Oh c'mon, of course Seattle is still celebrating. Anyone who wants in on the craziness that erupted after the Seahawks victory over the Denver Broncos in Super Bowl XLVIII on Sunday should head to Seattle for the big doings.

The Welcome Home Victory Celebration Parade is set for 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Wednesday, where an expected 250,000 fans and spectators will be able to see the players and celebrate. The parade will start on 4th Avenue south of Denny Way and continue all the way down 4th until it heads west and south to end at the city's CenturyLink Field, according to the city.

The downtown area will be jammed, and parade-goers are urged to carpool or take public transit. "The country's eyes are upon us, let's honor our team's great win and take care to not do anything that would detract from their outstanding achievement," a Seattle.gov post says.

If you plan on staying two nights, Visit Seattle has a host of hotels with best available rates starting as low as $109 a night. (I checked availability and found a room with two queen-sized beds and free Wi-Fi for Wednesday and Thursday nights at the downtown Hotel Five for $195 a night, plus tax. The rate was available at the hotel's website too.)

After the parade, just enjoy the city's afterglow of its team's first Super Bowl victory ever. Here's an easy online way to plan a two-day itinerary, whether you're going to the Chihuly Garden and Glass or looking for artisan salumi. Go to www.2daysinseattle.com.
