4. Ohio Stadium, The Ohio State University
Popular Mechanics: “The horseshoe shape is synonymous with Ohio State, and at roughly 105,000 seats, Ohio Stadium is one giant horseshoe. The nation’s first concrete double-deck stadium was built with 66,000 seats in 1922. Howard Dwight Smith chose the horseshoe curve to ensure the crowd always faced the field.”
Our Take: Better known as The ‘Shoe, this cement behemoth seats a whopping 102,082 fans. Settle into the most uniquely designed stadium in all of American professional sports and prepare to watch The Best Damn Band in the Land perform Script Ohio, enjoy the sideline antics of Brutus Buckeye, and listen as chants of O-H-I-O ring through all four sides of the stadium. A crisp fall afternoon in the Horseshoe is a sight to behold.
