There are some great options in the United States, but looking outside of the U.S. is aalso a great option. Here are some of the best sporting events to attend, and you will also have a nice little vacation.
The Masters, Augusta, Georgia
We will start the list by looking at a couple of locations in the United States. Weather will become a theme when building up this bucket list, and it doesn’t get much better than August, Georgia, in the middle of April.
The first major golf tournament is the Masters, which is always held at Augusta National in Georgia. There might not be a picture-perfect venue when watching the action on TV, but seeing it in person is something that every sports fan needs to experience.
Rose Bowl Game/Parade, Los Angeles, California
Speaking of weather, a trip to sunny Los Angeles on New Year’s Day will provide one of the best experiences. The Rose Bowl Game is held in LA every year on January 1, and there is no better time to visit.
The football game is the main event, but the Rose Bowl Parade is also one of the best in the World. You will likely want to plan a few days in Los Angeles as there are many other sights and sounds.
Summer Olympics (Paris 2024)
The Summer Olympics occur every four years, and the site changes every time the event is held. Visiting an Olympic city is something that everyone should experience, and the Olympic Committee always picks some great locations.
The 2024 Summer Olympics are set to be held in Paris, France, one of the World’s best cities. You will never run out of things to visit in Paris, and staying in the Summer is perfect.
Winter Olympics (Italy 2026)
The Winter Olympics will give you an excellent reason to travel to a perfect location like the Summer Olympics. There are some concerns with this event, though, as it can sometimes be held in a place that has a horrible climate.
Italy is the host of the 2026 Winter Olympics, and that’s another country that should be high on your bucket list. Even if you don’t plan to attend any of the Olympic games, use this as an excuse to visit one of the best countries in the World.
Pick a Game: Toronto, Canada
Toronto is home to some professional sports teams, giving you hundreds of opportunities each year to visit. Toronto has to be one of the most underrated cities in the World, and it is a location that everyone should travel to at some point.
Watching a sporting event will provide an amazing experience in Toronto, as that city is crazy about sports. Even if you aren’t going to attend a game, visiting Toronto will offer an amazing experience.
The continent of Australia is not home to many major sporting events, but the Australian Open is one of the few exceptions. The best tennis players in the World head down to Australia each year for this event, giving you a perfect reason to visit the “Land Down Under.”
Australia is unique, and you will experience a completely different part of the World. The people of Australia are extremely friendly and welcoming, and they will all be looking for a chance to give you a new experience.
