Seattle's 7 Best Sunset Spots to Fall in Love With

Washington, Seattle Guide (B): Seattle's 7 Best Sunset Spots to Fall in Love With

Seattle is one of the most beautiful cities in America. The modern architecture, in my opinion, is ruining the beauty of our downtown, but nevertheless, the nature, thankfully, has remained the same. Nearby downtown Seattle, there are several spectacular spots to watch the sunset. Most of these places are visited by locals and showcase some of the best sunset views in town. Although the city is not limited to these seven spots, I recommend these places to step outside the bustling city and to end your day with a touch with nature. 

Marshall Park is a tiny view point park located on West Highland Drive, just minutes from Kerry Park. Around sunset, admire the skyline at Kerry Park change colors and then make way towards Marshall Park to watch this ball of fire set behind the Olympics. Across from Marshall is the ancient Parson's Garden, where trees look as old as the dinosaurs. 

Discovery Park is another a local hotspot. Runners, relaxers, bird watchers, everyone flocks to Discovery Park to escape the city and enjoy some R&R. Follow the loop trail (I start at West Emerson Street) that leads to the beach. On a lucky day, bald eagles soar above the shoreline and red tail or Cooper's Hawks perch in the nearby trees. This is the biggest park in Seattle and one of the most beautiful. If you have time, walk toward the lighthouse for a bit of peace and quiet.  ......
