About This Page
This is the index to a series of pages devoted to viewpoints around Seattle. These pages are written primarily for visitors who are clueless and car-less in Seattle, and who want to enjoy some of what Seattle is famous for - its views.
We'll show you how to get to Seattle's best viewpoints from downtown by bus, and what to expect when you get there. Suggested departure bus stops are those closest to the Westlake Center, a retail and transportation hub of downtown Seattle. Check the Metro Bus web site for latest information.
Keep $1 notes and quarters about your person, to pay for the bus rides.
For those getting about by car, we provide a link to MapBlast! Click on their "Directions" page to map a route to the viewpoint.
