Find a Sports Attraction

On your mark, get set, go!

The world is full of sporting events, some familiar, some not so much. For sports fans, one of the bet ways to dive into local culture is to go to the local pub and watch a hot sporting event, whether it’s cricket in Jamaica or polo in Pakistan. Or better yet, see it in person. And then there are the iconic ball fields and sports stadiums, not to mention halls of fame. And — maybe better — the chance of actually taking to the field yourself, for example, playing a round of golf at St. Andrews or learning to curl in Alaska.

Playing Golf on Bowen Island in Vancouver, Canada

I am driving on to the deck of the Queen of Capilano ferry. Forget about island hopping, fairways are on my mind! The view of the North Shore Mountains widens as we head out of the Horseshoe Bay Harbor to the calm waters of Howe Sound. From the mountains to the ocean, outdoors activities ...

Touring Milwaukee’s Harley-Davidson Museum

The crowd in the museum is quiet. Reverent, actually. A grizzled, pony-tailed man in leathers, chains hanging from his pockets, slowly walks up and down the rows of gleaming bikes. Pausing before one that catches his eye, he fishes a tiny camera out of his pocket, frames his shot just ...
