Whether you are a tennis fan or just an occasional observer, the US Open is an event not to be missed. As another reviewer said, it is something you "should plan to go to ....at least once in their lifetime." The complex is amazing! Perhaps it's the history of the NY Worlds Fair and what remains to this day for... More

The National Tennis Center is located on the former grounds of the 1965 NY Worlds Fair (I happen to have attended it as a 9 year old child), the complex is impressive, as its two iconic venues, Louis Armstrong and Arthur Ashe stadium are impressive venues. The US OPEN Tennis tournament is one of those events that qualify for anyone's... More

Every tennis watcher should plan to go to the US Open at least once in their lifetime. The seating in all the courts are good, even Arthur Ashe stadium. I was afraid that I would barely be able to make out the play sitting high up, not a problem at all, if you have good vision or wear glasses. If... More

I have been going to the US Open for years and I have to say that every year, it's a new experience. Some years the people who work there are friendly and helpful; some years they could spit in your eye. Considering most fans are paying a decent price to attend, a little consideration for the fan experience shouldn't be... More

Hot, fun day in the city. Wish people would move quickly up and down the stairs and not linger and block the view ... But overall the tournament is great! Good vegetarian options too were appreciated - best I've found at a major sporting event

If you are a tennis lover... and you are in september in NY... You should go to a match at the Arthur Ashe Stadium. It's simply the best stadium I've ever been to...

It was all I thought it would be and more. A little rough when dodging either extreme heat or rain but overall an incredible tennis experience.

I live nearby and go every year the first of second night when the tickets are inexpensive. Food way overpriced. Large tennis area used only two weeks for the US Open

We had prepurchased our tickets. We attended 3 days sessions and 1 night session. I was a little put off that for the night session they would not even let you into the grounds to shop or eat until 1 hr before the match. Lots of people, lots of fun!

Do yourself a favor and go to the US Open one year. Even if you're not a fan of tennis, the environment here is great!
