Short trip in March 2011 - Travelling alone

Hi! I am a 43yr old guy, travelling from the UK (Nottingham) on my own, to see the UFC event @ Key Arena on March 26th. I arrive on the 24th March, & leave on the 27th. I am staying @ Marqueen Hotel. Just looking for some tips for 'must do' & some general do's & donts!

Thanks

If you like music you may enjoy a visit to the EMP/SFM. It is a museum on the grounds of the Seattle Center. I'm a member and go often. You'll just miss the Nirvana exhibit which will open in April.

Seattle is a great town for live music. You can see great artists any night of the week and for very reasonable prices. Two places to look to see what's going on during your trip are:

http://www.seattleweekly.com/music/

http://www.thestranger.com/seattle/Music

There are a number of local music blogs. A few of my favorites are:

http://www.seattlerockguy.com/

http://www.guerrillacandy.com/

http://www.anotherrainysaturday.com/

http://www.ssgmusic.com/

http://www.soundonthesound.com/

I see a lot of live music and have my favorite places so send me a PM if you have any specific questions about clubs and specific styles/types of music.
