Open May Long weekend to October each year, the streetcar's views of the city and the river are absolutely amazing. This is also the best way to get from the farmer's market to downtown.

It can be kind of hot in the summer, but the view is nice and the tour is a bit interesting, if hard to hear. If you don't have anything better to do, it's worth a trip.
