If you have a crazy sports fan in your life, or you are one yourself, a trip to your favorite stadium or historical sports site can turn into a dream come true. Whether you're a new fan of a team or sport or you've been celebrating it for years, these sports fan trip ideas are sure to help you cross something off your bucket list.
The Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum in Cooperstown, NY, is world-famous for its large exhibit space that will delight baseball fans. Bronze plaques highlight each Hall of Fame member, and you can look through all the mementos from baseball's past. Cooperstown itself looks straight out of an old-fashioned movie, so you can visit other museums in town or try an old-fashioned trolley.
Fans of NASCAR have no shortage of places to visit. Many travel companies will sell vacation packages for the Daytona 500 and other NASCAR races. If you've already made the trek to Indianapolis, you can try going to Richard Petty's fantasy racing camps, where you can drive a real race car on a track.
The Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, OH, is the perfect idea for football sports fans. The facility was renovated and expanded in 2013 to include interactive exhibits where visitors can do more than simply look at memorabilia. While in Ohio, you can also visit Cleveland for a basketball or football game.
In Atlanta, GA, you'll find warm weather and Olympic history. You can check out Atlanta History Center's Centennial Olympic Games Collection to learn more about the summer games in 1996. Centennial Olympic Park downtown is also the perfect place to cool off in the summer. After that, you can head to Turner Field, the former Olympic stadium, to see the Braves play.
Kentucky is home to one of the most well-known gambling events — the Kentucky Derby. This event takes place at Churchill Downs in May of each year, but you can head to the on-site museum at any time. Baseball fans will also enjoy the Louisville area, as visitors can attend a bat-making demonstration at the Louisville Slugger Museum and Factory.
The City of Brotherly Love is famous for Rocky and wild sports fans. On a trip to Philly, you can experience the city and great sports moments by running up the steps of the Philadelphia Art Museum just like Rocky. You can even take a selfie with the Rocky bronze statute at the base of the museum's steps.
