Where to Get the Best Views of Seattle
Ever seen those beautiful shots of the Seattle skyline with Space Needle in the foreground and mountain in the background? You too can add those perfect shots to your travel pictures.
I’ve visited Seattle many a time and only just now discovered the the location of those amazing pictures: Kerry Park.
Located about a mile north of the Space Needle, this tiny strip of park offers gorgeous, free day and nighttime views of the Seattle with fairly reasonable parking options. Just make sure you get there before it closes at 10PM for the night.
While you’re in the area, head west down W Highland Ave to Betty Bowen Viewpoint to get gorgeous views of Bainbridge Island with mountains in the backdrop.
Other Great Views of Seattle
Kerry Park is my top pick but I can recommend two other great options for taking in Seattle.
- The Bainbridge Island Ferry offers commanding views from the water (and a great day trip siteseeing option).
- The Sky View Observatory at the Columbia Center offers expensive and beautiful 360 views of Seattle. Best in good weather and during happy hour. 🙂
