Seattle's stadiums are far from isolated; everything from great shopping to dinner cruises are within walking distance of the city's baseball stadium. After taking in a Mariner's game, take a little stroll – there's plenty of things to do near Safeco Field.
Like Qwest Field, for the rabid sports fan who can't get enough. Tours of Qwest bring up into locker rooms, VIP rooms and right out onto the field.
Looking for more culture? Head up to 1st Avenue toward the "Hammer Man," the giant statue guarding the entrance of the Seattle Art Museum. For kids who love both baseball and music, the Soundbridge Music Discovery Center includes a real instrument "petting zoo" where kids can try out violins and french horns for themselves.
Pioneer Square, the city's historical district, is the home of Safeco Field and filled with fun things to do. Like the antique mall, the countless bookstores and the rather hilarious Underground Tour. Or stroll down Alaskan Way along the Waterfront for some fish and chips at Ivar's, the tackiest souvenirs imaginable at Ye Olde Curiosity Shop, or a few games at the arcade.
If it's a meal you're after, keep heading up 1st Avenue to Pike Place Market, or take a dinner cruise on the Puget Sound with Argosy Cruises.
