"Sleepless in Seattle" House Boat

 

"Sleepless in Seattle" House Boat
Popular Seattle Tourist Attraction
The world-famous "Sleepless in Seattle" House Boat is docked off Westlake Avenue on Seattle's Lake Union. This house boat was Tom Hanks' home in the romantic 1993 movie "Sleepless in Seattle" — also starring Meg Ryan, Rita Wilson, Bill Pullman, David Hyde Pierce, and Rosie O'Donnell.

The Space Needle's Observation Deck features a map that pinpoints the area on Lake Union where the "Sleepless in Seattle" house boat sits — it continues to be one of the most asked-about sights in Seattle.
