'''Seattle Free Walking Tours''' [http://www.seattlefreewalkingtours.org]. SFWT provides tours of downtown Seattle EVERYDAY. Meet the tour guides in Victor Steinbrueck Park, located at the north entrance of Pike Place Market, at 11am. Tour guides are there rain or shine, so dress for the elements. Guides take every group through Pike Place Market, Post Alley, Pioneer Square, and the historic waterfront. They sample some of the foods from market vendors and give an entertaining history of the city. SFWT is able to eliminate fees by relying on tips and donations alone.
* '''Ride the Ducks Seattle''' [http://www.ridetheducksofseattle.com/main.htm]. A 90-min ride on an amphibious World War II vehicle (yes, part of the ride is on Lake Union), not cheap ($23 adult) and not for those with a limited sense of humor (the style is a bit over-the-top). Definitely unique. 5th Ave. and Broad St., across from the Space Needle. Open-year round.
