Kerry Park#9 in Best Things To Do in Seattle
This small viewpoint park, which offers amazing views of Elliott Bay and the Central City (and occasionally Mount Rainier), is a favorite with photographers. Sunset is a particularly popular time to visit, when the city lights up and the Space Needle is a beacon in the night. While the park is tiny, you can see the sculpture "Changing Form" and a childrens play area at the Bayview-Kinnear Park just below the viewpoint of Kerry Park.
Recent visitors said the views are astounding and advises others to come on a clear day and be prepared for crowds.
To get to the park, walk up from Lower Queen Anne (several bus lines, including the No. 2 and the No. 13, also service the park). It is open daily from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. and free to access. Visit the Seattle Parks and Recreation website for more details.

#1 Pike Place Market
Since 1907, this bustling market near the downtown waterfront has been the go-to place for local produce. Today, you can find almost everything, from local artwork to vinyl records. Plus, the flower market is a particular must-see, according to reviewers. Though Pike Place Market is one of the most tourist-heavy attractions in Seattle (plan to run into crowds, especially during the weekend) that's no reason to scratch it off your to-do list. Recent visitors said the abundance of vendors and lively atmosphere make it an experience you shouldn't pass up, no matter how busy it gets.
