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.

The title says it all! When you are up there, you know where the post-cards of Seattle pictures were taken!

Beautiful views. Went at twilight on a clear night. You could see Mt Rainer and the entire skyline. Super small 'park' but can't beat the views.

Been here several times with relatives and friends visiting Seattle.I learned about this through my cousin and was amaze soon as we got there in a beautiful day. Thought I seen this somewhere and I knew it was all over posters, advertisements and so many items that carry the picture of downtown Seattle view. Never missed to entertain friends and... More

People go here for the viewpoint. The view of the Seattle skyline from this place is breathtaking. Great spot for photographers. On a clear day, you can see Mt rainier in the background. Don't go here for the "park" part.

Was easy enough to find with GPS. Post card postcard pictures and wasn't all that busy. And it's free.

We went to Kerry Park at night and just loved the city lights. We ubered there and back. There were probably 30-40 other people enjoying the view as well. I felt safe and was glad we made the trip. I've heard it's insane on July 4th.

Not sure what all the fuss is about. Yes, it is a lovely city park in a charming neighborhood with fabulous views, but Seattle is full of them!!

Perfect little park to take visitors. I live near here and the view never gets old. There are usually a lot of people here, and parking can be limited.

How enjoyable the skyline will photograph depends on the time of day. We were there early afternoon and the sun was way too bright for a good picture. The park is very small. Not really a park, just a viewing area.

This is a really nice place to visit for a great view of the downtown core and of the Space Needle. Also a great photo-op with unobstructed views. And from here the Space Needle looks as though it's the tallest structure around when it's far from it. Kind of a quintessential photo from here that looks like it's made for... More
