The Whodat Nation will be showering Miami with black and gold goodness on Feb 7. New Orleans has cancelled Family Gras and fans all over will be watching the Saints at their first of hopefully many more Superbowl appearances.
The Superbowl for the Whodat Nation isn’t just about football or a game. It’s about believing in something greater than us and having hope that we can dream and make things happen. I’m so proud of my state’s team and wear my Saints black and gold just as proudly as I do my LSU purple and gold. No matter if you are a Saints or Colts fan, here are a few tips to help you find your way to the stadium make the most out of this historic sports event:
Parking Tips for Sun Life Stadium – Parking opens at 11:00am on Superbowl Sunday. Tailgating is not allowed onsite (boo on you Superbowl people). Permits for passenger vehicle parking in the far away lots can be ordered online for around $65 plus Fedex, taxes, and extra fees. Vehicle for hires (towncars, limos) are charged starting at $150 plus extra fees. These are for standard parking as the premium parking was sold out at publishing time. Bus parking is still available for around $300 per vehicle. Sadly, no RV parking is allowed onsite. Here’s a parking map for Sun Life Stadium.
Shuttles – Tri-Rail is offering $5 roundtrip shuttle service to and from Sun Life Stadium. Board the train at any of Tri-Rail’s 18 conveniently located stations on Sunday, February 7, 2010 for Super Bowl XLIV. Take the train to Tri-Rail’s Golden Glades Station and board the shuttle bus, sponsored in part by Miami Subs Pizza & Grill, to arrive at the Wal-Mart bus drop-off and pick-up location. Shuttle buses will begin operating at 1 p.m. All Tri-Rail Super Bowl XLIV Roundtrip tickets may be purchased online no later than 5 p.m. on Friday, January 29, 2010. Tickets will be available at all Ticket Kiosk locations after these dates. One northbound and one southbound will depart the Golden Glades Station approximately 1 hour after the final play of the game. An additional northbound will depart the Golden Glades Station approximately 1 and ½ hour after the final play of the game.
Taking a Taxi – Taxis are allowed to drop off and pick up customers near the Fan Plaza at Gate 4. Miami area taxis and phone numbers: Yellow Cabs (305)444-4444; Flamingo Taxis (305)599-9999; Central Cabs (305)532-5555. Check out TaxiFareFinder.com for Miami taxi flat rates and more companies.
