Sporting Events

If you love sports, there is no reason why you can’t arrange your next holiday in the USA around one of your favourite sporting events. Maybe you enjoy American football tournaments - you’re going to love checking out your top teams at their home stadiums! The same goes for those who like ice hockey, basketball and baseball – the US sports that draw-in the crowds. There’s also tennis, golf, soccer and other live sport events that can be a highlight of your holiday - the possibilities are endless and only limited by your imagination.

Indianopolis 500

Perhaps you’ve always wanted to check out the Indy 500? It’s one of the most famous racing events in the world that’s been running for the last century. There are people who haven’t missed a race in decades, and going to see one first-hand could be one of the most exciting things you do this year. Just make sure you book your tickets before arranging travel plans as there are limited numbers available.

The Masters

Golf lovers around the world always watch the Masters tournament on the TV because that is one of most exciting and iconic competitions of the golfing season. The event has taken place at the Augusta National Golf Club since 1933, and it’s an excellent choice for those who want to arrange a Spring holiday around their favourite sport.

Kentucky Derby

Those who enjoy a flutter on their favourite horses should never overlook the Kentucky Derby that takes place on the first Saturday of May at Churchill Downs in Louisville. It’s one of the largest and most famous horse racing events in the US, and it’s an excellent excuse to dress up and spend a day at the track. The Kentucky Derby is also part of the Triple Crown alongside the Preakness Stakes and the Belmont Stakes. So, you might consider booking tickets for all three!

The US Open of Surfing

Surfing will make its debut as an Olympic sport at Tokyo in 2020, however there have been lots of surfing competitions in the US for generations. The US Open of Surfing takes place at Huntington Beach in California, and it attracts some of the most talented surfers from all over the world. It’s an excellent place to witness surf skills and start to get involved in the sport.

The US Open (Tennis)

Tennis fans who want to venture further afield than Wimbledon tend to have only one other tournament on their minds. That is the US Open that’s held in Queens, New York every summer. It’s wise to keep your eyes peeled for tickets because they tend to sell out fast. However, arranging a US trip around this tennis tournament could be perfect if you love the game.

Regardless of which sporting events interest you, arranging your US holiday around a sporting event can help you make the most of your time in America. There’s always something going on but check out ticket availability before you travel!
