Do you love going to live sports games? Do you get a thrill cheering on the home team? If so, Los Angeles is a great place to be as there are a number of venues that offer opportunities to watch quality sports games. Sports fans staying in hotels near Dodger Stadium and nearby, here are some of the best places to watch sports in Los Angeles.
The Coliseum is not only a fantastic football arena, it is also a historical landmark of California. The Coliseum opened in 1923 and the first football game was played there on October 6 of the same year when the University of Southern California won against the Pomona College football team with a score of 23-7. Since then, The Coliseum has been the home stadium to the University of Southern California Trojans. During the regular football season, consider coming down to watch the Trojans play some football.
If football is not your favorite and you are more of a baseball fan, Los Angeles has got you covered. Support the Los Angeles Dodgers by going to a game at the Dodger Stadium. The stadium is actually the third oldest stadium in Major League Baseball, but it truly has one of the most unique locations. Sitting atop the hills of the Chavez Ravine, the stadium overlooks downtown LA, giving attendees a picturesque view of the city, especially at night. It truly is a beautiful site – and watching the Dodgers play baseball isn’t bad either!

It is the home to an incredible four professional sports teams. Do you love basketball? If so, this is the place for you. At the Staples Center, you can watch the NBA’s Los Angeles Lakers or the Los Angeles Clippers play, as well as the WNBA’s Los Angeles Spark.
