Even though the 2019 Super Bowl is only one event, its popularity makes it more difficult to plan than people think. With thousands of people from around the country and the world making the trip, there are also thousands of decisions to be made. Here are some basic questions you might have and what to do with them.
How much are tickets?
At this point, tickets even at the very top of the stadium go for at least $3,800 on the official NFL website, while sideline tickets tend to be at least $15,000. Because of this, many like to purchase their tickets from different companies. But beware— the 2019 Super Bowl is a hotspot for scammers and they can often rip people off of thousands. Be sure to find a way to verify third-party sellers, and note that those claiming to have tickets for less than at least $2,500 are most likely lying about it.
How can I get to Atlanta?
While most people immediately think of airline flights, for those who already splurged on the tickets themselves and are looking to save in other areas, taking a bus, train, or even making the drive yourself if you live close enough are always options. However, once you get to where you're staying in Atlanta, there is then the hassle of getting to the game itself on time. Some people get rental cars, call an Uber or taxi, or even just walk there to avoid the insane traffic if they're staying by the Stadium.
The traveling is often the biggest hassle and a frustration for many on what is supposed to be a fun trip. Luckily, there are many super bowl travel packages that account for every moment of travel when you buy your ticket.
What hotel should I stay at?
The best option is usually to stay as close to the stadium as possible if you want to be near the action and other events going on. There are many brand names located downtown such as Hiltons, Marriotts, and Westins. However, if cost-effectiveness is a more important factor to you than proximity, you may want to discuss other options with a travel agent when buying a super bowl travel package.
What other tickets should I get?
For some people who live far from Atlanta, it may be worthwhile to stay in the city for more than just a day or two to really make a vacation out of it and see all the city has to offer. Atlanta is home to a beautiful aquarium, the Coca-Cola museum, and many more attractions. If you’re planning on getting a Super Bowl travel package, be sure let your agent know if you’d like to arrange for extra activities around the city.
