Top 5 Things to Do in Seattle After the Kenny Chesney Concert

Imagine this: You’ve just won the contest to see Kenny Chesney live in Seattle and you and your friend have given up containing your excitement for the concert, dinner in the Space Needle, and tickets to the Seattle Aquarium. Then, in the midst of daydreaming about all the fun you are going to have, you realize that you also just won $500 spending money! But what should you do with it? Here are five things to get you started:

Pike Place Market

 
 

What's a trip to Seattle without stopping at this famous farmer's market? Pike Place overlooks the Elliot Bay waterfront and is one of the oldest public farmer's markets in America. And trust me, it's not lacking in entertainment! If you go to Pike Place, you are guaranteed to see everything from fish throwers to street musicians, endless merchants, and a wall full of gum.

The Seattle Great Wheel

 
 

This giant Ferris wheel just opened in Seattle during the summer of 2012 and is already a popular addition to the city's skyline. The Seattle Great Wheel is made of 42 fully-enclosed gondolas and can hold over 300 passengers!
As it rotates, the ride extends to almost 40 feet beyond the pier into the bay. Rides are only $13 (plus tax) per adult, and it is open year-round.

Shop 'Til You Drop

 
 

Seattle has excellent shopping all over the city. Right in downtown Seattle, you'll find a shopping square with several big-name stores, like Nordstrom and Urban Outfitters. Also downtown are two large malls called Westlake Center Plaza and Pacific Place. In Pioneer Square is the original Starbucks and some of Seattle's best shopping. Go crazy with that $500!

See a Show

 
 

Even though you will already get to see Kenny Chesney on this exciting trip of yours, Seattle has a ton of other shows to offer as well! Choose from broadway musicals, plays, concerts, stand-up comedy, dance, or even a Cirque du Soleil. Seattle is a hub for live entertainment, and you'll want to take in as much as you can while you're there.

Check Out the Nightlife

 
 

After a long day of sight-seeing and concert-going, you will want a refreshing adult beverage to wind the night down (or up)! When the concert gets out at Century Link field, walk across the street to grab a pint and a bite to eat at Pyramid Alehouse, Brewery & Restaurant. From there, be sure to wander down the street to Cowgirls. This bar has a Coyote Ugly-like atmosphere, complete with girls in cowboy hats dancing on the bar!
