|Cheap tickets for the Miami Open are still available!|
This is a men's and women's combined event with almost all the top 50 players there. In the past, this was known as the Sony Ericsson Open. Think of it as a mini-grand slam over 2 weeks (late March into early April).
Miami Open TicketsUpdated Tips for 1st time viewers:
Bring a MasterCard with your to use the "early access" side lane. It gets you in the gates earlier at 9:30AM before the big crowds.
Between 2PM to 5PM is usually very hot and humid in Miami. Recommend going into the souvenir shops for some shade and A/C. Also the TV viewing area near the avenue leading to the Grandstand has some nice shade under the trees.
Daily Doubles are a good deal if you plan to see both the Day and Evening sessions of a particular date. But if you are there early in the morning, usually the DAY session is all you need to buy to watch 80% of the matches the first week and weekend.
Best matches are probably going to be for the 4th round and Semi's on 3/31 and 4/1.
If you're in the Florida area or thinking of a winter get-away, this is a great location to go.
We recommend flying into Fort Lauderdale (FLL) instead of Miami airport as it is only about 30 mins drive away and much less busy.
Traffic in Miami is very bad this week, as it's the 100th anniversary of Miami Beach and several music festivals going on at once! The General Admissions lot is $15 from near the Seaquarium, with a shuttle bus that takes you another mile to the site. The closer lot is $30, that does not require a shuttle.
Hotels can be very pricey near the beach, and especially on the weekends, so you can try Hyatt with the Offer Code SALESA to enjoy 20% off stays of 2 nights or more and enjoy 25% off stays of 3 nights or more at the participating Hyatt hotels and resorts.
