Let’s face it, as parents, we spend a lot of time in the car driving here and there. And it’s inevitable that at some point our little sidekicks will fall asleep while doing so. Instead of circling the block a million times or sitting in the grocery store parking lot, read on for our list of 10 awesome places (with seriously fantastic views!) to park while your tot catches some zzzz’s.

Kerry Park

Located in Lower Queen Anne, Kerry Park is hugely popular with tourists and locals alike. Once you see the views of downtown Seattle, the Space Needle, Elliott Bay and Mount Rainier, it’s easy to see why. Find a spot and take in the city views, people watch, daydream... whatever, the world is your oyster at this park. Psst! Once you park here, you will likely hope your little sleepyhead dozes for a long time.
