ahhhhhhhhhhhh, seattle, one of my all-time favorites.

what's not to like about the seattle skyline? curvacious and beautiful BofA standing guard, the exquisite po-mo wash-mu holding its own, the oddly-out-of-date-but-still-somehow-really-fooking-cool space needle rocking its own brand of jetson-style.

the mountains, the sound, the hills, elliot bay, lake union, seattle center, etc. this is one skyline not to miss in my opinion. seattle is just simply beautiful, in terms of both skyline and overall city. few skylines have ever really captured me with their beauty, but seattle is one of them.

9/10

What can I say about it. It is simply beautiful, the only reason I'm not giving it a 10 is because that is reserved for Chicago, New York, and Hong Kong. But Seattle is only a stones throw away from being a hugely dense and massive downtown. But when you have the sound, the lake, Rainier, Baker, the Olympics, the Cascades, and the forests. It's hard not to give it a 10...

Your right, so I gave it a 10/10! I simply love Seattle! I fell in love with it in a third grade field trip I can't believe that I actually saw the Bank of America only 10 - 15 feet away!!

Very well balanced full skyline, but not steralised enougth - quite a few ugly buildings and construction sites.
7.5/10

yes one of the most beautiful in the world, certainly in the USA, and the city gives Vancouver a run for its location.

Im very lucky to be flying over to both cities from Manchester next summer.

8.5/10

Since 10 is reserved for New York, Chicago, Hong Kong and several other major centres (my opinion only), I have to give it 9.5/10
