There are over 145 stadiums in the United States, all with their own unique atmosphere. Looking to find the stadium that offers a little more than football? Here’s a list to get you started:

Scenic Sports Spectator:

If you’re nice or nautical, try “sailgating” at Husky Stadium. If boats aren’t your thing, head to the CenturyLink Stadium to catch the SeaHawks play. This Seattle staple is home to over 30 craft beers so if you’re not enjoying the game, you can at least enjoy a variety of beer.

Foodie Football Fans:

Surprisingly, the same place that you can find an authentic Philly cheesesteak is the same stadium PETA touts as the #1 most vegetarian friendly stadium. Lincoln Financial Field offers up great local cuisine from the city of Brotherly Love including soft, warm donuts by neighborhood favorite Federal Donuts.

Preservers of Pigskin Past:

If you’re looking to get some history out of your football experience, why not head to the Superdome in New Orleans? This place has hosted more Super Bowls than any other stadium and is surrounded by a city rich in culture and American history. Or you could catch a game at High Points Solution Stadium at Rutgers University, the birthplace of college football.

No matter which Gridiron Gang you belong to, we hope you make it to and from the stadium with ease. Enjoy the game!
