Anyone planning on visiting Seattle to see the Jets play the Seahawks, please respond in this thread. Im looking at reserving some blocks of rooms at downtown hotels, including the one where the Jets are staying.

We are also putting together plans for a tailgate as close as possible to Century Link Field.

We will have tickets available as well (A limited number of discounted tickets will be available)

If you have kids, Century Link Field is a Family Friendly stadium. Most local fans are friendly. Just don't start shouting F-Bombs, because they can and do throw people out for that.

If you are making the trip, try to plan a couple days in town, as there are a lot of things to see and do.

Mt. Rainier
Pike Place Market (The Original Starbucks)
Tillicum Village (So worth going to)
Pubs and more pubs
Sci Fi and EMP museum
Pacific Science Center
Space Needle
Snoqualmie Casino
Skiing at Mt. Baker (very possible to have snow at that elevation)
The U district
The Fremont Troll

Seattle is a city with lots of things to do and there is always something going on.

Count me as a definite "maybe". Pikes Market and the jumbo prawns with roe hanging off their bellies (like most of the crew here) is all the sightseeing I need. Group seating? Or will we be scattered?

It's all fun and games until someone loses an eye. Then it's just fun.

Im working on group seating, and so far like the numbers I am getting from the Seahawks.

We live about 15 minutes from the city and plan on a room at the Grand Hyatt. (the hotel where the Jets will be staying)

We may be able to work a deal, we stay at the hotel and you stay at our house and take care of the Chihuahuas :)

I'll be in for two tickets.

I'm taking the rail from the airport to downtown so we won't have a car. Does the rail or bus go from downtown to the stadium?

Also the stripclubs in Seattle suck compared to S Florida.

24 hours in a day, 24 beers in a case. Coincidence? I think not.

Yes it does. Once you are downtown, you can take the tunnel from Westlake to the Stadiums and Pioneer Square.

One thing I haven't done yet, but is supposed to be cool is the Underground Tour.

Great that makes it cheap as hell to get back and forth to the stadium.

The rail there is quiet and clean compared to ny and miami. I did see a guy dancing in only his underware on the platform in 28 degree weather but outside of that nothing really interesting.

You are better off in the downtown area, and take the tunnel to the stadium, and tailgate.

Tailgating will be taken care of. If you have any tips or suggestions, that would be appreciated though.

Hmmmm, the 2 most important things I have learned,
1) make sure the beer is ice cold!
2) don't forget the propane tank at home

I started designing a website with information about Hotels, the tailgate, things to see and do in Seattle Etc. If you want to be in a location with easy access to everything in Seattle, I recommend the Westin. Its across the street from the Monorail to Seattle Center and the Bus tunnels to the Stadium, tailgating etc. If you want to check out the South Lake Union area, just go across the street and ride the SLUT to Lk Union. The Waterfront and Pike Place Market are also very close by.
