      Bill Speidel's Underground Tour takes you on a walking tour beneath the streets of Seattle to learn about the city's vibrant past, including some rather shady characters < and shenanigans. It's a history of a terrible fire that destroyed much of the city, and the comically inept efforts to rebuild it by building the muddy streets up 20 feet higher than the sidewalks, and having to use ladders to cross the street./div>

      If you go:
      Take comfortable shoes, this is a 3-block tour. Stairs are involved. Parking in Seattle is challenging, especially in this part of town - it's unlikely that you'll find street parking for this long, so plan on paying for a lot or garage or taking public transit. Tour is 90 minutes. All ages allowed, but young children may get bored. (A special adults-only version of the tour is available that gets a little more off-color.) Do not plan on using your cell phone during the tour - the guide will scold you!
