No trip to Seattle is complete without a trip to Kerry Park to get your iconic shot of the Seattle skyline. Halfway up the hill in the beautiful Queen Anne neighborhood you can find a tiny one-acre park overlooking the city. This park was gifted to Seattle by the Kerrys in 1927 so that everyone in Seattle could enjoy the beautiful view. So when you visit, say a silent thank you to Mr. and Mrs. Kerry (we like to imagine them as a slightly richer version of the old couple in Pixar's Up) because otherwise we would have to sneak through people's yards to get these photos (Sarah will do anything to get a good photo).
We were recently asked if we recommend visiting during the day or night. We are going to take the easy way out on this one and say, "It depends" and "Both."
If you have never been to Seattle before it is neat to come to Kerry Park during the day and get a panoramic view of the city. You can see Mount Rainier in the distance on a clear day and identify lots of landmarks from your lookout. At night though, the city offers a whole different experience. The city lights along with the water of Puget Sound glistening as the ferry boats go back and forth is something you can sit and watch forever (realistically more like 10-15 minutes, but it's really nice, okay?)
