If you enjoy traveling, one of the best ways to get the most out of your international visits is to plan it in harmony with the time major sports events are taking place. Check into a hotel in whatever part of the world you visit, including the USA, a day or two before. This will give you enough time to get settled before the sports event, and there are many notable ones to mark on your new 2020 calendar. No matter what kind of sports you enjoy, 2020 will be a year full of spectacular events you won’t want to miss.
Olympic Games in Tokyo, Japan

In September of 2013, Tokyo was announced the winner in a competition with Istanbul and Madrid. While Madrid and Istanbul would have been worthy locations for such a historic sports event, Tokyo has some of the best shopping and city night lights in the world.
