Getting Super Bowl tickets is one herculean task, not to mention a costly one. Add to it this year that you would likely be freezing in New York in what is going to be pure chaos. If you want the preferred Super Bowl experience, Las Vegas is the destination for you.
While Giants Stadium doesn’t allow tailgating for the Super Bowl, Las Vegas offers some of the finest gourmet food right at your fingers. You are not allowed to bring your car within certain areas of the stadium; every casino in Las Vegas has valet parking. New York is going to be frigid and while Las Vegas might not be pool weather, you don’t have to leave the confines and warmth of the casino you are staying at. How about paying hundreds of dollars for a nosebleed seat or sitting up close and personal to some of the biggest and most clear televisions in the world?
If you are looking for the ultimate setting for a private Super Bowl party the Skyboxes at the MGM Grand's Race & Sports Book gives you just that. Sitting in a sports book is a pretty amazing experience but the Skyboxes at the MGM take that experience to another level literally.
The Skyboxes offer a second-level view and can comfortably host up to ten guests while the larger SkyBox 2 and SkyBox 3 can be configured to comfortably accommodate up to twenty guests and you will get your own beverage server and complimentary food. The MGM Grand's Race & Sports Book also made grabbing your own food convenient as it is adjacent to the Stage Deli. For more information visit MGM Grand's Race & Sports Book or call 1-800-776-7824

The Monte Carlo is home to another of the great venues to watch any sporting event, The Pub.

Pull up a bar stool, grab a table or venture upstairs, but whatever you do you won’t be disappointed with anything about The Pub. Amazing food that would be insulted if you called it bar food and a beer selection that is like no other and one of my favorites, the adult milkshake.

If you are looking for a sports book that is a little upscale head over to ARIA. Couches, lounge chairs, self-bet kiosks and a VIP section if you really want to upgrade your experience. All of that is great, but what is really going to make this a complete experience is that right next door to the ARIA sports book is FIVE50 Pizza Bar. Chef Shawn McClain created this high-end pizza bar that has an amazing menu but for the sports book experience you can walk up and just order a slice of an assortment of his amazing pizza selections.
