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.

Fantastic view of the skyline

I was searching for a skyline view with the space needle in it and must say that although not being sure at the beginning if it was worth it, I am so happy I went there. I took... read more

I was searching for a skyline view with the space needle in it and must say that although not being sure at the beginning if it was worth it, I am so happy I went there. I took an Uber from the space needle ($4, short ride but a bit long to walk). The view is stunning and I would... More

This is a popular destination for photographers to capture the Seattle Skyline. It's great during sunset, on a clear day, or for a romantic stop. It's smaller in scale and is more known for views rather than playing or space.

Even on not so clear days, you can sometimes catch a glimpse of the mountain from here. On clear days, thus iconic view is absolutely breathtaking. Fun play area down the steps that the kids will love.

Stunning views of the city, with Mount Rainier as a backdrop! Even on cloudy days, the view is great, but with clear weather (it happens, even in Seattle!) it is spectactular. The city lays out before you and seems close enough to touch.

Great place with an awesome view of Seattle. To get there, you can take the bus #3 #13 #29 in downtown!

It's a park where you can take in the whole of Seattle and its skyline. Take a photo or selfie — plus Seattle in one picture. Go in the morning like 7am-8am, not much people only those doing their morning jogs. Although be ready with a jacket or a sweater since it's too cold from up there.

This is a neighborhood gem. It's a great place to see both downtown and Puget Sound from one of Seattle's old neighborhoods. Easy to take a bus to from downtown with a couple block walk from the bus stop. Great place to take photos, too. Do take time of walk a few blocks west to see Parsons Garden, a little... More

Very popular year round. One of the best views of downtown Seattle. Often fairly crowded with tourists, but a nice place to get a pic of the city.

A small park. But nevertheless good a short stop and a quick picture of the Seattle skyline if you are from out of town.

Very nice view of the city and the bay, including the iconic Space Needle and if weather permits, Mt. Rainier as well. Also, it's up on a hill, so it can be a refreshing exercise to get there, it's about 20 minutes walk from a bus that runs on the seaside (for instance line 24, stop Roy St. if you're... More
