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 best view of the city. Parking is tough, but if you find a spot, this is a great place to relax with a picnic or a snack. We were lucky to be here on a sunny day. One of the few things in life that are free!!!

A terrific photo op. Worth the walk up the hill from the space needle. Great views of the city. This is just an overlook, not a large park.

This is a perfect park in the city to enjoy a beautiful view of Seattle. Bring a picnic or a coffee and sit for awhile.

Definitely enough said in the title, but I have to write 100 characters to submit this. Beautiful, post card like view. Walk a little further down the street for another park that overlooks the bay with views of the mountains.

Kerry Park offers the best view of Seattle. You can see the skyline with the Space Needle and Mt. Rainier in the background.

went here early morning so there's not a lot of people in the area. definitely a good place to have your picture taken with the view of Seattle as your background.

you have to climb your way through very inclined little streets if you dont have a car - but when you get there, you will know why you came. It was pouring rain when I arrived there and initially I couldnt see a thing, but when the skyline started to show, it was kind of amazing to have it revealing... More

The park itself is not that amazing but the view is wonderful. On a clear day, we can see Mt. Rainier on the background. Even though we were there in February which is supposed to be rainy season, but we were lucky the weather was fabulous! I think this is the park with the best view in Seattle.

The perfect place to get a great view of Seattle including the surrounding mountain ranges. We had a really sunny day and could even see Mt Rainier in the distance. It's pretty central to Seattle and easy to get to. I was on a shutter tour which took us there.
