FAQ: Going to Anaheim and Honda Center

Where is a good place to grab a beer before the game?

JT Schmids is right across the street from the Honda Center. You will see lots of fans in Ducks jerseys as well as the jersey of the opponent. Lots of plasma screens with hockey and other sports on.

Hooters is a 7 minute walk from Honda Center.

Throwbacks sports bar is a 7 minute drive and 32 minute walk from Honda Center per Google Maps.

Do the Ducks provide any entertainment outside the arena while we wait for the doors to open?

Come out to The Hockey Spot for the pregame activities in Lot 3 on the North side of Honda Center before all Saturday and Sunday home games. The Hockey Spot is open 2 hours prior to the start of the game and welcomes fans of all ages. Gather at The Hockey Spot to participate in interactive hockey games and other family activities.

Can I get into the Jack Daniel's Old No. 7 Club during the game?

The club is a private restaurant available for Club and Suite patrons only. If you buy a club level seat, you are in! The club opens up to everyone after the game, and you can see post-game shows occuring here.

Is there public transportation to get from Los Angeles/Staples Center to Anaheim/Honda Center?

You can look into Metrolink or Amtrak:

It is much easier to just rent a car though.

Where can I get Ducks tickets?

There are lots of websites. Also not a lot of sellouts, so you can buy tickets at the Honda Center box office the day of the game.

What else is there to do in Anaheim?

Need to kill a few hours before the game? There is a Century 25 movie theater within walking distance of Honda Center. There is also a AMC theater at Downtown Disney.

If you have time to do the tourist thing. Disneyland and Disney's California Adventure theme parks are less than a 10 minute drive from Honda Center. Downtown Disney is located in the same place. Places to eat include ESPN Zone and Rainforest Cafe.

There is another theme park 15 to 20 minutes up the freeway in Buena Park. Knott's Berry Farm.

Where should I stay in Anaheim?

There are lots of hotels in Anaheim, shop around on all the travel sites:

The hotel right across the street from the Honda Center is:

Ayres Hotel Anaheim

It's about $120 a night + tax, fees.
