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.

Every once in a while I come back to this viewpoint. Its a great sight to look out on downtown. Its small and in the middle of the city so it can get crowded at times and parking is minimal but so worth it!

This must be the best place to take pictures of the city. It was hard to find a parking spot so prepare to take a long walk to the site. I stayed for the sunset and had several postcard like pictures of the Space Needle.

I recommend this for families, friends, tourists or anyone who wants to look at what a great city we live in. nice place to take pictures too. My son and... More

Kerry Park is an overlook of the city and sound. Can be windy; prepare for that as you will want to spend awhile in the sunshine whether warm or cold. Other overlooks are close by as well. Queen Anne neighborhood is sweet too. Take the opportunity to go to Athinas Grill, my favorite Greek restaurant which is nearby

Walked with a friend and her dog on a sunny but blustery day. Amazing views of the Seattle downtown skyline and the Puget sound. Park is in a nice neighborhood that is very walkable.

Sunrise/Sunset is gorgeous - I went early morning (7am) and had the park to myself. I enjoyed the park more than any of the other viewpoints.

This is the place where they take the photos for postcards! It's free and beautiful though it can get crowded. Walk just a bit further and come to more great vistas and see the cruise ships when they are in port. Don't miss this place on your trip to Seattle.

Best view for photo op. You get the Greys Anatomy view for picture taking. Easy access and worth the trip

Kerry Park is by far the best spot to get a panoramic view of Seattle. On a clear day, Mount Rainier looks spectacular but even on a cloudy one, it's definitely worth a visit. We walked up the steep hill which is manageable, enjoyed the view, took some pictures and walked down on the east side of the park which... More

We went there just before the dusk. We saw the skyline of the city transforming into a glowing one just by the use of lights. It was an amazing view. Loved it.
