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 park itself is a tiny swath of lawn bordered by houses on two sides and a road on the third. It's the 4th border that takes your breath - probably the prettiest and most encompassing view of Seattle. The walk/drive is worth it. And if you like to visit pretty neighbourhoods, there is the added bonus of walking down... More

Great view of Seattle but smoke from wildfires made ours foggy. This was a stop on our shutter tour so we parked right there and it was so convenient also we saw some gorgeous homes on the ride there with information about the area from the tour guide.

A steep climb for several blocks is rewarded with a fantastic view of the Seattle skyline. The park is in a residential neighborhood with attractive homes and gardens.

Quite a hike getting to the top of the hill, but the view is spectacular! Go on a clear day for some awesome photos--I think it beats the space needle.

This is about the best view of Seattle that one can find. It is a small park and is busy but worth the effort.

This park has hands down the best views of the city. Atop Queen Anne hill, this park boasts panoramic views of the city and the pager sound. I definitely think a stop here while in Seattle is not to be missed.

Had heard that there was a great view of Seattle from this park and all the rumors were true! A small place but it wasn't crowded when I visited. Be sure and check out the sculpture, it makes for a cool photo op to take pictures of the skyline through it.

This is a must see location particularly on a clear day. Gorgeous views of cityscape and Mt. Rainier. Better view than the Space Needle.
