The Super Bowl is back and this time Tampa Bay is hosting it here at Raymond James Stadium. With stadium capacity limited, the chances are very slim that you will see the action in person. So we’ve rounded up the best spots for the Super Bowl LV, from the kick-off to the halftime show and beyond, with a cold drink and a tasty snack in hand.
What if you stay? We have options that help you get the most out of your home viewing experience as well.
