Prepare yourself, Miami: Super Bowl week is nearly here. So many entertainment options tied to the big game at Hard Rock Stadium are coming your way — including parties, festivals, concerts, and tailgates — that you probably won’t have time to hit all of the events you want to check out. Luckily, there’s a way to take part in the celebrations without bleeding your wallet dry.
Some of the coolest options cost $25 or less, and a few even offer free admission. We’ve put together a list of the best budget-friendly events during Super Bowl week for you below, because we know not everyone has $750 lying around to go to Maxim Havana Nights.
Enjoy a taste of the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio right here in your own backyard. This traveling exhibit opened at HistoryMiami Museum in late-September, bringing with it 200-plus artifacts, including the jersey Barry Sanders wore when he broke the 2,000-yard rushing mark, Tom Brady’s draft card from the 2000 NFL Draft, and the football used by Dan Marino when he broke the career passing yardage record — you know, back when passing records used to really mean something. For those who like their exhibits interactive, you can watch highlights of any NFL Hall of Famer you’d like on kiosks, take a crack at the Instant Replay Booth, and try on vintage pads and jerseys.
