US Open Tennis
We just can’t get enough of the US Open, especially with all of the fantastic changes that have been made at the Billie Jean King National Tennis Center. There just doesn’t seem to be enough time to watch tennis and explore all of the terrific food, drink, shopping and tennis experiences throughout the grounds. Once again in 2018 (our 29th year of Open trips), you have two great options!
Our first option is our traditional day trip on Thursday, August 30th. We depart at 6:00 AM from Oheb Shalom, enjoy a bountiful breakfast and more en route to a full day of competition on all 22 courts. Experience the brand new 18,000 seat Louis Armstrong Stadium, with more shade, modern bathrooms (we know you won't miss the vintage 1964 ones!) and food concessions. Even better, you are now guaranteed tennis action no matter what the weather with retractable roofs over Arthur Ashe and Louis Armstrong. Rain delays are a thing of the past! After a full and fun day, we’ll hit the road at 6:30 pm, enjoying Happy Hour (open bar, wine, beer and hors d’oeuvres) followed by a delicious deli dinner of your choice and a great movie.
Thursday, August 30@ $312.00 per person
If that isn’t enough for you, join us for our new overnight option. We’ll depart at noon on Wednesday, August 29th. Feel free to bring your lunch with you. We’ll be serving cold drinks and desserts on the bus. Upon arrival in Queens, we’ll check into our hotel, the Holiday Inn LaGuardia, a quick 15 minute walk to the National Tennis Center. Gates open at 6:00 pm for the evening session. Dinner is on your own at one of the delicious food vendors or gourmet restaurants run by New York’s best chefs. You may be lucky to catch the end of some of the day matches on the outer courts, but you’ll want to be sure to be in your seats in Arthur Ashe Stadium for the evening session. It’s been described as one of the most electrifying and best atmospheres in sports with the biggest names in tennis taking the court. You may spend more time watching celebrities than watching tennis! Complimentary shuttles are available when you are ready to head back to the hotel or you can walk the well-lit, safe route back. On Thursday, sleep in, have breakfast at the hotel and then we’ll load our luggage onto the bus and drive together to the tennis center in plenty of time for the beginning of the day session at 11:00 am. The day is yours until 6:30 pm, when we board the coach back to Baltimore. We’ll be serving Happy Hour (open bar, wine, beer and hors d’oeuvres) followed by a delicious deli dinner of your choice and a great movie.
Wednesday, August 29 - Thursday, August 30 @ $509.00 (Single Supplement @ $120.00)
