With their newest acquisition of Kevin Durant, the Golden State Warriors could be on the brink of an incredible season in the NBA. Yes, they may have lost their opening game but they’ve won three on the bounce since then and there is still a long way to go. With 71 games of the regular season still to go, there are plenty of opportunities to see a Warriors game this season in their beautiful home town of Oakland, California. Remember to apply for your ESTA Visa when making your travel plans in order to gain access to the United States for up to 90 days.
Golden State were already the runaway winners of the NBA last season with Stephen Curry, Draymond Green and Klay Thompson running rings around much of the rest of the league. The fact that KD now plays his games with those three world class players has made them the Fantastic Four of the basketball world. Opposing teams be afraid, be very afraid, as they have the ability to tear teams apart like Lionel Messi, Neymar and Luis Suarez do for Barcelona every week.
Watching the Warriors play live means having the honour of stepping inside the Oracle Arena to enjoy the electrifying action. Golden State made their home somewhat of a fortress last season with a record of 39-2 in the regular season and 11-3 in the playoffs. If you’ve not been to an NBA game in person before, then the Oracle will blow your mind.
Outside of basketball, the Oracle has recently hosted Maroon 5 as part of their V tour. Red Hot Chili Peppers and Panic! At The Disco are set to play there in early 2017. The Grateful Dead have played at the Oracle on 66 different occasions, more than any other venue.
Make the most of your time in Oakland, outside of the basketball game, and visit the best zoo in California. It spreads out over 11 acres and has 58 exhibits of more than 400 native and exotic animals from all over the globe. A fun filled day for kids and adults alike is well equipped with a number of attractions and rides, including the zoo train that will give a more in depth look around the zoo and the beautiful landscape.
