New York Rangers
From baseball to another sport beloved in the US, especially during the winter months: ice hockey. And, specifically, The Big Apple’s New York Rangers!
They’re based at Madison Square Garden, an indoor arena which enjoys a prominent location in Midtown Manhattan, within walking distance of other top attractions like the Empire State Building and the Rockefeller Centre.
After the game, you could stop by the Grill Room: a chic on-site restaurant serving modern American cuisine. Everything from that Madison Seafood Tower (including shrimp, lobster tails and more!) to three choices of steak!
New York Knicks
Also based at Madison Square Garden are the basketball team the New York Knicks. You’ll need to budget around three hours in your schedule to properly enjoy a game with the Knicks, and the same applies if you’re planning a trip to see the Rangers or the Yankees.
You could also catch a pop concert at this immense sports venue, which seats 20,789 people: Billy Joel, Billie Eilish, Elton John, Mandy Moore and Sheryl Crow are just some of the famous names who will be performing here in the first half of 2020!
Madame Tussauds Washington, DC
Finally on our round up of things to do in NYC and DC for sports-lovers, it’s Madame Tussauds Washington, DC. Sure, it’s best-known for its waxworks of celebrities and political figures, but this iconic attraction, found in major cities worldwide, is also home to an array of life-sized depictions of famous names from the world of sport!
Here, you can see models of the late baseball legend Babe Ruth, for starters. Elsewhere, tee off with golfing icon Tiger Woods and meet Russian ice hockey player Alex Ovechkin.
