Travel options to see the Colts continue their playoff run
INDIANAPOLIS (WTHR) — Plenty of Colts fans are planning to hit the road for Kansas City to see the boys in blue face off against the Chiefs in this weekend’s playoff game.
If you’re driving, it’s just over a seven-hour trip from at Lucas Oil Stadium to Arrowhead Stadium and it’s a pretty straight shot west across Interstate 70.
But if you’re not in the mood to drive that far, there are plenty of other options. The Greyhound bus can take you there and back, which will run you about ten hours and $100 each way. If you want to take the scenic route, Amtrak can get you there by connecting in Illinois for about $250 round trip.
Flying is the most expensive option. The cheapest flights we found are about $550 and those still have a connection in Chicago. Which ever way you decide to go, travel experts say the sooner you figure it out, the better.
“The sooner you book, the more openings there will be, so if people are planning to head to Kansas City, they should get right on it!” said Christen Oganowski, who is a travel advisor at Greenwood Travel.
We’ve been keeping an eye on ticket prices for the last couple days. Even just from Sunday to Monday, the costs are going up.
On StubHub, the cheapest seats are about $117, which is up from about $100 apiece that we saw on Sunday. Those seats are in the upper decks. If you’re looking to splurge and see all the playoff action up closer, you can get a seat in section 101, which is right behind the Colts bench, for about $350.
Once you’re in Kansas City, there are plenty of other things to do for fun. Oganowski suggests the Power and Light District, which has lots of different bars, for adults. There’s also a popular arcade geared toward adults called Up Down.
If you’re bringing the family, Union Station is great. Plus there’s also an aquarium and a World War I museum, among other attractions.
