The NCAA Tournament is the year's greatest event for couch potatoes -- there's just nothing like wall-to-wall basketball from noon to midnight. But even if you've got one of those HDTVs the size of a stadium jumbotron, it just isn't the same as being there. And in 2012 there's a bonus - the Final Four host city is New Orleans - one of America's top tourist destinations.

Plan your trip now and experience the 2012 NCAA Tournament in person.
