They say you haven't seen Seattle until you've seen it from a Duck. During your 90 minute ride on the Duck, you will be taking a tour on land and water while listening to a coast guard certified maritime captain as he or she narrates interesting historical facts and folklore. This is a great fun for the entire family, truly a party on wheels that floats.

EMP Museum

Seattle is also the birthplace of rock 'n' roll icon Jimi Hendrix, and it's highly recommended that you visit the EMP Museum, founded in 2000 by Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen. Originally intended as a Hendrix museum, it was re-christened “the Experience Music Project” and now features pop music, pop culture and science fiction, too! It's a short drive in your rental car to the EMP building – which itself is a unique sightseeing stop thanks to its amazing architectural design – and it's just a stone's throw away from Seattle's world-famous Space Needle!
