The Pacific Coast city of Seattle, Washington, is the home to movie and television sets, a great professional football team, and the Space Needle, one of the most recognised landmarks around. It was the home of the 1962 World’s Fair and boasts some great cultural locations and tourist spots that are not to be missed. Loaded with plenty of eateries and hotels, the best way to see the city of Seattle is by taking the ‘DUCK’ tour.
As you travel to the corner of Fifth and Broad Street at the Seattle Centre – you can get there by monorail – where the World’s Fair was located, you will come to the DUCK terminus and view for the first time the very unusual vehicle sitting there waiting for you. The DUCK is a WWII amphibious landing vehicle that will drive you around Seattle and sail on Lake Union for a very different type of tour. The pilot of the DUCK is also your tour guide and they know quite a bit about the attractions they will point out to you, including things that are not found in any guidebook published today.
