  • To go to the place we didn't know where it was actually the tomb of Bruce and Brandon, but as soon as you enter you'll realize it's the busiest place. The Space Needle in the distance can be seen from the place.

  • Visited My Idol "Bruce Lee & his son Brandon" is a clean quiet scenic cemetery. From the entrance you look diagonally to your left & up above before the American Flag, is 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 in the floor. I left him some oranges, incense & gave a little prayer!
  • 5 stars for a nicely maintained resting place for many including Bruce and Brandon Lee.
  • Beautiful Cemetery ... Best place to RIP
  • Nice clean quiet place.......visit famous people that have passed on.......
  • This is a beautiful forever resting place for so many. Of course, you'll also find Bruce and Brandon Lee, we were humbled to pay our respects to these two legends.

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.
