For avid sports lovers, there is little that’s more exciting than seeing the history of the game come to life before your eyes. What better place for this to happen than at hall of fame venues for your favorite sports?
While there may be many miles between the sports hall of fame ventures, private jet charters allow you to fly from one hall of fame museum to the next so you can take them all in – in short order.
Hockey Hall of Fame – Toronto, Canada
Canada has a deep hockey history and Toronto is home of one of the Original Six hockey teams, the Maple Leafs, making it an excellent home of the Hockey Hall of Fame and Museum.
The Hockey Hall of Fame is open daily and allows visitors to experience hockey history through memorabilia, press clippings, news clips, journals, and more. In addition to exciting exhibits regarding the National Hockey League, the HHOF also features the “World of Hockey Zone,” which explores Olympic and international hockey.
Pro Football Hall of Fame – Canton, Ohio
As the birthplace of the NFL in 1920, then called the American Professional Football Association, Canton, Ohio is the logical location for the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
Today it stands as a shrine to the sport of football in America with artifacts from monumental games and career milestones, such as the football from 509th Peyton Manning’s touchdown throw, which broke Brett Favre’s previous record.
Exhibits change over the years, but the focus continues to be on celebrating the best of the past and present of the sport of this exciting sport. Multimedia and interactive exhibits are yours to experience.
The Cleveland Hopkins International Airport and the Akron-Canton airport are two nearby airports.
National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum – Cooperstown, New York
The National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum in Cooperstown, New York has an interesting history. Originally, hotel owner Stephen Carlton Clark in Cooperstown created the Hall of Fame in 1939 hopes of bringing tourists back to the town that had been hurt by a combination of the Great Depression and Prohibition.
Baseball has such a rich history in America and the Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum seeks to preserve the history and tradition of America’s sport with exhibits, education, photographs, and memorabilia.
World Golf Hall of Fame – St. Augustine, Florida
The World Golf Hall of Fame is somewhat unique as a venue because it celebrates excellence and recognizes achievements and contributions of both the men and the women of golf. There are many exhibits at the Hall of Fame that pay tribute to famous golfers of days long past, as well as those who have achieved notoriety on the greens in more recent years.
The World Golf Hall of Fame even offers a golf simulator that allows visitors to experience the challenge and thrill of golf on some of the world’s most stunning golf courses without flying all around the world. In fact, you only need to take a short flight by private jet charter to Northeast Florida Regional Airport or Jacksonville International Airport.
NASCAR Hall of Fame – Charlotte, North Carolina
There’s nothing quite like the thrill of watching 42 cars round a two-mile track at speeds approaching 200 miles per hour – but the NASCAR Hall of Fame is the next best thing for many die hard race fans. The $160 million dollar facility opened on May 11, 2010 and is a state of the art facility honoring top names of NASCAR, past and present, and the 60 year history of the sport.
Very near the NASCAR Hall of Fame, the Charlotte Douglas International Airport (CLT) is the sixth busiest airport in the world, but alternative airports available by private jet include the Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport, Columbia Metropolitan Airport, Piedmont Triad International Airport, Asheville Regional Airport, and the Florence Regional Airport.
Consider pairing up a visit to the NASCAR Hall of Fame with taking in a race at the Charlotte Motor Speedway.
