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...more

My Daughter lives within walking distance of this park. it is very family friendly and the views are amazing any time day or night. You can see downtown Seattle. We were lucky and it snowed a lot. So we got to snowboard down this amazing...More
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
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
We walked up to Kerry park which was a challenge in itself but the view when we got there was truly stunning and one that will stay with me forever. I loved Seattle and the view from Kerry park sums up why....water, mountains and city......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

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 356 story, which has an outside walk around deck at the top, The Smith Tower is actually shorter then the Space Needle. You would have to be a registered at the Mediterranean Inn which has one of thee best views of the city and harbor and is widely known for it's sunset views. If you were to go there, and weather permitting, bring a bottle of wine and maybe a cheeseboard, you won't regret it.
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

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).
Looking to hear your opinions on this plan (12 Replies)
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
