Did you know they’re making a Frasier reboot?! That’s right, the TV show “Frasier” ended 17 years ago but it’s coming BACK! “Frasier” ran from 1993 to 2004 for a total of 11 seasons, and we’re excited to see what Dr. Frasier Crane is up to in 2021. This has us thinking about, of course, that iconic “Frasier” view.
If you are both a diehard Frasier fan and familiar with the terrain in Queen Anne, then you might have already been a little suspicious of Frasier’s view. According to this very well thought-out Curbed article “What ‘Frasier’ got wrong about Seattle,” the view from Frasier’s high-rise condo is technically impossible.
Now, if you’re like us, you don’t mind indulging the show’s writing and you can just kick back and appreciate the view and the fun local references. Plus, there are *actually* REAL Frasier-like views of the Space Needle and the Downtown Seattle skyline if you know where to go. Here are just a few places you can admire the “Frasier view” from:
On Lake Union, you really feel like you’re smack dab in the center of the city and that’s because you kind of are. Paddle a kayak out to the middle or take a cruise to see the sights, which includes a spectacular view of the Seattle skyline.
Coming Across Interstate-5 Going Southbound
Whoa, this view. Now if you’re the driver keep your eye on the road, but your passengers are in for a treat! It’s especially stunning on a summer’s day when Lake Union is dotted with boats, and it’s absolutely gorgeous at night.
The Hills in Magnolia
Magnolia is pretty unique in that it offers “small town vibes” and a charming residential setting, yet you have these breathtaking views of the Puget Sound, the Space Needle, and the Downtown skyline. The good thing is that you do not have to live here to appreciate the view—there are plenty of parks and bike trails to explore that afford views galore.
Kerry Park in Queen Anne is one of those places that appears on “Where to Visit on Your Trip to Seattle” tourists lists again and again. And it’s with good reason. This little park let’s you feel like you’re perched on the top of the world with Seattle at your feet. Bring a coffee and sit on a bench to watch one of the best shows in town!
