Posted by on Jun 19, 2009 in Uncategorized

DUDE! I’m so pumped! EagleRider just opened a new location in Seattle at the Waterfront Marriott! What a cool hotel!

Today, they are the world’s largest motorcycle tourism company specializing in rentals of Motorcycles, ATVs, Dirt Bikes, Scooters, Snowmobile, and Watercraft. EagleRider understands the needs of motorcycle enthusiasts and adventure travelers; we offer a huge selection of perfectly maintained Harley, Honda and BMW motorcycles and allow one-way rentals or guided tours between franchise rental facilities located in the most desirable tourist destinations in the world.

EMP – My neighbor!

Posted by on May 23, 2009 in Uncategorized

You know what I heard today? I heard it cost $240 million to build EMP/SFM. Wow, Paul Allen has a lot of money. EMP/SFM is pretty rockin’ though. It’s two bodacious museums in one, right across the street from me! It’s a music museum on one side and a science fiction museum on the other. All for one pretty nectar admission price: 15 big ones. Dude, did you know? Right now they have a new Jim Henson exhibit called Fantastic World. It features more than 100 original artworks, plus puppets and movie props. Kermit the Frog is a radical dude. I wonder if he’s hanging out over there? Photo courtesy of The Jim Henson Company. Kermit the Frog © The Muppets Studio,...

Tourism Matters!

Posted by on May 12, 2009 in Uncategorized

Tourism Matters! Yeah man! Did you know that here in Seattle the tourism industry employs almost 150,000 people, generates total direct visitor spending of $15.8 billion and generates $1 billion in state and local tax revenue. At Ride the Ducks, tourism creates a million smiles a year! That’s a rough estimate though… I lost track at eight when I ran out of fingers. Did you know? A few years ago, our state tourism budget ranked 47th in the nation. The state started moving in the right direction when the Washington State Tourism Commission was created and funded. However, the proposed state budget plans to cut the tourism commission’s budget by 65% and take $22 million from the Washington State Convention and Trade Center’s capital budget. This would be a significant blow to Washington State’s fourth largest industry and me and Tom Norwalk at the CVB are hoping that Christine Gregoire will veto these line items on May 19, 2009. Just to show our support, one of my Ducks left today with a group of people from the Seattle Convention and Visitor’s Bureau to go to the Tourism Matters rally at Westlake Center! They were hootin’ and hollerin’ and waving signs to show our support of tourism in the state...
