There's Still Tickets! Last-Minute Packages for the Final Four
This year has not been good for our sports gambling habit, and the menís NCAA basketball tournament is not making things any better. Weíre surprised our bracket hasnít just been totally canceled, because at this point thereís no point in wasting the effort to tally up our final score. Despite our misfortunes, weíd still like to go check out the tournamentís last few games, and even though we didnít plan anything in advance there are options. Hereís a few Final Four Indianapolis vacation packages in case you have some extra cash hanging around the house.
PrimeSport is offering up several packages that include accommodations and tickets, and none of them are really affordable. However, if you think you can siphon a little cash from the checking account without your significant other finding out, there is one option. For $1,695 per personóassuming two peopleóyouíll be resting up at the Crowne Plaza Indianapolis Airport. Itís not that close to the action, but youíll get transportation to Lucas Oil Stadium for the games. The price of the package includes five nights accommodations and Terrace Level Side Court tickets. Itís not the best vantage point, but itís cooler than watching on TV.

If you canít afford to spend too many days away from work, Premier Sports Travel has a package that will ensure you are in and out of Indianapolis as soon as possible. For about $1,025 per person theyíll set you up with a room at the Hampton Inn Indianapolis South. Itís not the ultimate in luxury accommodations, but youíre probably not going to spend too much time in the room anyway. Transfers to the game are included, breakfast is always free at Hampton Inns, and the tickets are on the upper level behind the basket. If your team made it this far, it might be worth giving this option some consideration.
For those that are in the area, or just donít want to be subjected to a package deal filled with unnecessary lanyards and commemorative shirts, Razorgator is offering up single tickets. They are the official ticket outlet for the Final Four, and they appear to have a pretty decent selection of options. Lower level seats for all games start around $650 per ticket, but if you donít mind watching the game on the scoreboard display there are tickets for as low as $255. However, youíll need some luck scoring a cheap flight only a week out, and finding something a little better than the Red Roof Inn to rest your head.
