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.

Located in the toney Queen Anne neighborhood, you'll be delighted by the dead on view of the Seattle skyline.

Kerry Park is a perfect picture spot. Even on a cloudy day, you get the best free view of the city. If it's clear you get the bonus of the mountains as well. Parking can be a challenge, but well worth it!

This park is high on a hill overlooking Seattle, with views over the city showing the iconic Space Needle and skyscrapers, as well as the beautiful harbor and Mount Rainier, on the days when it isn't obscured by clouds. On nice days, the park is busy, but don't miss the iconic camera photo shot from this park!

The view from this small patch of grass is excellent. You only need to spend about 10 minutes to take it all in. There is a playground lower down on the hill if you have kids. For views of the sound I preferred the Olympic Sculpture Garden.

Great perspective on Seattle downtown. Must see spot on a pretty day. Parking is pretty easy on the street. (There weren't too many people there when we were there.)

Kerry park is worth a visit. We stopped here while on a city tour. The views of the city are lovely especially seeing the space needle from this view really is done thing special. Would highly recommend a photo stop here.

Free and breathtaking views of downtown Seattle as well as the Space Needle. If you have some time I'd recommending taking the walk here from the south. The surrounding streets have some beautiful houses and there is also a fairly decent mini childrens playground. So many different angles to capture such amazing camera shots from here. Definitely a must see.

As a Seattleite, I recommend this place as the #2 place to see in Seattle (after Chihuly Garden and Glass). Beautiful Seattle skyline!

Nice area to drive around with great restaurants and shops on the top of the hill. Has one of the very best views within the city.
