    For UK fans traveling to Boise...

    You're going to have a fantastic time. Boise is a beautiful city with a lot of cool things to do. I recommend visiting Big Al's, it's a really cool sports restaurant with a bowling alley, arcade and of course... tons of TVs to watch basketball.

    Taco Bell Arena is a neat place to watch a game, too.

    Yes, Boise is kind of (really) far from Kentucky, but for those still making the trip - you won't regret it!

    Frontier flies from CVG. $194 round trip. Still takes most of the day to do it due to layovers.
    Delta is around $450 and takes 6 hours.

    You can fly from Cincy to Vegas, and then Vegas to Boise for less than $300 on Allegiant. Forget driving.

    It's an awesome time to be in Vegas. The sports books are full, and lots of fun with people betting on and watching the tourney. I've been once during March Madness, and it was the best of my 7 or 8 trips to Vegas.

    I had a great time as well. My business told me on the Monday of tournament week I had to go to Vegas for meetings on Thurs, Friday and Monday. I had one meeting a day for an hour. All expense paid trip to Vegas for the opening weekend of tourney action. It was awesome. I think my room was like $400 a night because of last minute.

    We were in Boise in 2009, it is a great place, very cool, awesome atmosphere around Taco Bell and the Blue Football Field, and a gorgeous cross atop a mountain overlooking the city.

    Enjoy the high desert.

    Yep, but I know BBN travels well no matter where UK plays. Figure I'd make this post because of that!
