Kerry Park is the one spot where the best views are all grouped together. You get the Seattle skyline, the space needle and on a clear day even Mt. Rainier. This view is beyond describable. Up there it feels like you are looking at a...More

Even in the heavy snow with no views whatsoever this was a smashing place to visit. You can seize just about all of downtown Seattle's history from this one spot gifted by the Kerry family.

Nestled in a great neighborhood in Queen Anne, Kerry Park offers breath taking views of Seattle and Mt. Rainer. Try to catch it at sunset!

It's a bit of a hike to get here if you're coming from the Space Needle, but it's totally worth it. You get what I think is the best view of the city (I also did Columbia Tower and the Bainbridge Island ferry). It's a...More

Kerry park offers the beautiful view as seen on the common pictures - perfect for getting a good angle of Seattle. The park itself is more like a lane of grass with a balustrade, nothing special and just good for it’s view. Many tourists are...More

A little obscure to get to (luckily we had a tour guide) but worth the stop if you have time to kill in Seattle. The view overlooks the city skyline and is a perfect picture opportunity.

On our tour, our last stop was Kerry Park. Seeing Seattle and the surrounding area was just an amazing view and the neighborhood homes in the Park....WOW!

After wandering around the Space Needle, we decided to take a hike up the hill to the Queen Anne neighborhood. It was rough at first, but well worth it. The views are breathtaking.

You should look to get images of the sign above the market. At the corner of Pine and 1st street, you can see the sign, "Public Market." Very iconic image of the city.

It all depends on the weather there. Kerry Park is a real good place for the view of the city, You can also consider the Columbia Center, a 76 story building with an observation deck at the top, or the Smith Tower at 35 or... More

Looking for some advice for a ~3.5 days in Seattle in early September staying in downtown Seattle (couple blocks from Westlake Ctr station). Between researching here and a few other resources online, we've decided on a few must do's and then some potential ideas on how spend our time and hoping to get some advice. We definitely plan to do Pike Place Mkt, underground tour at Pioneer Square, Space Needle, and Chihuly Garden and Glass. I saw the City Pass which includes Space Needle, Chihuly...More

I would not buy the pass. You can get to the Locks using Metro bus public transportation but it would take a while and to me would not be a "must do" for such a short stay. Klondike Gold Rush Museum is fun. It's free, only takes 15-20 mins. to see it, and is a few blocks away from where you'll be for the Underground Tour, so definitely keep that one on the list. For souvenirs there's lots of great stuff you can pick up at the Pike Place Market. Chukars Cherries, jams and honey, dried...More

I will be in Seattle in a few weeks and want to find a spot to take a picture of the Seattle skyline .. what would be the best place for that? Kerry Park? Any better places? Thanks

From Alki Beach or from the ferry to/from Bainbridge Is or Bremerton. The top of the Space Needle gives a good 360 degree view (on a clear day/night).

Hello Seattle experts, I am planning a 3 days visit next week-end and I would like to hear your thoughts on it. Few things to keep in mind: - we are a relaxed young couple, and we like to visit museums, markets, and spend some extra time in a place if we like it - we will purchase the city pass (hence some attractions are related to the pass) - we will use public transportation + feet to explore the city - we love coffee :) What I would like to check with you: - Anything else I...More

I think it all sounds just fine :) with a few small comments... I've never understood the attraction about the "first Starbucks". It's in the Pike Place Market and looks like any of a zillion other Starbucks. I don't get the attraction about Kerry Park (we see it mentioned often on this forum)> It's a nice view of downtown Seattle, but you can get that in many places. I'm not sure I'd take the time to bother, assuming you're going UP the Space Needle which is the most incredible view of...More
