No college football stadium in the country has what Husky Stadium boasts - a breathtaking view of Lake Washington and the Cascades and the ability to literally sail to the game. You don't have to be a UW grad or even a Husky fan to enjoy a game here. When the sun is out in early fall and the team is pummeling some hapless Pac-10 competition, there's no better place to be in Seattle.
While they don't sell beer inside, you can easily pick up a drink in the hospitality tents outside or among the undergrad hordes in the north parking lots. You'll want to bundle up as the season rolls along and some bitter winds whip across the lake, and until the light rail construction is finished in 2016 the traffic in the area will be even worse than normal on game days. An upcoming renovation should jazz up some of the more retro elements like the old-school bleacher seating.
But the Stadium's location, aura and history remain constant throughout the cosmetic facelifts. And now that the team is actually good, you can spend some time admiring the on-field product as well.
Pros: One of the all-time best places to catch a football game
Cons: Your backside will hate you; cold days are brutal; no beer!
