Most sports fans know that travel tours are unnecessary and overpriced and most travel agents could not tell you the difference between the Giants (NY) and the Giants (SF). Now you may be an expert for your own team and stadium, but when it comes to taking a road trip, big or small, sports fans are usually left with the difficult task of piecing together their own travel. The problem is that you probably have another job and have better things to do than to map out the places to eat, drink and stay while traveling to another city.
That’s where we come in. “Have Game Will Travel” specializes in sports tourism and travel by wading through all of the details of your entire sports experience. From initial planning, to buying tickets, to restaurant and bar recommendations, we bring you an edited selection of details that will take all of the questions out of your sports trip. Learn the best boondoggling techniques to make a sports trip out of any type of traveling. Read tips on planning the ultimate sports trips even with the wife. These tools will guide and teach fans the ways to make their sports dreams into sports trips.
But the true benefit of the site rests in enabling our readers to dream up their own “fan” adventures and learn how to make these trips come true with practical and economical “insider tips.”
