The Super Bowl, Houston, February 2 – 6, 2017. This is the ultimate event for football fans, and when it plays out in NRG Stadium in Houston, it is going to be wild. Be right there for the game, and of course the half-time show headlined this year by Lady Gaga. Football events in Texas are always huge, and Houston is a city with a deep love of all sports. We can get you the seats you want, and arrange a bucket list trip for your deserving spouse, parent, or whoever made it to the top of your Christmas list this year.

The Masters, Augusta, April 3-9, 2017. When the world’s best golfers get together to slog it out for the coveted green jacket and one of the most prestigious titles on the professional golf circuit, you could be right there watching the action play out. We’ll arrange everything, from your transfers and accommodations to tickets and extra experiences, at whatever level of luxury you crave (want a private chef? Want to play a few rounds on some of Augusta’s best courses? We can take care of that).

The Kentucky Derby, Louisville, May 4–7, 2017. This iconic racing event takes place at historic Churchill Downs, and is one big star-studded party. More than just a race, this event is huge, and so much fun. Pack your most extravagant hat and get ready to have a flutter as you watch the world’s most impressive horses race. We can also tack on some excellent excursions to any Kentucky Derby package, such as tours of the many fine bourbon distilleries in and around Louisville, and of course put you up in the best hotels in the city.

The America’s Cup, Bermuda, May 25 – June 28, 2017. Let us take you to the island paradise of Bermuda for the world’s most prestigious sailing event. The weather will be perfect, and we can get you out viewing the racing on official spectator boats and have you attend official hospitality events too. Roadtrips’ guests will have exclusive opportunities, and we’ve secured rooms at the very best hotels in Bermuda (important as accommodations will be at a premium throughout the event).

The French Open, Paris, May 28 – June 11, 2017. This super cool clay court tennis tournament sees the world’s very best players converge in the City of Lights, and offers visitors incredible experiences that can be built into any French Open itinerary.

Wimbledon, London, July 3 – 16, 2017. This classic tennis event is steeped in tradition, and such a wonderful experience. Of course the tennis is going to be incredible, and there’s a chance you’ll see a monarch or one or two of their relatives sat in the Royal Box. The atmosphere at this quintessentially British event is so fun, and many of our guests return year after year. Plus, you have all of London to explore when you’re not watching tennis, which makes for an excellent trip too.
