Top Rated Sports Venues - According to Adam

Adam on Sports Parks

If your guy is a sports fanatic, negotiate a trade for your passion. Nothing beats the home arena of his favourite team, but the next best alternative may be his team playing at one of these gorgeous venues. I'm betting you can find fun in any of these cities and he’ll be on his knees thanking you for thinking of him (think putty in your hands!!)

Pac Bell Stadium, San FranciscoPac Bell Stadium, San FranciscoML Baseball’s Best Rated Stadiums – PNC Park, home of the Pittsburgh Pirates, Pac Bell Park (now AT&T Park), home of the San Francisco Giants, and Camden Yards, home of the Baltimore Orioles. According to Jim Caple of ESPN Sports, these 3 rank above the crowd on everything from architecture, fit to the local environment, pre-and post game experience and amenities. Review the entire article at ESPN.com.

NHL Hockey’s Best Rated Arenas – Erik Erlendsson, writer for Tampa Bay Online rates Montreal’s Bell Center (home of the Montreal Canadiens) as tops overall, followed by Minnesota’s Xcel Energy Center (home of the Minnesota Wild), and thirded by Edmonton’s Rexall Center (hosting the Edmonton Oilers).As a sports writer following the Tampa Bay Lightning, he’s visited his share of venues. Eric's blog gives the rundown on the runners up. 

New Orleans Arena, home of the HornetsNew Orleans Arena, home of the Hornets NBA’s Best Basketball Courts – According to Bob Johnson, his top ratings for the basketball courts are as follows –

  • New Orleans Arena (home of the Hornets)
  • Sacramento Arco Arena (home of the Kings),
  • Miami American Airlines Arena (home of the Heat).  

These three ranked tops for pricing, fan experience and of course Miami’s Laker girls!

NLF's Best Football Stadiums - Bill Evans, in a special report to ESPN SportsTravel , wrote about the travels of Andrew Kulyk and Peter Farrell as they visited and rated each of the NFL venues. Their ratings of the top three overall experiences were:

  • Lambeau Field in Green Bay scored 78.5 (home of the Green Bay Packers),
  • Heinz Field in Pittsburgh scored 73 (home of the Pittsburgh Steelers), and
  • Reliant Stadium in Houston scored 72 overall points (home of the Houston Texans).

Their scorings included access, experience concessions, and fan experience ... 

I hope your sports experience blew the mind of your man in your thoughtfulness to find something of his likes and passions, now think trade value ...

What experience do you want him to attend to with you, hmmmm?

  • On 5 Nudist Resorts that Will Blow Your Mind, John Ruze said "Hi Julia, There is a brand new, very popular nudist resort you should think about reporting on in your next article about naturism. It is the New Terra Cotta Clothing Optional Resort and Spa in sunny Palm Springs, California.. The original Terra Cotta Inn was a fantastic nude resort. Repeat guests from around the world stayed there. TCI was sold in Nov 2015 and greatly missed. Well, this July 2017, it was revived at a new location in Palm Springs. The site is HotelTerraCotta.com. Guests are super happy. It's perfect for couples and girlfriend getaways. And Tom and Mary Clare from the original Terra Cotta Inn work with us, so it has the same relaxing, fun feel. "
  • On The Best Naturist Resorts in Ontario, Dennis Wilson said "Love the freedom feeling going nude . 1st time ever was at freedom fields ranch near Tamworth On,Hector & Eyvon are super hosts ,hope to visit this summer but want to learn of more places to visit."
  • On An Open Letter to Hotels Everywhere, Lynn said "I agree on the night light thing. Since hotels have none, I end up keeping the bathroom light on all night with the door ajar. Windows. I understand in the litigious US of A, hotels need to prevent folks from throwing themselves out the windows (or else the hotel could be sued?!!). Ok, fine. But for those of us who dislike A/C and only use it when absolutely necessary, can't we still have the option for some FRESH AIR? There ARE ways to allow windows to open up only so much, while at the same time preventing an entire body from throwing itself out the window. Bedskirts. Am I the only one who gets the skeevies when I see hotel beds with bedskirts that hit the floor? I always had images of food crumbs, bugs, and god only knows what...as being hidden behind that bedskirt. I'd much rather a bedskirt that's at least 2" above the (usually carpetted) floor. Towels. Can't we get nicer towels that don't feel like cardboard? Carpetting. Am I the only one who never walks barefoot in a hotel room ...esp when there's carpet? Blech. I'm sure those things are very rarely cleaned. "
