NBA Basketball Arena Review - ARCO Arena
There is something special about ARCO Arena in that it always seems to sell out no matter how poorly the team is playing. It goes without saying that the Sacramento Kings have some of the most loyal fans in the entire NBA. They also have some of the most boisterous, which means that playing at ARCO gives the Kings a true home court advantage every time they step on the floor. Upon walking in to the main bowl of the arena, you will be hit by just how well ARCO Arena is set up acoustically. It's obvious that the architects were trying to funnel the crowd noise down to the floor, and any visitor that has witnessed a Sacramento Kings game will tell you that the setup works perfectly.
Whether you are coming in on Interstate 5 or Interstate 80, ARCO Arena is very accessible through both major highway systems. Its location just off of Commerce Way provides plenty of space for cars to get in and out of the arena quickly. ARCO Arena is very nicely set up in the way that it gets you quickly back on the expressway and headed for home. The cost of parking at Sacramento Kings game will only cost you $10, and the parking lot is big enough to fit every visitor's vehicle, so there will be no long walks from outside the arena's general area to worry about. If you are looking for public transportation to and from the arena, the Sacramento Regional Transit District is able to get you to and from the game as long as you give them a call ahead of time to let them know that you will need their services.
If you are looking for a quick bite to eat before you get to your seats, there are plenty of concession stands within the concourse of ARCO Arena. From hot dogs to hamburgers, you will be able to find the traditional concession food that you crave as part of your NBA viewing experience. Searching for something a little more formal? The Skyline is located on the fourth floor of the building and provides buffet-style dining while overlooking the action on the court. You not only get to savor some of the best food in the Sacramento area, but you can see the Sacramento Kings playing basketball at the same time.
Restaurants in the area of ARCO Arena also offer some very good options if you are looking to grab a bite to eat either before or after the game. You can start off your night at Chris Webber's own restaurant, Center Court. You can usually find a celebrity or two dining on the fine offerings that Center Court provides. If you are just looking for a quick drink, Center Court is the place to be as well. It has a full-service bar that has your favorite libations waiting for you to take advantage of. BJ's Brewhouse provides excellent pizza and beer for those who are looking for an old-fashioned start to their night of sports and entertainment. BJ's is a great place to visit if you seek a laid-back atmosphere that will allow you to enjoy the rest of your evening.
Night clubs are aplenty in Sacramento, but there are a couple that stand out above the rest that you must visit any time you are in the Sacramento area. The first club is called Avalon, and it is located in Santa Clara. Depending on the night, you will find a diverse group of people spending their entire evening on the dance floor. Popular acts also make their way to Avalon, as Rick Springfield, Winger, and Boyz II Men are just some of the artists that have performed inside Avalon. Northern California also has a brand new nightspot that you will want to check out when you are in town to watch a Sacramento Kings game. Barcode Nightclub & Lounge has a great general feel to it, and you will enjoy popular hits mixed in with sounds of the underground music scene. This is the perfect place to find yourself socializing with some of the hottest people in all of California.
The California State Capitol & Museum is located in Sacramento, and it should be one of the highlights of your next visit to ARCO Arena. Modeled after the U.S. Capitol building, the California State Capitol has a museum located inside that houses historical items from both California's and the United States' past. Would you enjoy a close up look at the Sacramento waterfront? Head down to Old Sacramento, which is a collection of restored and refurbished buildings that were once a part of the city in the 19th Century. Tours of Old Sacramento are available, and they have restaurants all along the walkway that provide excellent food and a great view.
The Sacramento Kings' roster has undergone some major changes in the past few years, but they are still one of the most athletic teams in the NBA. Their exciting brand of basketball will leave you standing on your feet and high-fiving the people seated around you. ARCO Arena provides an experience that you will never forget, and the accommodations and features of the building only add to its allure and charm.
