FIELD OF DREAMS: Interior of Cowboys Stadium in Dallas/Ft. Worth, Texas (flygraphix/Flickr)
Sure, you can still pay through the nose to book your air-hotel package for Super Bowl XLV in Dallas on February 6, but here's a tip for saving a few greenbacks for Cowboy Stadium's Texas-sized Miller Lites and sausages on a stick: Pack your tent and sleeping bag and book a campsite at one of the Dallas/Ft. Worth area state parks. Nearby places like Cedar Hill State Park (16 miles to Cowboys Stadium) and Lake Tawakoni State Park (76 miles) are both still showing availability via the Texas Parks & Wildlife Department's online reservations system. A campsite for two nights for two people over the Super Bowl weekend will only cost you up to $40 total, so a major discount on even the skuzziest motels in the area. Current projected weather forecast is predicting highs in the mid 50s for Super Bowl weekend, lows in the mid 30s—so chilly at night, but nothing a snug blanket and zero-degree bag can't handle! RV-driving Super Bowl fans can also pitch up at more affordable RV parks via DFWEventsAndCampgrounds.com, a site being offered through the Texas Association of Campground Owners. Now, good luck getting that ticket to the actual game!
