    Now the light rail goes all the way to the airport so you can be downtown in about 35 minutes for about $2.50.

    what a great website. I am looking at booking a flight with a midnight-5am layover in Seattle so that I can at least take a couple hour ride on or something around Seattle to get a look at the city.

    thinking taking the light rail downtown get off and the take it back to airport.

    Or will staying on light rail and not getting off give me a look at the city.

    Any suggestions for that time of day? Thanks
