Getting Here & Around


Whether you’re traveling over land (by road or rail), over water or by air, there are lots of ways to get around in Washington State, from the conventional to the anomalous: buses, trains, trolleys, monorail, ferries and high-speed clipper ferries. If you’re visiting Seattle, you can even tour the city by land and water in an amphibious “duck mobile”—a truly unique transportation experience.
