For the avid sports fan, going to the game is about more than the contest itself. It’s about the atmosphere, the history, the excitement of their team winning after placing a bet on, and of course, the stadium. Here are five iconic sports stadiums in the United States that should be visited by any sports enthusiast.
Built in 1965, the Houston Astrodome was the first covered playing dome that was suitable for football and baseball.

Notre Dame Football Stadium

Built in 1930, the stadium and the surrounding university campus are a must see for any college football fan.
Pesky’s pole.The Green Monster.The Budweiser Pavillion. If you aren’t sure what these are, then you have not been paying attention to Red Sox baseball. Fenway park is now the oldest working baseball park in the United States since it was built in 1912. Tucked in the middle of Boston overlooking the Charles River, homeruns hit over the Green Monster might hit cars on the Massachusetts Turnpike. With the Red Sox winning the 2013 World Series, a trip to Fenway Park is a great way to celebrate this team.
Built in 1914 and home to the Chicago Cubs, Wrigley Field is the second oldest baseball park in the United States, only second to Fenway Park. In the 2014 season, Wrigley Field will be celebrating 100 years of baseball and this will be a great year to visit the park.
