Widnes, United Kingdom
Widnes is the proud sponsor of the Widnes Vikings Rugby League; so proud, in fact, it has a museum dedicated to the team at Stobart Stadium, where you can also watch live games. If you are more interested in sightseeing, you should first stroll in the town centre and along Victoria Promenade, but the best views of Widnes and the River Mersey are from the Pex Hill Observatory and the Golden Jubilee Bridge. The larger towns of Liverpool, Chester and Manchester are all within a 40-minute ride of the town if you want to venture out.
