The Yukon Gold Rush was a pretty important part of history - it meant hundreds of thousands of people changed their whole life in search of fortunes! The Yukon is in Canada, but did you know that it affected places in the USA - like Seattle!
Queen of Seattle Paddle Wheeler Tours are a great way to learn all about that history, AND have a great time on a super fun paddle wheeler! It's like you're going back in time as well as learning about it.
Did you know that the Queen of Seattle is the LARGEST steam powered paddle wheeler west of the Mississippi River? It is - so you can imagine how impressive it will be!
