When visiting new cities, many people overlook one of the biggest cultural influences in Untied States culture—sports. A lot of money goes into sports, and it’s definitely evident in the stadiums. While there are tons of sports stadiums in the country, these are the ones worth checking out.
New Yankee Stadium, MLB
Located in New York, New York and home to the New York Yankees and the future home of the New York City FC of MLS, the stadium is one of the newer ones. The stadium opened in 2009 and one of the best things to see is the “Great Hall” located between the outside and inside walls that runs between gates 4 and 6. You’ll see banners of Yankee stars and LED screens. At Gate 6 you can check out Yankee memorabilia and highlights of Yankee moments.
AT&T Stadium, NFL
Home of the NFL’s Dallas Cowboys, and opened in 2009, the stadium’s best feature is the HD television screen which was the largest in the world when the stadium opened. The Party Press section allows standing room for 25,000 people and there are 80,0000 seats in the stadium. There are also 3,000 LCD TV screens, so you’ll never miss any of the action.
