From traveling to all 30 Major League Baseball parks in a single summer, to visiting all 32 NFL stadiums in a lifetime – you’ve seen the stories about their epic road trips.

But let’s say you’re just a normal NFL fan, with normal funds available, who enjoys placing bets using Vegas NFL odds. Making 32 NFL related trips isn’t realistic, but you like travel, cool cities, and good football. Where should you go?

Here are our three favorite NFL cities you should visit

Las Vegas, Nevada

Las Vegas

If you like wagering on football, go to the Mecca of sports betting: Las Vegas.

World class entertainment, five-star restaurants, the glitz and glamour of Las Vegas Blvd, and one of the newest stadiums in the NFL that by all accounts offers an incredible football gameday experience.

You can stay at a neighboring casino and walk directly to Allegiant Stadium for the game. Sure, the tickets are fairly pricey on the secondary market, because it’s obviously a popular destination. But it’s popular for a reason – it’s Las Vegas and everyone loves it. Plus, you can check in on your wager by connecting to the in-venue wifi.

There is ample parking around the stadium, so tailgating before the game is a big event. And for the big spenders that want a true Las Vegas experience inside the stadium, there is an 11,000-square foot club in the north end zone that offers bottle service.

New Orleans, Louisiana

In Las Vegas they have one of the newest domes in the NFL, while New Orleans features one of the oldest and most iconic domes in the league. Now named the Caesars Superdome, the stadium first opened in 1975 and since then the Superdome has hosted seven Super Bowls and three BCS National Championships.

Seeing a Saints game in the dome is a must, but of course the real star of this trip is the city of New Orleans. There may be no better destination for foodies than New Orleans, with its native French Creole cuisine, but also every other type of popular food from around the world.

No less than 22 restaurants in New Orleans have won a James Beard Award, so before and after the game, the eating is fantastic. New Orleans is also the birthplace of jazz, and literally 24 hours a day there are clubs with jazz and other genres of music playing live on stage.

In New Orleans, come for the football, stay for the food, the music, and the all-night party on Bourbon Street. All these factors make it one of our favorite NFL cities.

Denver, Colorado

It’s no longer the original Mile High Stadium that is the home to the Denver Broncos, but all the same things that made that stadium such an icon in the NFL are still present in the new stadium. Sold out crowds every Sunday, loud, passionate, and knowledgeable fans, and an original AFL organization with a proud history of winning.

To be surrounded by 80,000 screaming fans in orange, even if you aren’t rooting for the Broncos, you can’t help but be caught up in the atmosphere.

And then there is the city of Denver, one of our favortie  which really is one of the gems of America. You think football in Denver, and you think cold and snow. But in truth, the city boasts 300 days of sunshine a year and very little snow when compared to the mountains a half-hour away.

Of course, there are the Rocky Mountains, with the nearest ski resort just an hour away from Empower Field at Mile High.

There’s also terrific food in Denver, especially if you like Mexican food. The city is known for a green chili sauce, and you can find it at almost every restaurant in town. There is also a huge brewery industry in the area, apart from the actual huge brewery of Coors, located in Golden.

The current number of breweries in Denver and the metro area is 148, and always changing, so grab some buds, drink some suds, and choose a Colorado team at your sportsbook!
