Message from Super Bowl XLV: Come on Down to Sunny Fort Lauderdale!

Images of football fans shivering in the freezing ice and snow at Super Bowl XLV on February 6 in Dallas had those of us who live and work in sunny Fort Lauderdale wondering why anyone would plan an important event anywhere but here. As fans who paid hundreds — and even thousands — of dollars for tickets bundled up to navigate the frigid conditions in Texas, Fort Lauderdale enjoyed an average daytime high temperature of 75◦and sunny skies. As icy road conditions forced schools, offices and Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport to close in the days before the big game, and hotels reported intermittent power blackouts, our visitors spent their free time at the beach, strolling beautiful Las Olas Boulevard and dining in outdoor restaurants and cafes.
