Super Bowl XLIX – What to Know Before You Touchdown in Arizona

Super Bowl XLIX – What to Know Before You Touchdown in Arizona

Super Bowl XLIX is almost here and we are eagerly counting down the minutes until kickoff. Arizona is hosting the Super Bowl for the third time in 19 years. Super Bowl XXX was played at Sun Devil Stadium in Tempe on January 28, 1996 where the Dallas Cowboys defeated the Pittsburgh Steelers 27-17. Will we see something similar during Super Bowl XLIX?

The Super Bowl is the most watched TV show in the U.S. and has more than 160 million viewers in nearly 200 countries. And for Super Bowl XLIX, thousands of visitors are expected to descend upon the Valley of the Sun.

Phoenix is the 6th largest city in the United States. The Greater Phoenix area is home to more recreational open space – nearly 190,000 acres – than any other major metropolis in the United States. Arizona enjoys more than 300 sunny days per year and with 40 National Historic Landmarks there is no shortage of must-see attractions in town. Some must-see attractions in Scottsdale include the organic architecture at Frank Lloyd Wright’s Taliesin West and the Native American culture at the Heard Museum, or you can go on a culinary adventure in Scottsdale. Scottsdale was named the “No. 2 Foodie City” in the U.S. with over 600 locally owned and operated restaurants.
