Thousands of drivers use Aurora Avenue every day: it's a vital traffic corridor. Yet few understand how a city street can be as controversial as this one. Aurora plays host to a broad and colorful spectrum of Seattle characters. It's been called "visual garbage." But it is also an essential place to people who live in and love, Seattle. Historian Roger van Oosten will give an informative, witty, and fun tour of the heart of Aurora, offering insight into why this historic Mother Road is vital to Seattle's past, present and future.
Note: This will be a two and a half mile walk on a busy, urban thoroughfare. Please bring comfortable shoes and be prepared for busy traffic.
