Whilst holidaying may seem like a distant future given the pandemic this year, it’s important to remember that there will come a time when we can all travel again. If you’re stuck indoors over the winter period, why not plan your next vacation with your favorite sport in mind? Whether it’s sun, city, or adventure you’re seeking, there are plenty of places in the world that are suitable for fans of all ages. Below are a few that might tickle your fancy.
What list for cricket fans would be complete without India? Eden Gardens Cricket Grounds is known as the home of the sport in India; it is the oldest stadium that was built for the sport over 150 years ago, and on non-match days you can take a tour of this amazing arena which has seen so many notable test matches and world cup victories – and you can relive them all in the museum. When you’ve had your fill of cricketing history, take a welcome break in the hotel room to unwind, watch TV, or even check out 5 pound bingo sites online.
Miami Beach, Florida
Who doesn’t love the beach? From the sand to the water and everything in between. Miami Beach is a particularly great destination as it has the most tropical beaches in the continental United States. Why not even try your hand at a round of beach cricket with the rest of your family?
Reserva Monteverde, Costa Rica
Costa Rica might not be the first destination that pops to mind, but this area has a rich and interesting history in the sport. Not only is it full of scenic, lush landscapes, but this area is also a prime hotspot for hiking, zip-lining, canopy tours, and horseback riding. If your travel group are of the adventurous type and you want to have a cultural experience in nature, Reserva Monteverde can be a great stop too.
North Island, New Zealand
The North Island of New Zealand is another fantastic destination for cricket fans, with North Island regularly playing South Island as a way for national selectors to choose the best players for the New Zealand team. While it may not be littered with mountains, this beautiful area has some unusual and fun activities, such as the sulfur pool at Rotorua and the caves of Waitomo. There’s also an opportunity to visit the hobbit holes at Hobbiton from the famous Lord of the Rings trilogy. If you love the open road, it’s advisable to drive around in a motorhome so that you can see the best of what the island has to offer.
City breaks can make fabulous vacations if you want something a little different, and Paris is one of the most exciting. This romantic city is host to the Eiffel Tower, Paris Disneyland, the Louvre Museum, and the Cité des Sciences et de l’Industrie, which is a museum geared for children, which is great if you’re travelling with your family. These activities alone could easily take up a few days, especially as the city itself is so grand. Paris is also full of amazing architecture, culture, and fantastic food, so you will surely have a blast in this French capital.
