Don’t Fly South for the Winter… Get on a Duck!

Posted by on Nov 8, 2013 in Blog, Uncategorized

It’s officially fall in Seattle and while we’ll miss the longer days and warmer evenings, we couldn’t be more excited! As the leaves turn and the days get a little shorter, this is a great time to get onboard a Duck and tour Seattle, especially if you missed out this summer!  Open Year Round. Ride the Ducks is open year-round from our Seattle Center location and through December 31 at our Westlake Center location. With 362 days a year to tour Seattle by land and water, there’s no excuses for why you haven’t been on a Duck recently! We happily spend Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve and Christmas Day to be with our families and we hope you do too. Blankets Onboard.

If you’re departing from Westlake Center, check out the Starbucks right next to the kiosk! From Seattle Center, walk less than a block north and you’ll...
