I have decided to purchase tickets for Indian Wells 2012, but have no idea about the surrounding area, tips for purchasing tickets for the best experience at the event, and decently priced places to stay. I see that the tournament goes from March 5th-18th, but I would only have a weeks worth of vacation time. So here's my list of questions! (More to come if I think about it) When is the best period of time I should attend the event? (planning on staying for a week) Where can I find the best prices for purchasing tickets? (either online, or anywhere else) Decent hotels close by? Preferably a place that has tennis courts close by in case I get the itch to play.
