can be paired with a good dinner, coffee or dessert on top of Queen Anne hill. Highland drive is a great drive-by opportunity to view lovely homes and see locals out and about walking their dogs.

This location was a great find. It is free and worth stopping to take the perfect picture or a dozen..... It is not so much of a park, but more of a lookout spot of the Seattle skyline. I would go back.

From this small park you can see a gorgeous view of the Seattle skyline. It's the closest view to the famous "Frasier" view from his apartment. A must.

Many of the photos you see of the Seattle skyline, harbor, Space Needle and Mount Rainier were taken from this pretty little park halfway up the south slope of Queen Ann Hill. Worth a trip for some photos and to enjoy the view. Parking can be impossible and it is a steep hike up what locals call "the counterbalance" from... More

Kerry Park is not really a park in my opinion, but a great lookout spot for a great view of the Seattle Skyline. I took a 2 hour walk around the Queen Anne after visiting Kerry Park, and the homes surrounding the park were just as incredible as the view. Would definitely recommend checking it out if you have the... More

My title pretty much covers the situation. Good city views. Great walk if it is not raining or too hot.

Beautiful view! Day started out cloudy and raining but the sun broke thru and gave us a bit of warmth. Glad we stopped.

Kerry Park is the iconic view of Seattle that tourists & locals flock to year round. It can be very crowded at sunset, & is in the middle of a residential neighborhood, so keep that in mind while you're grabbing a photo of downtown Seattle. It has sweeping views from the ferries, to Mt. Rainier, & of course the Space... More
