Now that you’ve figured out where you’re going to go, where you’re going to stay, and how you’re going to get there for your 30 Plus Teams Tour , let me share a little tips before you head off to Philadelphia to see Benjamin Franklin , Rocky, The Liberty Bell and that Philadelphia Eagles football game .
Some of these things are just common sense .
First of all RESEARCH ! RESEARCH ! RESEARCH !
It doesn’t matter if it’s you and the family , you and the guys or girls , or you by yourself , check out where you’re going to stay, what mode of transportation you’re going to take, etc .
Read all the reviews you can, not only for the place where you’re going to stay, but the attactions you want to see as well.
You can even read the reviews for the arenas and stadiums where the game is being held.
Speaking of which , what about those tickets ?
Where will you get those from?
Don’t even think about going to see a scalper for those tickets on the day of the game.
First of all , it’s illegal and shouldn’t that have been one of the first things you did, buy those tickets ?
Secondly , are those tickets legitimate ?
You don’t want to ruin the real reason that you’re in Atlanta by having bogus Atlanta Hawks basketball tickets .
Stick to who you know and trust .
The most obvious choice is the team’s own website .
You might be lucky and pick a game that’s either half priced or it’s giveaway night.
(Steph Curry bobble head night in Oakland ! )
When you all go to the arena, an usher will scan your ticket .
If it’s a bogus ticket, NO BODY is getting in and SOME BODY who wanted to impress the family and friends is going to be very embarrassed .
Now, what if you’re traveling with the family on a bus , train or plane, what do you take to get to your hotel or hostel ?
You could take a taxi , which is expensive .
You could take an airport shuttle or if your hotel has their own shuttle , take that.
You also could take public transportation , no matter if you take the bus, train, or plane..
The only downside to this is what if the bus, train, or plane is no where near your destination and you have to walk to the hostel or hotel ?
The luggage is heavy, your friends are tired , and so are you .
Not to mention those “are we there yet ? ” looks you’re getting from the kids and adults .
Now, let’s say it’s just little old you down in Indianapolis going to that Indiana Pacers basketball game because no one else wants to go with you.
Scary thought , hun?
No, not that you’re going to Indiana , it’s the fact that you’re going by yourself .
Not really because STAYING HOME IS NOT AN OPTION !
Go see that basketball game by yourself .
If this is your 30 Plus Teams Tour , don’t let anyone steal your thunder whether you’re going to see the Thunder play basketball in Oklahoma City or be the Thunder at a Lightning hockey game down in Tampa .
If you want to sit next to or near Jack Nicholson at a Lakers basketball game in Los Angeles or sit in “celebrity row” at Madison Square Garden in New York City , why not if you can afford to roll like that.
Forget the fact that you had to work a lot of overtime and that on many occasions you went to work very sick just so you could see your team play, guess what ?
This is your 30 Plus Teams Tour .
You want to see some sports action live and in person , whether it’s your favorite team or not .
Just be mindful of your surroundings when you go .
Ask the front desk clerks the best and easiest way to get to and from the arena .if you’ve been in town for a few days before the game , take a trial run on how to get to the stadium .
Do your research , people and enjoy yourselves .
