Summer in Seattle--Kenmore Air Seattle Flightseeing

Greetings denizens of the Seattle microchasm and the world at large! I have arisen from the ethers of Capitol Hill to bring you more tales from my Summer in Seattle!


I recently was given the opportunity to take a flying tour of Seattle, courtesy ofKenmore Air. This seaplane tour takes off from South Lake Union and flies all around Seattle, Redmond, Bellevue, and more to give a birds-eye perspective on this fair city and its suburbs.

Read on to find out if there truly is pie in the sky.

Really, this entire tour can be summed up quite simply: It was awesome.



We flew over downtown Seattle, Mercer Island, Bellevue, and Redmond. Every step of the trip a helpful, GPS-activated automaton told us facts and random tidbits about the areas we flew over.


It was unbelievably cool to see the mansions planted in the sides of hills, huge parks, and the sprawling acres of the Microsoft campus all from above.


I really can’t recommend this tour enough. If you have some relatives in town and you can spare the cash, this is a great way to appreciate the beauty of the Seattle area.


Because after all, nothing like this would have been worth my time back in Louisiana. All there would have been to see would be flat + green + water + occasional suspicious shack.

And I mean really, what is the point of a suspicious shack if you can’t find out what’s inside?

If my pictures weren’t enough to sate your craving for high-altitude city tours, take a ride on an Kenmore Seaplane for yourself and find out what the fuss is about.


Many thanks to Kenmore Air for the ride!

Come back soon to read more about my Summer in Seattle!
