There’s nothing quite like getting super-excited for a football game, is there? The excitement and atmosphere in the stadium is unmatched, and it’s something you can feel even when you’re watching TV at home. You might be thinking about going to a game this year, whether it’s the World Cup or the Super Bowl, but you might have some worries. What if you don’t know anyone there? How will you get in the stadium? Is it even allowed? Are you old enough to be there without a parent or guardian?
The security guards at the stadiums are probably the least of your worries. They’re there to make sure no one brings weapons into the venue, and they sometimes get bored of keeping an eye on the fans. During the game, they’ll either be looking at you from one angle or the other, which makes it easy for someone to slip through undetected. The most you have to worry about is the long lines at the gate, which can make you miss the whole first half. But other than that, once you’re in, you’ll have the time of your life. You might even decide to buy a TV and watch the game from start to finish. Who cares if you have to stand in line for a while? It’ll be worth it.
Wondering how to get into the speedway infield? You’ll need a ticket, of course, although you can get them for free if you attend one of the many concerts at the track. While you’re there, you can also visit the Hall of Fame, which is dedicated to the great drivers who have called the track home. If you have a favorite driver, you can pay your respects by going into the hall and taking a peek at their incredible trophies and memorabilia. The best thing is that these places are absolutely free, so there’s no reason not to go. Just make sure your mom gives you enough money for lunch before you go. That’s what I usually do when I take my kids. It’s important to let them feel the excitement and thrill of a game, and this is the best way I know how to do it. They love visiting the stadiums and getting some autographs from the players. It’s definitely a fun day for them, and it makes them look up to the players more. You can’t put a price on that kind of inspiration. The only downside is that you have to be close to the stadium to get the full effect. If you live far away, you might not be able to see all of the plays. But it’s still worth the trip, particularly if you’re a football fan. Just make sure you don’t get stuck in line for a couple of hours before the game or else you’ll miss out on the whole thing. Standing in line isn’t fun when you’re hungry and the heat is getting to you. Plus, the food can get very expensive, particularly when you’re paying for snacks and drinks. It’s always nice when you can get food and drinks at the venue for free, but it’s not always possible, so you might have to pay for those. But it’s totally worth it.
The Best Time To Visit
You don’t want to go during the summer because it’s very, very hot and humid, so most places and businesses will have closed down. The track might also be closed for repairs, so you’ll have to find someone to drive you there if they’re open. When it comes to the best time to visit, it really depends on where you are. If you’re in Florida, you might want to go in the morning or early afternoon, just to ensure you catch the right temperature. If you come at night, it’ll be really, really hot, so make sure you bring plenty of water and sunscreen with you. The humidity is at its peak in the night, so if you come at night, you might not be able to catch a breath until the next morning. Coming during the day is generally best as it keeps the temperature down and makes standing near people much more bearable. The afternoon is also a good time as you’ll have the stadium to yourself for most of the day. If you come at night, you’ll either have to find a place to stay or eat out a lot. You might also have a hard time getting a parking spot, particularly if it’s during the week, so be prepared to pay for parking. At least it’ll be worth it.
Where Can I Stay?
Where you stay really depends on what you want out of your trip. There are a lot of nice hotels and Airbnb rooms in the area, so you have numerous options. You might not want to stay too far away from the track, as it gets pretty far out once you reach the edge of the town. The hotels in the area will charge you a lot for that, and there are a lot of other places you can stay that are a lot closer. The perfect spot is half a mile from the track and within walking distance of all the restaurants and attractions. That way, you get to enjoy the game and all the fun activities without missing your flight home. There are also plenty of other hotels and Airbnb rooms in that area, so you’re bound to find something that fits your needs. If you come in the off-season, you might find some motels and hotels that are offering great discounts, particularly if you’re a member of a certain group. When you make your reservation, make sure you ask about these discounts. That’ll make a world of difference when you’re trying to save money, so make sure you have that in mind. You might also want to stay in the same hotel as the players and coaches. It gives you the perfect opportunity to meet them and say hello. But other than that, you don’t really need to stay in a hotel, as there are plenty of Airbnb rooms that you can rent. That’ll make a world of difference when it comes to saving money and getting a decent night’s sleep. All you need is a bed and a place to cook your dinner, and you can feel like a total star. Getting into a fancy hotel just to hang out isn’t worth it. As long as you don’t mind having your meal paid for, Airbnb is perfect.
What Should I Bring?
The items you need really depends on what you want out of your trip. It’s not necessary to bring your entire wardrobe, as you’ll mostly be sticking to simple clothing. Jeans and a t-shirt should be fine for the most part, as long as you’re not trying to go on a night out. If you do decide to go to dinner or a show, you’ll need something more. It’s always best to be prepared, so make sure you bring a small clutch of things. It could be a small handbag or a larger jacket or purse, whatever is easy to carry. Just make sure you don’t go overboard and bring too much. It would be a pain to carry all that stuff all day, and it might even be a security risk. You don’t want to go anywhere with an oversized bag, as they’ll certainly notice you’re carrying a lot. Most importantly, make sure you have everything you need to get into the stadium. If you have a game on a Sunday, make sure you arrive at the stadium early. It’s best to take the walk from the hotel to the stadium to get the feel of the place and to stretch your legs. It’ll help you get into the swing of things. You can also use the walk to get some sun and avoid the worst of the heat, so you come back a little cooler and ready to watch the game. These sorts of things will help get you into the mood of a game, so make sure you do everything you can to take your mind off of how much you miss your family and friends back home. These things will help.
