    My first game at Citi Field.

    Hi all,

    I'm coming over from Australia and will catch the Mets series against the Royals. Any suggestions on the best seats (I'm not really concerned about price) and must do's ?

    Best bang for your buck is the upper deck (Promenade Infield) behind either the first or third base lines or even home plate. You'll have a clear view of the field, as opposed to many of the higher priced tickets lower down.

    Whatever you do, do not buy the tickets directly from the Mets. Buy from Stub Hub a day or two before the game.

    You might have been able to do that at Shea Stadium but doubtful you pulled that off at Citi Field. Each section has many ushers and guards checking for tickets constantly. Very difficult to move down at this park.

    In the category of "must-do:"

    -Get a shake at Shake Shack (behind the video board).

    -I might even argue that should get something from Box Frites while you're there.

    -If you've been following the Mets for a while, before you go into the stadium, go see where the diamond was for Shea Stadium (in the parking lot outside of third base).

    -Once you get in, go see the Mets Museum/Hall of Fame.

    It contains all of the memorabilia from the franchise's greatest moments.

    Ok, so they had an extra broom closet that wasn't being used.

    That's my fave feature in Citi Field. I love walking out there and remembering where I was sitting during so many historical Met games that I was lucky to attend.

    Re: Shake a Shack: Get there early or be prepared to watch most of the game on the big screens while you wait in line.

    I thought they might have Jay Horowitz hanging up on a hook or something.

    Honestly, just get there like 2 hours or so before the game and just walk around - the place has an amazing atmosphere and is actually really good for just meandering. You'll be able to catch BP, get anything you want at the shake shack in a short amount of time, etc.

    I wouldn't recommend buying tickets at the Pepsi Porch (Left Field Upper Deck) but if you get the chance walk over there and watch the game from that point of view for an inning, just a cool place to check out.

    After the game, you can easily take the train into the city and go to the Empire State Building. It is open 365 days a year till 2 A.M. and it just adds to a good night.

    Have fun and be sure to tell us about your experience! I always like hearing about people experiencing things for the first time that I already love.

    And my personal favorite seats is roughly 15 rows up and about even with 1st base on the 1st base side.

    If Price isn't a concern I'd suggest buying seats right around the 3rd base foul line.

    I've sat all over the place in Citi. From right behind the home on deck circle, to behind home plate, to the 3rd base foul line to the first row behind the right field wall.

    The foul line seats are the best value and have a great view and you have a good chance of getting a ball and/or autograph.

    If price isn't a concern, how about buying the team?
