    The place to get that classic Space Needle shot is Kerry Park on the southern slope of Queen Anne Hill. It covers barely an acre, but it gives you the panorama of Elliott Bay, downtown & the needle. Read more

    Stand on the bench closest to the city to get over the trees. This is the postcard shot of Seattle with the Needle in front of the city. For more of a fun shot frame the Space Needle in the sculpture.

    Aside from Alki, this is one of the all time best lookout points to see Seattle's skyline.Great place which includes downtown, Space Needle, ocean, and Mount Rainier. It was breath-taking.

    Awesome view of Seattle and Mt. Rainier on a clear day. Grab some Molly moon's ice cream a few blocks over and enjoy your snack with a view!

    Not crowded usually and has the best view in town (of the town)! Although it's better to visit when it's not rainy (not so often - it's Seattle after all)

    Great views! Worth the trip up the hill. Before getting there, stop a couple of blocks up the hill first to Molly Moon's for some delicious ice cream and enjoy it while sitting on the wall.

    Offers one of the best views of the city rain or shine, night or day--but it's postcard perfection on a clear day at nearly sunset when "the mountain" (aka Mt. Rainier) is out.
  • Rachel E.
    Rachel EubanksMarch 11, 2014
    Really and truly the best view of Seattle. Definitely a hike from Belltown/Downtown/any neighborhood near the water but worth it. Better than the view from the space needle!

    If coming from Lower Queen Anne, stop for a glass of wine before or after at the Sitting Room and take the more romantic stairs nearby versus straight up Queen Anne street.

    You can't get a better, closer view of the Needle than at Kerry park. Yes, touristy. But still an awesome view especially when the mountain is out!
  • Marizza W.

    It's quite a hike to get to on foot from downtown but worth it for the best views of the skyline. Not much open space though.

    During the summer, bring your out-of-town friends here and snap your very Seattle looking pictures. Look up at the clouds, too!

    Fantastic view of Seattle & the space needle - take a no 1 or 29 bus to get to Kerry Park from downtown. Helps you up that hill for USD2.50...

    Amazing. Go a bit before sunset when the sky is changing rapidly. Bring a lover to smooch or a beer to sip (sneakily).

    Probably one of the most iconic views of the city. Photos are great, but seeing it in person is even better, especially during sunset.

    While you're here, don't forget to check out (and check-in at) the nearby Marshall Park for an equally spectacular view. It's at the corner of W Highland Dr and 7th Ave W!
