Super Bowl XLVIII is just three days away and still has plenty of tickets available. Recently local fans have decided that they want to go to the big game as almost 80% of the traffic on our Super Bowl page has been from New York, New Jersey and Connecticut with current Super Bowl ticket prices averaging $2,754 each after being over $4,000 on Conference Championship Sunday less than two weeks ago. The lowest priced ticket for the game is going for $1,393 but if you want to sit in the Lower Level you’re looking at a minimum priced of $1,803. But with all this talk about the Super Bowl fans are forgetting that there are literally thousands of things to do when you come to New York City. Here are the Top 5 things to do when you come to NYC besides the Super Bowl:
1) Hit Up Broadway:
There is no place on earth that offers such a variety of fantastic plays and shows than Broadway. Three of the biggest shows on Broadway right now are Jersey Boys, Book of Mormon and Wicked are all performing twice a day and have tickets available for all their shows. Jersey Boys tickets are averaging $209, The Book Of Mormon tickets are averaging $234, and Wicked tickets are averaging $269.
2) Catch an NBA Game:
New York is the Mecca of Basketball and no trip to the city would be complete without catching a game here. Luckily both the Knicks and Nets have big home games this week leading up to the Super Bowl with the Nets playing the surging Thunder Friday averaging $237 with a Get-in of $49 and the Knicks hosting the Heat Saturday where Knicks-Heat tickets are going for $466 with a Get-in of $110.
3) The Black Keys @ Roseland Ballroom:
On Friday night the Black Keys will play the historic Roseland Ballroom in New York City. The Black Keys are one of the best live performers you will see and there is no better time to see them than now as The Black Keys tickets have dropped 40% in the past week and are now averaging $259 with a Get-in price of $166.
4) Ranger vs Islanders
These two teams will play for the second time this week but this time they will be in Madison Square Garden rather than open to the elements in Yankee Stadium. Tickets for this instate rivalry are going for $249 with a Get-in of $82.
5) UFC 169
Another option is to see the fastest growing sport in America, Mixed Martial Arts. UFC 169 will be right across the river at the Prudential Center and has an action packed fight card with two title fights. Headlined by Renan Barao vs Urijah Faber for the Bantamweight title and Jose Aldo vs Ricardo Lamas for the Featherweight title, UFC 169 tickets are as low as $27 but are averaging $167.
