Please excuse my recent gondola craze, but here’s a little daydream.
Imagine you have a half day stopover as Seatac and are looking for something to do. The information desk gives you a few tips, and you find this route interesting. Start by hopping on the light rail and riding it to Westlake. Go up the stairs and ride the streetcar. When you get to SLU, transfer to the Galer St. Gondola. After your scenic trip up the hill, explore upper Queen Anne for a bit, then head down the hill via Kerry Park and our historic stairs (or take a trolley bus down, if you prefer). Head to the Seattle Center to look at the fountain and the Space Needle, then hop on the Monorail to get back. Extra time? Check out the Pike Place Market and maybe even the waterfront. If not, hop back on the light rail to the airport.
Man, you think, Seattle has their transportation system figured out.
