Out here, it’s more like “Go big and then go home…a few days later.” That’s because Las Vegas has finally done what it does with just about everything and kicked the professional sports experience to over-the-top, unbelievable new levels. Thanks to the arrival and establishment of some headline-stealing sports teams (and a couple billion dollars worth of state-of-the-art arena and stadium construction), Las Vegas has skyrocketed into first place as the travel destination for sports fans of all stripes. During certain seasons, nearly 100,000 sports fans are watching a major game or match—and that’s just at two sports venues right off the strip. The roster includes massive Allegiant Stadium, the new home of the NFL’s Las Vegas Raiders, T-Mobile Arena, headquarters of the NHL’s Vegas Golden Knights, and a number of other great sports venues around town—as well as up in Reno. If you’re looking for sports action, Nevada is just the ticket.
