You are probably wondering why i would ever recommend a cemetery for a trip to Seattle but this is no ordinary cemetery. The Greatest Martial Artist of all time is buried here!!! Bruce Lee and his son Brandon Lee are both buried side by side with red and black marble headstones. Every day people from the area walk through the cemetery to lay flowers at his grave and tourists from all over go to visit. On the day i visited i met a man who traveled all the way from Belgium to see him and take pictures. If at first you cant locate his plot, ask a local walking by, they know who and what you are there to see and would gladly walk you to the Dragon's grave.Recommended for:

Lakeview Cemetery is known for the grave sites of Bruce Lee and Brandon Lee, marked by two large monument graves and surrounding hedges. The cemetery is in the Capitol Hill section north of Volunteer Park. The cemetery also offers an excellent view of Lake Union.Recommended for:

Bruce Lee and his son are buried at this cemetery so it's very well-visited, especially during the summer. The name is self-explanatory, there are views of the lake by the cemetery and it's a really well-kept and clean area in a luxurious neighborhood.

A visit to Seattle is not complete without paying tribute to Bruce Lee, the martial art legend who has brought together the east and west and is largely responsible for globalization of the eastern martial arts. I was expecting a gigantic tribute to the Kungfu legend and his son Brandon in the cemetery, but their grave is actually very subtle and insignificant we would have missed it if not for other visitors, which in many ways increased my respect for him.Recommended for:

Came here to see Bruce Lee. I love Bruce Lee and the fiance and I paid our respects TWICE during our time in Seattle.
Bruce/Brandon Lee are located up the hill near the flag pole. If you're looking for them - then go towards the flag pole.
They have a beautiful grave site and a seat for you to look at them and reflect your life.
There are two other people buried near them and it's sad that they don't get the attention too.
Clean place. Very eerie but all cemeteries are like that.
