    Flushing Meadows, Queens - US Open

    by mrclay2000 Written Dec 22, 2003

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    stadium at the USTA Tennis Center

    The US Open occurs at the USTA National Tennis Center each summer, one of the four venues for Grand Slam Tennis. Popularly called Flushing Meadows in association with its geographic location, the tennis event carries the richest purse in professional sports, with over $16 million in prize money awarded in 2003. The tennis stadium and subsidiary courts are a short walk from Shea Stadium and will forever be associated with the famous champions from New York, John McEnroe and Jimmy Connors.

    US Open Tennis

    Sunset over court 10

    While this isn't active sports- (unless you're one of the professionals playing in the tournament) it's a great place to view the world's best tennis players in action. Even if you can't get seats for the stadium action, a grounds pass will enable you to watch games on all the outer courts.
