If you are any type of sports fan, chances are you may already know that Superbowl LVII is coming to the State Farm Stadium in beautiful Glendale, Arizona. What you may not know is that your Sedona.Org vacation rental is just a short drive to where all the excitement is going to be taking place! Just imagine a vacation filled with the beauty of the red rock country and a short drive later (about two hours) you can also be in the center of attention. Most eyes will be turning to our desert city, and because you chose to take your Sedona vacation during America’s most popular Sunday, will be able to join in on the fun and excitement, returning afterward to relax in peace and quiet. This guide to Superbowl 2023 will give you a sneak peek into the excitement that will be taking place the weekend of February 12, 2023.
Only Getting Better
Since 1996, the Phoenix Metropolitan area has hosted the Superbowl three other times—once in 1996 at Sun Devil Stadium, which is where our Arizona Cardinals used to play, once in 2008, and again in 2015. (These last two were played at State Farm Stadium in Glendale) And just as we all know the best way to get to Carnegie Hall is to practice, practice, practice, the state has learned a few things about how to make the festivities outside of the actual game fun and exciting! Even if you don’t manage to get tickets to the big game, (Ticket packages START at close to $5000!) you won’t mind playing, exploring, and enjoying all the extracurricular activities that are an important part of the event!
Super Bowl Experience, February 4-5 and 9-11 Phoenix Convention Center
Football fans will feel as if they are a part of the big game when they take part in the Super Bowl Experience, held at the Phoenix Convention Center the weekend before and the weekend of Super Bowl 2023. Collect autographs from your favorite players—including legends of the past—play interactive games, and experience youth football clinics that will keep the smile pasted on your children’s faces for weeks to come. Live entertainment and food vendors are planning on being a part of this super-activity, guaranteeing that every visitor will have the time of their lives!
Free Fan Festival, Margaret T. Hance Park, Super Bowl Week
Free activities can often seem less important, but we can promise that the fan festival will be your favorite part of the game! It offers live entertainment, local cuisine, (NOW is the time to try some authentic Mexican food guaranteed to change your life!) and a celebration of culture that of course includes the game, but also celebrates all the people who visit or live in the area! Local bands promise to play the music you love to sing along to, and its location close to the Super Bowl Experience AND Roosevelt Row Artist District will ensure that even if not everyone in your traveling party is a sports fan, there will always be something for them to do.
The beauty of the Phoenix area in the winter is unbeatable, and as you and your family or friends begin to explore all we have to offer, you may need to start planning a second vacation to ensure you can see it all! Spend a quiet day exploring the beauty of the Phoenix Zoo or enjoy a raucous night at Dwntwn on Central Avenue. Devour your favorite tacos at Tacos Chiwas, a casual family-owned business that makes us wish taco Tuesday was taco EVERY day. Enjoy bourbon, steaks, and a gentleman’s club atmosphere at Durant’s, and if you enjoy a contrast, stop by Char’s Live for a night of rhythm and blues and funk and soul. Not everything has to be about football, and the beautiful weather, sunny skies, and friendly ambience will make you want to get out there and play as much as possible!
