"Basically an access road in SODO"
Much of SODO (Seattle's industrial district SOuth of DOwntown) occurs between South 1st and 4th Avenues. Many of the cross streets have very few retail shops or attractions, with Safeco Field and Quest Field in such close proximity. S. Holgate Street is basically just an access road between 1st and 4th Avenues offering not much more than a furniture store, Goodwill outlet store and plentiful parking lots for stadium events. There is one shop that is worth the trip to the SODO area for something other than a game - The Wine Outlet. On 1st and Holgate, The Wine Outlet stocks wines from around the world, many of them discontinued, for very inexpensive prices. There is parking around the back of the store and on-street parking on 1st Ave. South. The railroad tracks cross much of Holgate, so driving should be taken cautiously.
