Seattle Neighborhood Spotlights: Ballard

The history of Ballard is pretty amazing when you consider that William Rankin Ballard (the neighborhood’s namesake) ended up owning the land because he LOST a coin toss. When the land’s four owners dissolved their partnership in 1887, nobody wanted the stretch that contained the railroad. William, who already owned the land next to it, “won” it as the loser… but SURPRISE! This turned out to be an awesome thing! See, railways are an...

Seattle Neighborhood Spotlights: Capitol Hill

If you hear “Capitol Hill” and you think politics- think again! Our favorite Capitol Hill (Cap Hill for short) sits right east of downtown in the heart of Seattle and is quite different from its Washington DC counterpart. Upon arrival in this neighborhood, you’ll immediately notice the rainbow of colors painted on the crosswalks as a welcome sign for the city’s largest LGBTQ community. It’s a neighborhood for everyone as people with colored hair...

Seattle Neighborhood Spotlights: West Seattle

You might not know this, but West Seattle was the original Seattle. Could you imagine the Space Needle and downtown high-rises a few miles southwest of where they are now?! It almost happened! We often mention the story of how the Denny Party settled West Seattle in 1851 on our Duck Tours. What they soon found is that it didn’t make for the best city (they needed a deeper bay and better tides) so...

In almost any city you’ll find the bustling heart of Downtown is the main financial and shopping hub. The same can be said for Seattle… except that we’re SO much more than just a blur of people and cars! Stroll a few blocks in each direction to discover what makes our city so unique. There’s bound to be a coffee shop every few storefronts. Craving sushi? Maybe Italian? There’s a restaurant for that just...
