Los Angeles invites Canadians to #StartYourComeback with diverse roster of experiences
I’m not a star quarterback like the Los Angeles Rams’ Matthew Stafford.
But leave me on the football pitch at Ram’s SoFi Stadium and I can pull a five-yard pass.
You see, my wife Kerry and I are on the SoFi Stadium Tour.
The highlight is actually walking through the player tunnel to musical adulation and cheerleaders shaking cheerleaders and onto the pitch to throw the soccer ball and run its 100 yards long.
In case you’ve been living under a rock, SoFi is the LA Rams and LA Chargers’ new $ 5 billion home.
It is not only the largest stadium in the National Football League, but it is hailed as an architectural marvel and a global sports and entertainment destination.
The palm tree indoor-outdoor stadium resembles a spaceship, has a retractable roof, can seat 70,000 people and is awe-inspiring from the millions of strands of artificial turf on the pitch to the LED display on the roof that dazzles passengers in planes take off and land near Los Angeles International Airport (LAX).
Therefore, SoFi simply had to become a tourist attraction in its own right, providing the touring experience on most days with no games and no concerts.
The tour also includes the simple act of admiring its vastness from the open-air lobby, discovering the Corona Beach House mega-suite, seated in the best seats in the house on the 50-meter line in the VIP 219 section and on the aforementioned land. shenanigans.
Then it’s a dinner of seared shrimp and riesling at Spire 73, the tallest open-air restaurant and bar in the Western Hemisphere perched on the rooftop of the 73rd floor of the InterContinental hotel.
The hip scene and the sight of the sun setting over the Pacific bathed in a pink-orange glow crowns a perfect long #StartYourComeback weekend in the City of Angels.
