Seattle, Washington has that certain something that travelers fall in love with upon arrival. Beyond its beautiful combination of surrounding mountains, water, and forest, Seattle is home to a downtown skyline that’s as unique as it is thrilling. Museums, galleries, restaurants and one-of-a-kind neighborhoods make up the greater Seattle area and provide guests with a seemingly endless variety of options for entertainment. While Seattle is always a sensational vacation destination, knowing how to make the most of its many spectacular views is a sure path to making a trip this direction unforgettable. The following are three of the top places to maximize the views and your overall Emerald City experience.
The Seattle Great Wheel
The majority of first-time visitors to Seattle might assume that the best view of the city comes from the top of the infamous Space Needle. While this is an inspiring vantage point, nothing compares to a trip up the Seattle Great Wheel on Pier 57 where the skyline is framed from great heights and the Space Needle is included in the view! At 175 feet, guests enjoying the Seattle Great Wheel will take a bird’s eye view on the city as they indulge in an ever-changing panoramic advantage point.
When it’s time to get into nature and enjoy an amazing view too, head over to Kerry Park which sits in the neighborhood of Queen Anne. Located at 211 W. Highland Drive, Kerry Park is a favorite amongst photographers for good reason. The Seattle skyline leaps into focus from this destination as well as sweeping views of the Puget Sound and Mount Rainier when the rain decides to stay away. This popular spot is best enjoyed in the early morning hours or in the evening with the added benefit of a great sunset over a twinkling cityscape if you time your visit just right.
What could be better than a captivating Seattle view accompanied by a first-class meal? Get the best of both when you make a reservation at Mbar. This restaurant is loved for its diverse Middle Eastern cuisine and perhaps even more for its floor to ceiling windows that provide an unsurpassed view from its rooftop location. Mbar can be found at 400 Fairview Avenue North on the 14th floor.
