Possible Trip

Me and a buddy are considering the following trip in the Fall ;

Drive from Kingston to Philly to try and catch a Flyers game and an Eagles game. ( Sat. night, sun. afternoon) Also try to get into Atlantic City and New York City . I think Philly is around 6hrs from Kingston, what are the other driving times from Philly. Also, to get tickets for the games , do you have to try to get them as soon as they come available ? Any info. will help,

Thanks

Kingston = 6hours
AC = 1hour (depends on traffic, fall shouldnt be too bad)
NY, NY = 1.5 - 2 hours (depends on traffic)

Would Thursday a.m. to Monday be too much ??????? I live in Winnipeg and want to see the Eagles and Flyers this year, Would catch the FLyers in Minny and Eagles in K.C., But I could kill all birds at once. Plus see NYC and Atlantic City !

AC and NY are in opposite directions. AC is an hour south of Philly, and NY is 90 minutes to the north.

Tickets to the Eagles will be hard to come by.

Yeah you would have to try and get those through a ticket broker or online.

Really, we like to gamble and usually every 2 years hit Vegas. So you figure AC would be a let down compared to Vegas. Are Eagle scalped tix out of control, would say $100 u.s. get you tix pretty easily ? Thanks for all info guys .

Go to the Las Vegas strip, point in any direction and drive 20 minutes, that's what AC is like

Kingston to Philly is probably about a 7 hour trip. And $100 might get you one nosebleed ticket to an Eagles game. Be prepared to pay through the nose.
