Go Team! Boatgating at Husky Stadium
As we descend upon college football season (oh, glorious fall football-filled days!), it's time to start planning our pre-game whereabouts. For most, that means tailgating in a parking lot outside the stadium, which is, of course, awesome. Husky fans, however, have an even more awesome tailgating option: boatgating.
Discover Boating, an awareness program from the recreational boating industry, has released a list of the best stadiums for on-water tailgating. Naturally, the newly renovated Husky Stadium made the cut:
University of Washington football fans have the right idea--arrive by boat, moor in Lake Washington, and climb aboard the shuttle boat service to Husky Stadium. The game day views of the Cascades and scenic Lake Washington from this locale are tough to beat. Doors to the newly renovated Husky Stadium open on August 31. Take your own boat or check out the array of charter options in the area, just make sure to get your moorage or charter permit before game day.
The Huskies open against Boise State on Saturday, August 31 at 7:00 p.m. For all the deets on boatgating go here or dial 206.543.4895.
