Seattle Southside is a sports lover’s paradise!
What’s not to love about sports? In Seattle Southside, we’ve got more than a few ways (and places) to play and watch games. Follow this itinerary for three days of sports and on day four, it’s time to rest. 😉
Start your day off with some golf at Foster Golf Links. Nestled alongside the Duwamish River, this course has been around since 1925. After a massive remodel on the course in 2004, Foster Golf Links quickly became a favorite of local and visiting golfers. After sinking 18 consecutive holes-in-one, grab some grub at Billy Baroo’s Bar & Grill. Mr. Baroo serves up plenty of comfort food and cold drinks for a mighty fine price. Plus, you’ll get great views of the course.
After a long day of golf, head to ACME Bowl for a relaxing (yet competitive) game of bowling.
Finish the day with fun for everyone at this modern bowling alley. Featuring a 10-lane private bowling lounge, a 30-lane traditional bowling alley, an arcade, a billiards area with seven tables, two shuffleboard tables and a full-service restaurant, bar and lounge. This state of the art bowling alley has over 30 lanes, seven billiards tables, shuffleboard, and an arcade. Plus, the friendly wait staff at the Break Room bring hot food and delicious drink concoctions right to your party.
Day two starts with a trip on the Link Light Rail. You guessed it…you’re heading to SoDo for a Mariner, Seahawk, or Sounders FC game. The light rail has three stops in Seattle Southside: Angle Lake, SeaTac, and Tukwila International. It’s about a thirty minute ride to the stadiums from here.
Grab your gear (or purchase some from the team store) and root on the home team at these iconic stadiums. No matter what time your game gets over, you’ll be able to take the light rail back to Seattle Southside. If your game happened to run a little late, fear not. Just down the street from the SeaTac light rail stations sits 13 Coins, an elegant restaurant with a giant menu that just so happens to be open twenty-four hours a day!
Your final day in sports heaven begins at Starfire Sports. This 54-acre sports complex features twelve outdoor fields and two pitches. It’s also the practice field of Sounders FC and Sounders FC 2 and the home field of the Seattle Seawolves, Seattle's first Major League Rugby team. So, depending on what day you go, you might be able to catch an MLS practice or a rugby match! Otherwise, if there isn’t anybody using the outdoor fields, get a group together and enjoy a pick-up game!
Next, fly high in iFLY Indoor Skydiving’s 10-story vertical wind tunnel. iFLY provides the perfect indoor skydiving experience and the best part is: it’s fun for ages 3 to 103. Anybody can experience the thrill of skydiving at iFLY! After iFLY, I would head next door to California Pizza Kitchen to refuel on top notch pizza, pasta, and salad.
Your final stop on the sports adventure takes you into the future. From Call of Duty-like laser tag, to virtual reality, and nerf battles, the reality is—the entire family will have fun with the high-tech fully immersive experiences at Virtual Sports. A great way to end the day.
