“The world is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page.”
The district is named after the signature showy Victorian architectural style of its historic homes. When Seattle hosted the 1962 World's Fair, the fairgrounds and iconic Space Needle were constructed at the southern edge of Lower Queen Anne. The former fairgrounds area is now known as Seattle Center, home to the Pacific Science Center, Experience Music Project museum and the spectacular Chihuly Garden and Glass exhibit. Perched atop Queen Anne hill, Kerry Park provides panoramic views of downtown Seattle, Puget Sound and majestic Mt. Rainier. Queen Anne is in Seattle's southwest quadrant, north of Downtown and across the shipping canal from Fremont.
