The Olympics in Rio are now over. The next summer games will be in 2020 in Tokyo. But in 2024 I think America should get another crack at the Olympics. Here are five cities I would choose.
1. Boston, Mass.
The birthplace of the American Revolution should at least host the games once. Fenway Park, Gillette Stadium,Boston Harbor, and even Harvard and MIT could host Olympic events on their campuses.
2. Charlotte,North Carolina
Yes I admit after the HB2 law it's going to be hard to get anything in North Carolina. But Charlotte was in the running for a olympics bid by the IOC a few years ago. The whitewater center there is used by Olympic teams to practice the whitewater events. Plus Bank Of America Stadium. Charlotte Colliseum, Carowinds Themepark, The area rivers, and even the Blue Ridge Mountains nearby can all host olympic events.
3. Chicago, Illinois
Everyone has been saying this for years that Chicago should host an Olympics. Chicago is known for being a sports town with the Bears, Cubs, White Sox, and Blackhawks all having prestige in the area. The Olympics would be a good investment for the Second City.
4. San Francisco, California
San Francisco would be a very good area for the games. With Oakland, San Jose, the whole bay near the Pacific Ocean would be great for the swimming and whitewater events. Plus with all the culture and history of San Francisco the Olympics would be a good fit.
5. New Orleans, Louisiana
With all of it's French, Cajun,and Southern culture New Orleans deserves at least one chance at the Olympics. The Gulf of Mexico, Superdome, Lake Ponchartrain, The Mississippi River, and even nearby places like Baton Rouge, Biloxi,and Gulfport could host events.
Las Vegas, Nevada
New York City
Those are my choices. What would you list as your top American cities to host a future Olympics?
