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.

I would suggest this location as a quick stop by maybe before dinner as best photos are right at dusk. There's nothing to do here but enjoy view. If your running or walking head west as there's another park with an equally awesome view of the Olympics about a mile down same road

Kerry Park is one of Seattle's best keep secrets. It's located in the upscale Queen Anne neighborhood and is on one of the most exclusive streets in Seattle. Look at the city and then go for a walk past the gorgeous homes and you'll come to another overlook (20 minute walk both ways). Great for photos.

A pleasant area to walk around. Awesome view, nice houses/designs..Can get crowded and parking would be a challenge.

There is really no word to describe the feeling when standing at the park and looking over the whole city of Seattle with Mt. Rainier in the background - just WOW! over and over again The park is quite small - but the view is amazing. If you are in Seattle, this is one of the must sees.

Tiny park, but worth taking the trip up for the fantastic view of Seattle. On a clear day you can also see Mount Rainier. The neighborhood is also very lovely and we enjoyed taking a walk through just to look at the houses.

Great views of the city and Space Needle, especially during dawn and dusk. Many photographers setup tripods for best shots. Views of Mount Rainiger possible when not cloudy or foggy.

The view was fabulous and left us speechless! We walked from our hotel in downtown Seattle. Though much of the way there was uphill, it was totally worth it to see the view on the beautiful sunny day!! It is a must see for sure!

This was a tiny park. I had expected it to be a bit bigger but I guess if you're there to see the skyline then you don't really need a huge park. It's situated nice and close to the city centre and in a nice neighbourhood. This resulted in an amazing view of the Space Needle and the skyscrapers. See... More
