Owner description: 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.

“Best view of Seattle skyline!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 27, 2012

I went here on my first visit to Seattle and was sold. I moved here just about 9 months after that night!

Gorgeous view of Space Needle, downtown and Elliott Bay. During the day it's busy with tourists and locals alike, and at night it's one of the most romantic after-dinner stops. View is great even when it's cloudy, and world-class when it's not.

There's plenty of street parking right by the park and in the nearby streets, even on busy days I've never had trouble finding a spot.

There are a few benches, but the main attraction is the view. Good for 30 minutes or so if you're a tourist, longer if you have a picnic lunch to enjoy.

One of my favorite places in Seattle!

“Great view!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 25, 2012

It was great exercise for us to get up the hill on Queen Anne, but the walk to the park was relaxing and the view was a reward! We went there almost every day we were in Seattle. Sometimes 2 or 3 times.

The World Famous view of Seattle through a sculpture is awesome. A cute little laid back park with a million dollar view

“Great photo spot!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 21, 2012

Loved the famous view!!! This has to be considered the most undervalued view of the city. Don't miss this place - easy to find and no problem parking on the street.
