I grew up in NYC, but never went to the US Open while living there. I went for the 1st time with a few friends and had a wonderful time. We stayed in Midtown Manhattan and took the train to Flushing Meadows every day. Its @ 45 min each way, but easy to get there and awesome people watching on... More

Lots of different ethic food is available, as well as old stand by burgers, fries and pizza. Food is mediocre to good, buy you're here to watch the matches, and not be subjected to "fine dining" ..... Have a beer, relax and enjoy the match.

A great place to experience all different levels of tennis. Amateur, professonal. singles, doubles - worth the expense even if sitting in the nosebleed section if you consider yourself a true fan. Make sure you check out the other matches on the numerous courts & mingle with the rest of the world in between!

If you are nuts about tennis, the US Open is a must! Just being on the grounds is an experience in itself. Walking on the boardwalk, excitement brewing, arriving at the tennis center...it's beyond words. Your bound to run into a celebrity and you will witness history unfolding with some of the high-level tennis you'll undoubtedly see!

great atmosphere, plenty of tennis to watch, even if you don't have a ticket for the main court , you can watch from two large screens the main matches, lots of people , lots of tourists from other parts of the US and abroad. A little bit too commercial at times(like selling the program for the day!) but it's the... More

If you like Tennis, the US Open doesn't fail to impress. Go during the September long weekend and stay a couple days longer is my suggestion. General Admission tickets until the Monday are great, you get to see top 20 and even some top 10 players in action with access to all courts with the exception of Arthur Ashe. Aside... More

We went to US Open 2012. It was amazing. I absolutely loved everything about these grounds. Location: The tennis center is pretty easy to get to. You can hop on an over ground train and it will drop you off right in front of the entrance. Cheap train tickets and so you have no worries about parking a car or... More

One can get dizzy in some of these seats so get your tickets early.Love the Armstrong Stadium as much...smaller than Ashe. You can see the players up close and personal. Ashe is a beautiful stadium, easy to get around. Bring money!

Have just had our first trip to the US Open and boy what a fabulous treat it was. We were there for the mens semi final and throughly enjoyed every aspect of what the open offers. Great place to wander around and check out everything before going in to watch the main matches. Security was a breeze with no waiting... More
