Woodland Park Zoo and Seattle Duck Tours
Seattle Travel Blog› entry 10 of 14 › view all entries
We were up early this morning, Maybe a little to early, still adjusting to the time change. We were up at 6:30 this morning ready to go. Ate breakfast at the hotel and then it was off to the zoo. Caught bus #5 North to Woodland Park Zoo. We got there a little quicker than exspected and had plenty of time to goof off. We stopped at Starbucks for some coffee.
The zoo opened at 9:30 and using our CityPass we were in quickly. I was suprised how many families were here on a Friday morning and with it only being in the 40's. The zoo is layed out very nicely and broken into many different areas. Temperate Forest, Tropical Forest, African Savanna, Tropical Asia, Austrlasia, and Northern Trail. Our favorite was the Nothern Trail with it's Steller Sea Eagles and Grizzly Bears.
We left around 12;30 and hopped back on the #5 back into Seattle. We wanted to see the Freemont Troll but it is under construction. We had lunch at McDonalds and decided to take the Seattle Duck Tours. Which turned out to be a blast thanks to our hilarius Captain. It's starts off as a land based tour of Pike's Place, Pioneer Park and across the Aurora Bridge into Freemont and into Lake Washington for a boat ride. We had great views of Downtown Seattle, Space Needle, and Gas Works Park. Our Captain was very imformative and everyone had a great time. The tour lasted 1 1/2 hours and cost $28.50 per person. The Duck Tours are located next to the Space Needle.
We headed back to the hotel cold and tired. I uploaded my photos and it's off to bed. We are heading out to the Capital Hill District for a little party time tonight.. Three Olives Cake with Sprite....Woo Hoo!!
