I was lucky enough to be selected through the lottery process for Friday 2018 tickets. So excited. I've read through the forums and finding lots of useful information. I'd like to ask a few more specific questions to help plan our trip.
My wife and I are thinking about flying in to either ATL or Savannah on Thursday and staying through Sunday to make a trip of it, even though we just have tickets the 1 day.
1. If we can get a place in Augusta is this the best option? What are food options like, etc? What's it like around town the week of the tourney? I'd love to be in Augusta for those days, even though we are only attending 1 day. Concerned that everything may be overcrowded. I hate to spend the money to be a part of the action, and not be able to find good restaurants, etc. Anyone else going and want to share a house? The only ones we can find are $500-$1000 a night be sleep 6-10 ish
2. If we can't or choose not to stay in Augusta, would Savannah be a good option? We've always wanted to visit Savannah. Flights are the same cost for us to Savannah or Atlanta. Hotels do not look cheap for that week, but this is a bucket list trip for us. We want to enjoy it.
Thanks for any advice.
