    You would be able to find a ticket day of but i wouldn't bother waiting to possibly save $20. If you buy now you can even get $60-$70 tickets. In the upper bowl if you're within the first 12 rows it's still a great view of the game. I've sat 19 rows from the field on the home side for $120. No need to wait, get your tickets now and get it off your mind.

    Obviously things are expensive inside but no different than disney. Just go by the tailgate and throw a few bucks at them and chow down before you go in. Phins4ever can tell you all you need to know and is a very gracious host. It'll be worth your time to meet some fellow FH brothers.... plus the tailgate area is exciting and fun.

    you can get a place through airbnb and i have and always stay in Laudererdale by the sea, clean friendly safe and 30 mins or so away from the stadium. i'm planning on going in November as well to watch the Yets game. rent a car or uber it. tickets should be very easy to get on line or on site... unless they surprise everyone and we're 7-0 or 6-1 but that wishful thinking... not very realistic, but you never know...

    Every time I've gone down there for a game or to visit family, I stay in Boca Raton. Affordable, clean, and semi-snooty...only about a half-hour drive to the stadium if you're renting a car. As mentioned above, Deerfield Beach is beautiful as well.

    Regarding tickets, I drove south for Christmas last year, and got tickets to the Jags game for $30-35 (I can't remember exactly) each. I literally purchased them on the trip down. I'm driving down for Thanksgiving this year; we'll catch the Eagles game.

    If you
    I don’t care how much you try to be negative about it, it’s not bad advice. I’ve done it a lot and it works.

    I never said it’s cheap, I just said that if you wait until one hour before you get a much better price. It’s an NFL game, your not getting it for $50.

    It like I said, do some sampling beforehand with other games to get an idea of what I’m talking about.

    He has to buy tickets to whatever game he is going to, might as well try to get the best price.

    I'm sure it does work. Personally speaking, I would prefer to pay a little extra for peace of mind and being able to select seats that I want. Especially if you have a group of say 4 or more. It might be difficult, sometimes, to find seats together for everyone at the last moment.

    I have the same inquiry as the OP.


    I'm flying down to Ft. Lauderdale for the Skins game week 6. (arriving Saturday afternoon departing Monday morning).


    Still trying to get hotel situation taken care of.


    Is there a shuttle that will transport me to "The Rock" or am I better off renting a car during my entire visit?



    Any info is appreciated.

    I've never stayed bc up until last year i lived there so i can't say whether there's shuttles but i have to believe hotels don't shuttle to the stadium. I could be completely off base though.
    If you stay near the interstate you can ride the train (tri-rail). It doesn't stop at the stadium but at the stop closest to the stadium they have charter buses that take you right to the stadium. Paid $5 from Boynton beach. Simply can't beat it...... If they still do it.

    Get a hotel with a continental breakfast and pig out there for free. Wait until after the game to eat. I like to go to Miami Subs after the game (assuming you can wait that long).

    Not sure what your budget is but I’d recommend las olas blvd in Fort Lauderdale . Riverside hotel is in the center if it and you can prolly get a room for around $150 a night a lot of weekends. It’s surrounded by shops, restaurants and bars and there are prolly a dozen places having Sunday brunch with all you can drink specials within a couple of blocks from you.

    It’s about a mile and a half from the beach

    Ya, my cousin, aunt, and a few of my cousins’ kids live there. We usually end up at the Irishmen.
