Default Visiting Seattle

Hi all,

After some advice if anyone can help.

I'm visiting Vancouver next September and hoping to pop across the border and visit Seattle as I believe it is only 150 miles ish.

Hoping to catch a Seahawks and mariners game as stadiums are next door.

Any advice on getting tickets, places to stay, things to do etc?

Thanks in advance.

The I5 (which is the highway between Canada and Seattle/Tacoma) can be a horrible road if your not an experienced driver. At one point it is 6 lanes with three separate turn offs.

Seattle itself is also difficult to get around. It is full of one way systems and it is very easy to get turned around. The good news is there is a considerable amount of street parking relatively near the stadium district that is extremely affordable.

Mariners tickets are dead easy to get. 95% of games you can just turn up at game time and buy on the gate. I normally wonder down a little early and get one from a scalper which are a little more expensive (maybe 10-15%) but you can often get stellar tickets. My last game (September this year) I was 8 rows back on 3rd base and it cost less than $40 dollars.

Seahawks tickets are more difficult to get hold of and usually I would suggest organizing that before you go across. If your alone though there can be some very good deals to be had by buying off people with spare tickets going into the game.

When we went to Seattle, we stayed at a place called Hotel 5, modern, good location, with a great doughnut place just down the road. Tickets were not difficult to come by, depending on what you are willing to pay.

If I remember right, it was around $150 a night for a king double.

Also stayed at Hotel 5. A 25 minute walk to the stadium.

There's a nice pizza place if you walk 3 blocks north and right at the triangle (A Pizza Mart Belltown).
