I am looking at coming back to the States (was there jan-march 2010) for a month around January 2012.
It's just me and a mate, we are going to hit Colorado for some snowboarding but are wondering what other stuff we should try and do while we are there. We aren't really into site-seeing more experiencing crazy stuff so just looking for some ideas/information on what we can do or cool places to go. We are pretty open minded about where to go.
We'd love to catch an NBA game, probably a college basketball game too. I also would love to catch a football game but I know with it being playoffs there is probably no chance I'll get to an NFL game. When does college football wrap up and what would be the chances of getting into a game or if not where is good to go to get into the whole spirit of it all. We went to a superbowl party at a Casino in Tahoe last time we were there but we'd love to go somewhere that is all out.
Are there any festivals, special events etc we can get along to? Basically we just want to have some crazy good times and do stuff that the average tourist probably wouldn't. Just experience a bit of the American lifestyle so to speak.
Any ideas etc would be greatly appreciated and I'm happy to return the favour for anyone travelling to Aus anytime soon.
