You’ve checked the Future of Flight Aviation Center off your bucket list and stuffed yourself with an array of tasty goodies at Pike Place Market. After a busy day of exploring, sometimes you just need a place to sit and watch the sun go down.

Whether you’re a Seattle native or a weekend visitor, take advantage of the city’s spectacular sunset viewing spots, which range from coastal parks to elevated man-made structures. There’s nothing quite like a sunset on the West Coast, and Seattle offers plenty of great places where you can see the sky turn from bright blue hues into cool violets and soft pinks as the sun dips below the horizon.

While beautiful, sunsets are poetically — and sadly — fleeting occasions. Make sure you don’t miss out while visiting Seattle. Grab a cozy picnic blanket, a bottle of wine and take half an hour to sit down and watch the sun say “adios” for the day.
