Top Ten Instagram-Worthy Seattle Destinations

Seattle is a hidden treasure- it really is. With lakes, parks, beaches, farmer's markets, and a beautiful skyline that can be seen from many different viewpoints. It’s a great place for your next Instagram. Here’s a list of places to check out!

1. Gasworks Park

It’s a perfect blend of what Seattle has to offer – a park, a lake, and the skyline. Enjoy the next sunny Seattle day at Gasworks.


2. Discovery Park

As a coastal city, Seattle is surrounded by beautiful, serene bodies of water. Follow the “light” and “discover” this beauty next!


3. Fremont Troll

Modeled on an old folk tale, the giant troll sculpture can be seen hiding under the 99 highway bridge in the Fremont neighborhood. Be careful not to wake him with your camera flash!



4. Chihuly Garden and Glass

Take a stroll through Chihuly Garden and Glass to see a bit of Dave Chihuly’s amazing glass sculptures.


5. Mariners' Game

There’s nothing like drinking cold beer on a summer night while cheering for your favorite team. Even from the nosebleeds, the view on a nice day is a grand slam!


6. University of Washington

UW is one of the most beautiful campuses in the nation. Come take a snap of the famous “Harry Potter Reading Room” at the Suzzallo Library or the cherry blossoms in the quad when they’re in full bloom.


7. The Gum Wall

They took down the Gum Wall earlier this year, but the people and tourists of Seattle would not have it! Go and stick your own memories on the (slowly re-building) wall!


8. Kerry Park

One of the most famous and popular viewpoints in the city. On a clear day, you can spot Mount Rainier.  No matter the weather Kerry Park is an ever-dependable jaw-dropping view of Seattle’s skyline.


9. Space Needle

The Space Needle can be spotted all over Seattle, but there’s nothing like seeing it up close and personal. Go to the Seattle Center and make your way up the elevator to get a 360-degree view of Seattle.


10. Pike Place Market

This is the most “Insta-ed” place in Seattle. With the colorful flower stands, delicious food, and the popular fish throwers, you can understand why it's photographed so often!
