This “Super bowl of Rodeo” was first held in Las Vegas in 1985, and has now become an annual tradition. For ten days Las Vegas becomes the Rodeo capital of the world with the top 15 qualifiers in different categories competing for a trophy and money. This is the ultimate vacation for the rodeo fan, the best riders, ropers and steer wrestlers in the vacation capital of Las Vegas.
We started going as a family around 5 years ago, after my wife got free tickets to the rodeo. My initial feeling was that it was going to be a little boring, but gee was I impressed. When you get there the main thing that hits you is the amazing atmosphere. It beats even the atmosphere you get at the superbowl!
We decided to ride our scooters down there, and at the time I had a vespa lx50 which was well worn but well up to the job. I am planning to go the National Finals Rodeo again this year and will probaly buy some NFR Tickets as soon as they go onsale.
If you are thinking about going to the national finals rodeo then you need to ask yourself a couple of questions:
1. Do you like horses?
2. Are you ready for some fun?
If you answer yes to any of these, then you are ready to hit the NF rodeo. The great thing about the NFR being in Las Vegas is the cheap hotels… try booking before you go to save cash.
