Which NFL Stadiums Should You Go To This Year?
2015 NFL Offseason
We’re down to the wire, y’all. The final Sunday of the year without the NFL has come and gone. This morning, we’re going to start the week by looking at the top ten stadiums you should try to visit during the 2015 NFL season.
1. Levi's Field - I had a chance to be shown around the year-old home of the San Francisco 49ers in January and, let me tell you, it’s well worth a visit before it hosts Super Bowl 50 in February. This is the crown jewel of the league (at least until the Minnesota Vikings and the Atlanta Falcons get their new facilities next season).
2. Lambeau Field - You didn’t think you’d get to read a list about the best stadiums to visit without seeing Lambeau’s name, did you? The longtime home of the Green Bay Packers hosts some of the greatest fans in the league week in and week out. Even if you’re pulling for the away team, you can’t go wrong with a visit to Wisconsin if you call yourself a football fan. I know it’s on my list for 2017 when the Colts play there.
3. Lucas Oil Stadium - The home of the Indianapolis Colts is an integral part of the city of Indianapolis. Between the skywalks that let you get into the building without going out in the cold, the massive window that showcases the city’s skyline, and the impressive exterior architecture, you can’t go wrong with a trip to Naptown. Plus, you’ll get to watch this guy named Andrew Luck play ball…you might’ve heard of him.
4. University of Phoenix Stadium - The home of both the Arizona Cardinals and Super Bowl XLIX, University of Phoenix Stadium is one of the most modern facilities in the league. Personally, I’ll never tire of watching videos of the turf moving in and out of the building at the touch of a button.
5. Soldier Field - The Chicago Bears’ stadium is the oldest in the league, with 91 years of history behind it. I visited the facility in May and its well worth a trip, especially if you’ve never had the chance to see it before. Soldier Field blends historical architecture and modern amenities better than any other facility I’ve had the pleasure of seeing.
6. CenturyLink Field - The Seattle Seahawks are one of the most popular teams in the NFL right now and they play in one of the league’s most impressive stadiums. CenturyLink Field is a stunning part of the Seattle skyline and you can’t become a part of the most famous 12th Man in the world (arguably) anywhere else.
7. Arrowhead Stadium - The home of the Kansas City Chiefs is the fifth-oldest facility in the league, yet it remains one of the greatest. In 2010, the stadium underwent nearly $400 million worth of renovations, making it even better for today’s NFL loyalists. Plus, no place else holds the record for the loudest fans; it’s currently sitting at 142.2 decibels.
8. Sports Authority Field at Mile High - Who knows how much longer Peyton Manning is going to play? I’m guessing another year or two, at most. If you want to see the man, the myth, the legend before he hangs-up his cleats for good, I’d recommend making a trip to the home of the Denver Broncos. Not to mention, Sports Authority Field is an impressive structure and you can’t beat the views.
9. EverBank Field - I know, I know, the Jacksonville Jaguars are far from an intimidating team, but their stadium warrants a visit following last year’s updates. Even if they’re losing, where else in the NFL can you watch the game from a swimming pool or a private cabana? Answer: nowhere.
10. Georgia Dome - As you read earlier, the Atlanta Falcons are prepping to play their final season in this stadium. Even though the Georgia Dome certainly isn’t the league’s most impressive facility anymore, it’s worth a visit (especially for SEC fans) before it hits the chopping block.
