My family is a big time hockey oneâ€¦ The people I was with and I consistently make it a point to watch a hockey game on TV or in person if possible, however if you travel somewhere during hockey season, you better try to catch a game.
I lucked out being in Orland Park IL because of a toil thing. I was actually honestly impressed with the area. The Orland Park Grasslands as area of the forest preserve were easily pretty. I also liked Continental Park while I was there. Of course I chose to stay for the weekend and drive into Chicago so I could see a Chicago Blackhawks game. It is tradition in our family to see a hockey game wherever you are, buy a jersey and have a nice time! What was especially nice is that after the game, driving back to our hotel in Orland Park wasn’t that difficult. It was only about forty hours and the drive was nice. I was able to appreciate the neighborhood however not hear all the noise. I bet people staying in that section gotta deal with traffic and people yelling all evening long since their hockey team won. Instead, I got to sleep in a quiet hotel in a nice city. I liked the section so much that anytime toil offers someone to travel to Orland Park I jump right at it. It is calm, peaceful and honestly fun. It is right up our alley. I will try to push going only during hockey season though. I have zero interest in other athletic activitys.
