We've heard there's not a huge lot to do in Atlantic City (apart from Gambling, but I'll be just shy of my 21st birthday when I visit), so we plan to come to Philadelphia for a couple of days.
We shall probably come on the 18th, as the 76ers are playing, and it has always been a dream of mine to attend an NBA game.
So, I have a few questions..
Firstly, does anyone know HOW I should go about booking NBA tickets? I tried through NBA's own website, and to not have shipping I clicked on 'print at home' - it lets me select GB as my country, but still wants a zip code from me and a US telephone number. The site says it can ship internationally, but under 'delivery by mail' there is no extra cost, and I am unsure how to let it know I am buying from out of the states. I'd much rather be able to print the tickets at home, rather than spend a lot on international shipping, and risk them not getting here on time.
I also looked at vertex and stubdepot(or stubhub) - but they didn't offer the tickets I wanted that were available on NBA as they are marketplaces. Also, they can electronically transfer the tickets but it sounds a little complicated and at the event I have to show Government Issued ID (will I get a VISA ID of some sort on entrance to the states? I've applied for an ESTA Visa but it doesn't say it comes in a physical form)
Also, any recommendations on where to stay, or what to do?
I'm interested in a few things, I know a fair amount about American history so know a couple of place. I'd also like to do the Rocky steps at the museum.
We'd appreciate any thoughts, suggestions and advice.
Thanks alot!!Edited: 9:56 pm, February 26, 2013
