When the football season begins, the entire country seems focused on finding the latest NFL odds. That’s not the only thing people are thinking about, though, as others are focused on visiting NFL stadiums. 

The NFL has teams throughout the United States, and you can usually find these teams in some of the best cities in the country. Not all cities are built the same, though; some provide better locations to visit than others. 

The actual NFL stadium and NFL team will have an impact when choosing the best cities to visit, and here is a look at seven of the best locations. 

Seven Best NFL Cities to Visit

Los Angeles, CA (Chargers, Rams)

Los Angeles RF

The Los Angeles Chargers and Rams now share the newly built SoFi Stadium, and it’s hard to find a better NFL stadium. It’s a much different viewing experience at SoFi Stadium than what you will find in most other places. 

Los Angeles is arguably the sports and entertainment capital of the world, though even if you’re not visiting during game day, you can take a behind-the-scenes stadium tour to check out the premium suites, team locker rooms, the player tunnel and more.

Not only is going to SoFi Stadium a good option, but it’s never a bad idea to take a trip to Los Angeles, California. It’s usually cold during the NFL season, but that’s not the case in LA. 

For NFL Events, onsite parking is extremely limited, so we recommend taking the Metro C Line and disembarking at Hawthorne/Lennox Station. Metro offers an Express shuttle service from the Hawthorne/Lennox Station to SoFi Stadium on game day.

Miami, FL (Dolphins)

Speaking of warm weather, it’s never a bad idea to take a trip down to Miami during the winter months. The beaches in Miami will offer some great experiences, giving you a chance to thaw out while watching some football.

Hard Rock Stadium is the home of the Miami Dolphins, University of Miami, the Miami Open and many global events, and the Dolphins are a team that has started to turn things around.

Splurge out on access to a suite experience without the commitment to an entire suite. Theater Boxes are available as 4 or 6 person boxes and include food & beverage.

Pro tip: Miami has also been selected to host the FIFA World Cup 2026.

Green Bay, Wisconsin (Packers)

Since the beginning of the league, the Green Bay Packers have been featured in NFL lines. You could make a pretty good case that the Packers are the most storied team in the league, and Lambeau Field is one of the most historic stadiums in sports. 

There aren’t really many reasons to visit Green Bay outside of football season, but this has to be on the list every winter.

Lambeau Field offers a terrific place to watch a game, and there is an unreal tailgating scene pregame that must be experienced.

Las Vegas, NV (Raiders)

There’s no better place to find Vegas NFL odds than going to Sin City on your own and getting them straight from the source. The NFL took a pretty big gamble when they allowed the city of Las Vegas to have an NFL team, but it has worked out well so far. 

Allegiant Stadium is a multi-billion dollar venue, and the Raiders are one of the most popular teams in the league. It’s worth a trip to Las Vegas just to check out the new stadium, but there are plenty of other reasons to visit the city as well. 

Dallas, TX (Cowboys)

Jerry Jones is the owner of the Dallas Cowboys, and he spares no expense in providing a great viewing experience for NFL fans. Dallas plays at one of the most impressive NFL stadiums in the league, and the Dallas, Texas, the area is always a blast to visit. 

The Cowboys are known as “America’s Team,” and they always seem to be one of the better teams in the league. If you are planning an NFL trip, then visiting Dallas is a must.

Boston, MA (Patriots)

You’re probably looking for sunshine and warmth when watching an NFL game. But while you won’t find that in Boston, visiting the state of Massachusetts for a New England Patriots game is still an experience everyone should have at some point. 

The Patriots have dominated the league since 2000, and they play in a terrific stadium as well. Before and after the game, you can explore the history of Boston.

Denver, CO (Broncos)

Denver, Colorado, is one of the most underrated cities in the United States, especially regarding great travel destinations. The Mile High City is beautiful 365 days a year, and there is much more to see than just the Rocky Mountains. 

The Denver Broncos have a storied past in the National Football League and a terrific stadium to watch a game. You will find plenty of other terrific things to do before and after the game in Denver.
