Probably good that you have a little experience prior to this trip. I do not envy you driving through NJ/NY.

I have survived a couple of driving vacations in North America, mainly Canada & a few in Florida but something tells me that NJ/NY is gonna be just a little bit different! :unsure:
Oh trust me that will NOT be a problem... I do like my food, and beer! Did I mention beer?
Its gone 8pm here & I think I hear some calling me! :evil:


the Area around the Swamp only rivals LA as one of the worst traffic pits I've ever seen!!!
You have been warned though!!

Bah... the beer here sucks... have real drinks B )

Pay homage to the INCREDIBLE scoring goalie!!!! :-)

I saw CRASHER trip a kid on skates and then he stole the kids lunch money and slapped his mom when she came to pick him up.. All because the kid looked at his crease

For bus, you may actually have to backtrack...

Take the bus from Mill Creek to Port Authority Bus Terminal in NYC and then take the Bus to the CAA. Crazy right?

You may have to take a cab, which may end up costing you about 10 bucks each way. That's about 5 quid for you folks in the UK

Not so bad...

I'm sure the arena ushers can direct you to a taxi after the game. That shouldn't be a problem. Or, perhaps you befriend a few fans after the game, and they can give you a lift for the short 5-minute ride back to the hotel...

It you do consider hiring a car....check out the area on maps.google.com, I have found it incredibly useful for giving me advanced knowledge of the layout of junctions n stuff, and for figuring out what exits to take to get on/off highways. the hybrid and satellite views allow you to actually follow the lanes of the roads. The resolution over the meadowlands area is great too.

Looking at the area, the La Quinta is so excruciatingly close to the arena that you could walk there.....except there are only highway bridges crossing the river :rolleyes: :doh1:

If you do score tickets to the Islanders game, it's really simple to get there from New Jersey.

Just go East through the Lincoln Tunnel, follow your way through Manhattan to the Midtown Tunnel, and then get on Rt. 495. Once you're on Rt. 495 (Long Island Expressway) You'll eventually see signs for Nassau Coliseum, difficult to miss.

Hope your trip goes well!
