Default Trips to watch the Browns

Hi all,

Just wondering with the schedule now released is anyone planning any trips to go over and watch some games this year ?
I've been to 4 games over the last 2 seasons, I'm thinking 3 games for this season Bills away then Colts and Bengals at home.

Normally look for back to back home games, such as last year was Bengals, Bills, Lions all at home so 2-3 week trip.
Both times have flown from Manchester to Cleveland via Philadelphia as it tends to work out cheaper.
In terms of experience it was awesome, game day is a different level with tailgating starting at 8am, sitting in the Dawg Pound is a must for atmosphere, even in the hotels downtown everyone is wearing Browns colours.
My trip this year is all confirmed Bills away on 30/11, Colts home on 7/12 and Bengals home 14/12.
My current record watching the Browns live is 3 wins out of 4, so hoping to return home with a record of 6 wins out of 7!!

I flew Manchester to New York then on to Cleveland , only went for 5 days so only saw the one game ( Chiefs ) , managed to visit the hall of fame in Canton though , the game day experience was amazing .. so much different to sporting events in this country
hopefully we'll be going again in the next couple of years .....

Do they do direct flights to Cleveland? Is it a bit of a dump? Any nice surrounding areas?

They dont do direct flights to Cleveland , not from Manchester anyway
Cleveland wasn't a dump at all , it is however only a small city by US standards , and theres not that much to do really , the Cavs Q-arena , Indians & Browns stadiums are all within walking distance of each other , so theyre worth a visit ,
not sure about surrounding areas , Canton looked ok i suppose , nothing special though
