Riverboats that plied the Yukon were one of North America's original systems of mass transit. With today's deal, learn just how rollicking and rowdy those action-packed trips could be. $19 (regularly $39) scores you one ticket on the Queen of Seattle Paddle Wheel Cruises, a replica of an original Alaskan riverboat that offers a cabaret show about the days of the Alaska Gold Rush and the truly wild West.
The trip begins at the south end of Lake Union, and the Queen paddles up the ship canal to the Ballard Locks and back. All the while you'll be well entertained with stories of the Alaska Gold Rush days, while you also learn about the modern sights and stories of one of America's only urban lakes. And just for fun, get to Lake Union on the downtown streetcar - so you can experience mass transit then and now!
