5. 2022 U.S. Grand Prix

It may be one of the more recent additions on the Formula One calendar, but Austin has already proven itself as an exemplary host. Of course for F1 fans, it’s the race itself that’s the highlight, but the spectacular state-of-the-art facilities at the Circuit of the Americas takes it to the next level and is a big reason this circuit is one of the most popular with drivers.

Then there’s the city itself; Austin’s got great live music, a vibrant food scene and electric nightlife. Throw in some famous Texan hospitality and you’ve got a weekend that won’t soon be forgotten.
