The Mecca of Sports: The Sports Venues You Should Visit

It’s no secret that the greatest achievements in sports history benefited from the venue that contained them. After all, the pitch, field, park, or area contribute as much to the high-octane action as the players on the field.

So, what makes a good sports venue a great one? That depends. Some of the items on our list rode technological superiority to the top of the heap while others benefit from a long history of all-time greats.

The world is full of awe-inspiring sights to see, but for sports fans the list starts here. Today on Travelversed, we take a road trip to the mecca of sports – buy some peanuts or cracker jacks, and pay homage to the greatest venues in the history of sports with us.

Madison Square Garden

When it comes to sports meccas, there’s no place bigger than The Garden. Madison Square Garden, located in New York City’s Manhattan borough, is the crown jewel of professional sports. It’s home to iconic sports franchises like the New York Rangers and the New York Knicks, has played host to some of the most important boxing matches in the history of the sweet science, and is a rite of passage for chart-topping musical acts from around the world. Let’s just say that if the walls of MSG could talk, they wouldn’t be using their indoor voices.
