Thursday/ getting around like a tourist

I could tell the tourist season is in full swing when in 3 minutes I spotted the Emerald City Trolley, the Duck and the monorail during my visit to downtown on Wednesday.  Tourists that go up in the Space Needle report that there is a haziness in the air looking north, and even looking south to Mt Rainier.  Much of the haziness is actually smoke from wildfires from way across the border in British Columbia, Canada!

The Emerald City trolley does several tours. The cheapest deal is a one day hop-on, hop-off Scenic Downtown Tour pass that goes for $29.

And here’s the Duck from Ride-the-Duck tours (cost $29).   And look! the venerable monorail train from the Space Needle is just arriving at Westlake Center.
