  • Visited My Idol "Bruce Lee & his son Brandon" is a clean quiet scenic cemetery. From the entrance you look diagonally up to your left & up above before the American Flag, it's where you'll find his grave site. You'll probably notice a crowd of people there since it's the most visited site. Please don't just throw flowers it looks trashy, try to place them flat on ground, facing you & try to roll down the paper so everyone else can see the flowers & not just paper thrown on the floor. I left him some oranges, incense & gave a little prayer!
  • Very Well maintained cemetery of historic importance .... It is about a 145 years old and is the final resting place of many great people including Bruce Lee and Brandon Lee.. Visit the office of the cemetery across the road before going in. They have a map to guide you to Bruce Lee as there won't be signs in the cemetery. They also have a walking tour list which has the names of all important people resting here. Special Thanks to a lady in the office who looks strikingly similar to a young Judi Dench, I visited master Lee without any problems.
  • As noted, it is a nice peaceful place. Very well maintained, it has beautiful views and of course is the final resting place of many notable Seattle residents from the past. Great for history buffs.
  • One of my favorite parks in Seattle. Beautiful place to lie under the sun and enjoy. Great place for group meetings.
  • Great part of history and peaceful. The view is nice

Where to stay in Seattle

Famous for its architecture, Seattle's downtown area features a range of lodging options, including high-end hotels offering expensive rooms with views over Elliott Bay. Remember that despite their prices, many hotels in this waterfront district provide rather small rooms. If you need more space but don't want to break the bank, head out of downtown to some of the city's outlying neighborhoods. Seattle's diverse suburbs offer affordable bed and breakfasts, providing you with all the comforts of home and allowing you to see what local life is really like.
