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.

This is a nice thing to do. Took the train to see the view from the bridge over the river. It stops at the farmers market and returns you back to the other side of the river.
