What to do when you’re in Greater Fort Lauderdale for Super Bowl LIV 2020

Before you shell out big bucks for a hotel just to sit in Miami traffic, consider the fact that staying in Greater Fort Lauderdale during Super Bowl LIV can make it quicker and cheaper to get to Hard Rock Stadium versus staying in Miami. 

Get to the Game More Quickly from Miramar

Hard Rock Stadium

Take it from a local, if you’re on the hunt for Super Bowl weekend hotel deals, check out Miramar, a town just southwest of Fort Lauderdale. It’s the shortest drive to the stadium in the county – shorter, in fact, than from most areas of Miami-Dade county because of its easy highway access. It’ll save you time to check out some of the attractions in our guide to Miramar.

Enjoy Events Surrounding the Big Game

Raised in the 954

Celebrating the next generation of stars on and off the field, Raised in the 9[54], a two-day, free-to-the-public Friday Night (1/31) LIVE Concert and Saturday (2/1) Family Fun Day places focus on the strong ties Broward County has with the NFL. Professional football and Broward County have a solid connection. Through Week 16 of the 2019 NFL season alone, 52 players are wearing an NFL jersey, representing players from 19 different Broward County High Schools and 24 NFL clubs. When we say the next 100 years of the NFL starts in the 954, it really does.
