A TRIP TO THE US OPEN IS ACES! FREE EVENTS, EXCITING MATCHES, FOOD GALORE AND MORE—RIGHT FROM OUR BACKYARD IN QUEENS
Only in New York does an Olympic-sized event happen every year. That’s four times the Olympics! And it’s just minutes away. The US Open, one of the biggest events in the world of tennis, will once again be packed with a full schedule of events that runs more than a week long (August 25 – September 8).
Beyond the matches themselves, featuring the biggest stars of the tennis world like Novak Djokovic, Petra Kvitova and the Williams sisters, the US Open offers live music, multiple dining and drinking options, and even a beautiful fountain with a Ben & Jerry’s and Heineken Café right next door. It’s an Olympic-sized vacation with only a fraction of the travel!
From the free Qualifying Tournament and Open Practice Day to Finals Weekend and Grounds Admission passes, there are options for everyone. And speaking of options, all of this is really easy to get to, considering how accessible the US Open is from the city. The 7 train runs from Grand Central to Mets-Willets Point Station ($2.50/one-way), or you can take the Port Washington Line from Penn Station ($8.00/one-way peak hour; $5.75/one-way off-peak hour). Directions and tickets to the US Open can be found at usopen.org, which includes the full list of events that’ll help you join this annual Olympics-style party.
