Tour Stops

Next stop….adventure! Follow your local guide in exploring the locations featured in Gray Line’s Scenic Seattle Tour itinerary.

The Ballard Locks

The famous Ballard Locks carry more boat traffic than any other lock in the United States. Seattle’s version also includes a fish ladder and meticulously tended botanical garden. Learn about the Ballard Locks, which are now considered a member of the National Register of Historic Places.

Kerry Park

One of Seattle’s top destinations, Kerry Park has some of the best panoramic views of the city. Only 1.26 acres, the park sits on the south side of Queen Anne Hill and offers incredible viewing areas of Seattle’s iconic skyline. See the Space Needle, Elliott Bay, and the rest of Seattle’s downtown from arguably the best spot in the city to do so. When the weather is good, you will likely spot Mount Rainier in the distance too.

Tour Highlights

Our tours explore the most iconic landmarks in our own backyard of Seattle. Our remarkable guides are local experts on the history and culture of the region. Don’t forget your camera!

Gas Works Park

A former gasification plant, this industrial landmark was transformed into a beautiful outdoor park in 1975. Today, the park hosts locals and out-of-towners alike who come to play and relax in this green space located right on the shores of Lake Union.

Lake Union Park

Located a few steps outside of Seattle’s main urban hub, Lake Union Park immerses visitors in a whole new world. Discover stories about Seattle’s long maritime history, book a boat trip on a heritage vessel, or even reserve seats on a float plane tour to observe Seattle from the sky.

The Space Needle

Few destinations are more iconic and representative of a city than the Seattle Space Needle. Located at Seattle Center, the Space Needle stands 605’ tall and is easily one of the most photographed structures in the world. From the 520′ saucer-shaped “top house,” visitors can see downtown Seattle, Mount Rainier, Puget Sound, and the surrounding mountain ranges.
