I'm surprized no one mentioned a UV filter. It's often called a Haze filter. UV light which is invisible to the human eye places a bluish cast on camera pictures. It won't eliminate visible haze but will eliminate the blue added to the image sensor by UV light. I also remember a filter manufacturer that builds a combination polarizer and UV filter for even better control.

Shoot early in the day or near dusk to minimize haze and maximize the gentle low angle light.

I've never tried the USM approach, but I've always had excellent results from just simply adjusting the levels in PS. Usually using the eyedroppers is what works best for me...
