The unique sport of lacrosse is played extensively in the
eastern United States, and nowhere is it more wildly popular than
in Maryland, where 'LAX' stickers are to be seen on multitudes of
fancy cars alongside decals for posh private schools, in accordance
with the sport's elite reputation. The origins of lacrosse lie with
multiple Native American tribes, for whom the game had great
significance in both performing religious rites and preparing men
for war. The Lacrosse Museum and National Hall of Fame showcases
the history of America's oldest sport as well as today's top male
and female players, coaches and contributors. A drive to the
museum, just north of downtown, takes visitors to the edge of the
beautiful campus of Johns Hopkins University and the elegant
neighbourhoods of Guilford and Roland Park.
