Super Bowl LV will be the 55th Super Bowl or championship game of the National Football League. The 2021 Superbowl will once again be held in Florida, but this time in the city of Tampa. Coming of 2020’s exciting Super Bowl in Miami, this will be only the fourth time that back-to-back Super Bowls have been held in the same state.

The game will be held at the Raymond James Stadium. Neither the stadium nor the city of Tampa are new to Super Bowl; this will be the third Super Bowl held at the Raymond James Stadium, and the fifth game that has been held in Tampa.

Super Bowl LV will be held on Sunday, February 7, 2021. It will mark the conclusion of the 2020-21 NFL regular season.
Of course, it is impossible to know who will play in Super Bowl LV let alone who will win, but the odds are already out for 2021’s Super Bowl. Yahoo Sports has the Kansas City Chiefs as the favorite to win Super Bowl LV, at 7-1 odds. Other favorites are the San Francisco 49ers and the Baltimore Ravens at 8-1 odds.

If coming from interstate to watch the 2021 Super Bowl, you will most likely arrive into the city’s main airport, Tampa Airport (TPA). You can also drive to Tampa from Miami, the journey taking around five hours.

There are a few different ways you can get to Raymond James Stadium from Tampa City or Tampa Airport. The line 7 bus runs from Tampa city center to the Stadium, while the Line 32 bus runs from Tampa Airport to Raymond James Stadium.

However, the public buses will be overcrowded on the day of the Super Bowl so this may not be a viable option if you don’t want to miss kick off! Taxis are relatively expensive, costing around $35 from Tampa Airport to Raymond James Stadium. A more reliable alternative is to book a private car.

While you’re in town for the Super Bowl, why not check out the many sights and attractions Tampa has to offer? Tampa is the economic center of western Florida, and a popular tourist destination, with fine parks, museums, shopping and historic quarters.

  • Busch Gardens

Probably Tampa’s best-known attraction, Busch Gardens is one of the USA’s great, iconic theme parks. Opened in 1959, the park covers 136 hectares on the northern edge of the city.

Not only does it have some spectacular rides and roller-coasters, Busch Gardens also has real life wildlife exhibitions, where you can see animals such as giraffes, elephants, rhinos, and hippos in replicas of their own natural habitat.

  • The Florida Aquarium

This aquarium focuses on the natural environments and habitats of Florida, from the wetlands (complete with alligators!) to the deep ocean off the coast of the state. Its range of exhibitions include a colorful 60-foot long coral garden and ‘swim with the fishes’ activities.

  • The Museum of Science and Industry

Covering every aspect of science and technology, the Museum of Science and Industry has a range of exciting, immersive exhibitions. This museum is for all ages, with kid-friendly interactive exhibits, to others allowing visitors to try the latest, cutting edge technology.

  • Tampa Bay Brewing Company

After a long day of sightseeing, why not enjoy a craft beer at the Tampa Bay Brewing Company? Located at Ybor City, the brewery has created its own in-house batches of craft ale since 1995. You can visit their two tap houses to sample the acclaimed micro-brews at Ybor City and Westchase.

  • Top Tip:
Save money by buying the Tampa TRIO pass. The pass gives you great value on three of the city’s top attractions, the Florida Aquarium, the Museum of Science and Industry, and Lowry Park Zoo.
