Need Opinions - Fantasy Football Draft Locations

Postby dgreenan » Mon Feb 22, 2010 1:25 pm

Brand new to the board but figured this would be a good place to post this questions.

Me and 7 of my college buddies have been playing fantasy football for the last 10 years. Each year we go to a different location to do the draft and I'm curious if anyone has some suggestions as to great places to travel to for a fantasy draft.

Places we've been to:

Atlantic City
Jersey Shore
Boston
Miami
Myrtle Beach
NYC
Philadelphia

On the board for this year is:

Montreal
San Diego
Scottsdale
Nashville

Don't be a moron and post Vegas, we don't live under a rock and full well know this is the best place for the draft. We're heading there in two seasons for a combo fantasy draft bachelor party. We'd like to keep it in the US.

Thanks in advanced for the input.

A bunch of us hit up Detroit last year for the final four and I can tell you that unless they tore the whole city down and rebuilt it by the end of August beginning of September there isn't a chance in hell any of us would go back.

Also thanks for the geography lesson on North America. The point of me putting in "We'd like to keep it in the US" was to keep the ideas away from Dublin Ireland or Tokyo Japan. We are all from the east coast and Montreal is a reasonable drive for 7 out of the 8 people in the league.

To the cowboys fan, thanks for the San Diego vote and the link to the hotel. Thats the kind of input I'm looking for. Greatly appreciate it and I'll definitely float that one past the league.

My buddies and I are doing our draft on the MOON this year. Then when we are done we are gonna roll to a strip club on Mars. Top that.

My serious vote is for Chicago.

I love that your league has the ability and is capable of traveling to different areas for a draft festival. I think you may consider keeping with a football theme and go to the city that host the current Super Bowl champions. New Orleans would be a great place to start that tradition. ;-D ;-D ;-D

Welcome to the Cafe, hope you come back during the season and get an advantage on your leaguemates. ;-D

It is a cool Hotel that is on Coronado Island. Pretty cool to cross bridges across the ocean and see Battleships and stuff. Plus there is a ton to do in SD. The hotel even has a Ghost. ;-D

Do your draft in San Diego. You could have your league schedule in a visit to the mini camp for the San Diego Seduction while you are there:

Wow, lighten up, man! Dream was just kidding around. :-b

I would echo the Chicago suggestion, as well as the Hotel Del in San Diego. The Del isn't very close to QualComm if you're interested in going to visit the stadium, but it's a GREAT location, and if you've never been there you won't be disappointed.
