Seattle Times letters to the editor

Seahawks game welcomes out-of-town visitors

Downtown proves to be a comfortable environment for tourists

I just had to send a letter congratulating your city after spending the day there along with family on Sunday, Nov. 3. We are from Vancouver, B.C., but visited your city to watch the Seattle Seahawks live at the stadium. We started the day in the Pike Place Market area and then walked to the stadium along 1st Avenue.

We felt really safe. The crowds were having fun and the entertainment (especially the Seahawks Blue Thunder drum band) was a joy to watch. It didn’t matter when the Seahawks were losing, the spectators were still in a good and hopeful mood.

Again, on the return walk back to the Pine Street area, we were impressed by the crowds, their good nature and the beauty of your older parts of the city. You have a lot to be proud of and we will certainly be back.

Graham Hughes, Burnaby, B.C.
