After an intense and exciting playoffs, the two teams that will be competing in this year's Super Bowl are decided, the Green Bay Packers vs. the Pittsburgh Steelers. These two teams have been to the most Super Bowls out of any NFL team. Neither of these teams was high on the pre-season favorites to be winning a Super Bowl with the defending New Orleans Saints returning their championship team, and the usual suspect quarterbacks poised to have amazing seasons. Isn't that the beauty of it all though? Unpredictability.
I will leave the predictions of the winner to you to place in the comment section, as well as the best "Things To Do" in Arlington, the feature of today's post. The destination of Super Bowl XLV, Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas is playing host to this year's game and this is the type of event it was built for. A $1 billion stadium should come with the works and this stadium does not disappoint. With a seating capacity of 80,000 and an LCD television that will blow your mind with over 20 million bulbs, it will be the perfect venue for a Super Bowl to remember.
I have never attended a Super Bowl but it is definitely on my bucket list. If you are fortunate enough to be attending this year's game, I envy you. If you need a place to stay, Best Western provides great lodging at affordable rates and still has lots of rooms available during that weekend. There are many hotels in close proximity to the stadium, or even some a little further away if you don't want to be caught up in the craziness in the area. They even have great discount rates for being fans on Facebook or followers on Twitter.
Regardless of the outcome on Feb 6, travelers to the Arlington area will have more than their fill in attractions and beautiful weather. Are you going to the game? What are the best attractions in Arlington, TX...and oh yeah, who's going to win? Tell me your thoughts in the section below.
