Phoenix Super Bowl Travel


Phoenix Super Bowl Travel Guide

Phoenix is the place to be for the weekend of February 1-4, even if you don't have tickets to the Super Bowl. It's not too late to find a good price on a hotel room and a flight to Phoenix. Between the big game, the FBR Open PGA golf tournament, and the countless parties in Tempe and Scottsdale, expect a Mardi Gras-type atmosphere.

Although officially being hosted by Phoenix, Super Bowl XLII will rely heavily upon the towns and cities that comprise the greater Phoenix area. The game itself will be played at the University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, about ten miles West of Phoenix. ESPN, DirecTV, and others will be holding their official parties in downtown Scottsdale, while the masses flood the town's nightclubs. And nearby Tempe and Mesa will provide lodging and entertainment for droves of out-of-towners. So visitors have plenty of options for where to stay, party, and enjoy the game.

Though just a few weeks away, there's still time to plan an unforgettable trip. Whether you have tickets to the big game, or are planning to take in the energy of the town, this guide will be an indispensable companion on your trip. Need a sports bar for pre-game revelry, or a map to help you navigate the downtown? From the logistics of trip planning, like finding accommodations and transportation, to advice on how to spend your pre and post game days, it's all here. Make your Phoenix Super Bowl XLII experience an unforgettable one.
