Location: Wells Fargo Center
Rating:

Great location in South Philly in the Sports Complex that also houses Citizens Bank Park (where the Phillies play) and Lincoln Financial Field (where the Eagles play). It has a nearby subway stop and is really easy to access via public transportation. Overall, it's a pretty standard hockey/NBA arena. Nothing too amazing beyond its location but definitely a good, serviceable arena. It's also great to have Xfinity Live nearby where the old Spectrum used to be. Xfinity Live has a bunch of bars and restaurants.

Great location in South Philly in the Sports Complex that also houses the Wells Fargo Center (where Sixers & Flyers play) and Citizens Bank Park (where the Phillies play). It has a nearby subway stop and is really easy to access via public transportation. It's a really nice stadium and has some wind turbines at the top if you're into green energy. It's also great to have Xfinity Live nearby where the old Spectrum used to be. Xfinity Live has a bunch of bars and restaurants.

Location: RFK Stadium

RFK is certainly historic. Not necessarily in the best way. The stadium is old and certainly looks it. I believe it will be knocked down soon. It definitely had its place in history but its best years are behind it. I will say that the bouncing stands for DC United matches were pretty cool.

Great location in South Philly in the Sports Complex that also houses the Wells Fargo Center (where Sixers & Flyers play) and Lincoln Financial Field (where the Eagles play). It has a nearby subway stop and is really easy to access via public transportation. It's a really nice stadium that is new but doesn't feel overly modern (i.e. it still has elements that make it feel historic). It's also great to have Xfinity Live nearby where the old Spectrum used to be. Xfinity Live has a bunch of bars and restaurants.

Location: Avaya Stadium
Rating:

Avaya is about 2 miles from downtown SJ. For those that don't mind walking a bit, it's great to park near downtown, hit up some of the great bars and restaurants there, then make your way over to the stadium. I know that's not most people's ideal scenario so there is a shopping center right next to the stadium with traditional chain restaurants like In & Out, Chipotle, MOD Pizza, etc. What's really cool about Avaya beyond having the biggest bar in North America is that behind the bar is a grassy area where food trucks are brought it. The prices aren't crazy for the food and the variety is great.

Location: BBVA Stadium
Rating:

BBVA Compass can get pretty hot during the summer months as all fans aren't always shaded from the beating Texas sun. Other than that, the stadium is in a great location with lots of bars and restaurants nearby. The tailgating scene is pretty good as well.

As beautiful as the stadium's location is right under the Commodore Barry Bridge, the surrounding town of Chester knocks this rating down to 3.5 stars for me. Once inside the stadium, there are plenty of food and beer options but, as most stadium prices are, they are expensive. There's virtually no bars or restaurants in the surrounding area, unfortunately. The original development plans called for retail, office, and housing to be built near the stadium. If that ever happens, that would take my rating up because the actual stadium is great and the location has a ton of potential. There is a great tailgating scene here though, so if you're into the traditional American tailgating experience, Talen is a great experience.

Location: SAP Center
Rating:

Nice arena in a fantastic location right downtown in San Jose. Easy to access from public transport as Diridon Station is right next to the SAP Center and the VTA (street rail) stops a few blocks away. Plenty of restaurants and bars serving all kinds of foods located nearby. The actual arena is pretty standard and modern. Nothing too crazy or innovative going on but a good hockey arena in a great location.
