March Madness is already underway—although we have to admit that the true craziness doesn’t begin until Thursday. There’s still time to finalize your brackets and make your picks—for entertainment purposes only of course. Watching the games unfold from the comfort of your cubicle is fine, but in person is much better. Here’s just three options to get you there, so you can enjoy it all in person in New Orleans.
Premiere Sports Travel
You better act quickly, because as of this morning there was only one more option left through the folks at Premiere Sports Travel. Get your credit card ready—and make sure there’s room—because the Deluxe Package doesn’t come cheap. For around $1,600 per person you’ll get access to four nights at the Chateau Bourbon New Orleans, and of course a couple tickets as well.
This package gets you what they’re calling upper level behind the basket tickets—better than noting—as well as transportation to all three of the Final Four games. They’re even throwing in a couple souvenirs as well as a welcome reception on Friday afternoon to sweeten the deal.

If you’re still missing all those last-second buzzer beaters and other March Madness craziness, you’ve got quite some time until 2012 rolls around. However, you can always get a head start on next year by trying to score some tickets well in advance.
Tickets to next year’s Final Four in New Orleans don’t really ever go on sale to the general public, as you need to be lucky enough to be selected in advance for the opportunity to purchase your own. Once the tournament finally rolls around, your chances of getting a face value ticket are slim to none, so that’s why we’re suggesting that you act now.
Your bracket has been busted, but that doesn’t mean that you won’t be tuning in this evening to check out the men’s NCAA championship game in Houston. However, once it’s over, things always become somewhat of a downer. Sure the winning team is excited, but fans like us get a little depressed without the thrill of the buzzer beater, so that’s why we’re suggesting a trip to the National Collegiate Basketball Hall of Fame.
The hall of fame is just one part of the College Basketball Experience in Kansas City, Missouri, so if strolling down memory lane gets a little boring, you can always hit up some of the place’s interactive displays.

We know there were some other games the other day, but the real March Madness starts this afternoon. Sure skipping work to watch the games is fun, but it would be even better to leave work and not come back until April. If that’s your plan—and we don’t see why it shouldn’t be—here are three Final Four packages to get you to Houston:
· Sports Traveler
The folks at Sports Traveler won’t judge your bracket, so don’t feel ashamed if your picks didn’t get you too far in your office pool. However, they will judge your credit card, as you’ll need to shell out some serious cash for one of their vacation packages. For roughly $1,900 per person you’ll get four nights at the St. Regis Hotel, a four-day rental car, and tickets to all three games. Just don’t expect courtside seats, as these are upper level options behind the baskets. If you want to upgrade to the lower level seats just throw down another $2,400 per person—oof.
This year has not been good for our sports gambling habit, and the men’s NCAA basketball tournament is not making things any better. We’re surprised our bracket hasn’t just been totally canceled, because at this point there’s no point in wasting the effort to tally up our final score. Despite our misfortunes, we’d still like to go check out the tournament’s last few games, and even though we didn’t plan anything in advance there are options. Here’s 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 person—assuming two people—you’ll be resting up at the Crowne Plaza Indianapolis Airport. It’s not that close to the action, but you’ll get transportation to Lucas Oil Stadium for the games. The price of the package includes five nights accommodations and Terrace Level Side Court tickets. It’s not the best vantage point, but it’s cooler than watching on TV.
