    UK, you could try the casinos in Biloxi, Mississippi like the Beau Rivage and Hard Rock. Its an hours drive from Biloxi to the Super Dome but the hotels are nice......there are also a lot of motels in Metarie by the airport that may not be booked but probably will raise their rates. Closer, but not as nice as Biloxi.

    dam that's a great deal for those so close I paid $900 for 4 seats like that at Ray's game. How are they about camera's up there? There's a chance I might going with a friend who has upper level seats for $275 and was thinking about taking my camera again. I haven't even finished the ones from the last game yet too focused on playoff fever

    Arnie: As a frequent traveler to New Orleans and former resident, my best advice is to get to work now work on hotels & rental cars (if you don't stay downtown or near the airport). We will stay with friends at Bayou Barataria, to avoid getting ripped off by the downtown New Orleans hotels.

    As suggested by NOLARavenFAN, look at the Missisippi casinos for typically good deals on lodging. There are also many non-casino hotels along the out-of-season Mississippi beachfront, where you can often get great deals, but will have to have a rental car. If you do Mississippi, look at alternate airports, not so much for the ease of access, but to avoid the New Orleans Intl - Moisant - Louis Armstrong airport rental car price rip-off. Southwest now flies to Panama City Beach.

    Another option would be to stay at one of the NOLA airport hotels, catch an airport shuttle to downtown to avoid rental car price-gouge and the major hassle to finding safe & adequate parking downtown. I typically stay at the Airport Hilton, Radisson, or Crown Royal as reasonably priced (compared to downtown), reasonably good quality hotels.

    If you want to go to a downtown hotel, you may find it challenging to get a room, especially during Super Bowl weekend. We rarely stay downtown except for timeshare condos, so perhaps someone with more downtown hotel experience can address. We have stayed at the Doubletree on Canal Street - great access to the French Quarter and within a long walk to the Superdome (or a short walk coupled with a Red Line streetcar ride up Canal).

    If you have never visited New Orleans and have some $$$ to blow, look at one of the boutique hotels in the French Quarter. The Royal Sonesta is outstanding, but likely filled by now. Last Winter, for $89/night we stayed at the renovated historic building Maison Dupuy hotel, just a block from Bourbon Street and a few blocks to Jackson Square. Doubtful you's see that rate on Super Bowl weekend, but it would be worth a shot.

    Finally, if you want to see what it's like in the Louisiana swamps, try the Victoria Inn, which is typically priced under $100. It is about 1/2 hour to downtown. I will be staying within a mile of the Inn.
    In a 2003 BBC poll that asked Brits to name the "Greatest American Ever", Mr. T came in fourth, behind ML King (3rd), Abe Lincoln (2nd) and Homer Simpson (1st).

    Damn nice seats. I'm ding the Nestor trip so dunno where my tickets will be till Saturday morning. I don't even care. At halftime when all the Pat's fans start leaving we'll just move down to the LL, and work closer and closer to the bench throughout the second half. At the buzzer I will be front row behind our bench lol.

    Dude, that's impossible. You sure the tickets are legit. Make sure you buddy is not able to peel off the back of the tickets otherwise it's not legit.

    For the last 3 years (well, at least 2 of the three), I've gotten deep into SB planning. I feel like Charlie Brown kicking the football, but I'm at it again.

    Flying into NOLA looks to already be too expensive for my taste. Southwest flies to Jackson, MS which is 3 hours from NOLA. Cheaper cars there too. Game tickets are currently $2150 and up on the secondary market, but will drop if NE is knocked off. A Baltimore-Atlanta SB would probably be the cheapest scenario.

    I have not heard from the Ravens RE: a SB lottery for PSL holders, has anyone else?

    For hotels, looks like a lot of good stuff on here already, and I've found pretty cheap lodging in Slidell (35 minutes away) for $110/night.

    What are the fares going for? Going into NOLA and/or Jackson MS?

    A lot depends when you go. I was looking at Friday arrival and Monday departure and it was about $750RT or more into NOLA. About $265RT into Jackson. There are other options such as Houston and Panama City, but those are 5 hour drives - no thanks.

    Baton Rouge airport is closest, just an hour away. After that try Gulfport, MS. And Pensacola, FL is a 3 hour drive, like Jackson.

    The casinos in Biloxi are just 40 minutes further and much nicer than anything in Slidell, which is a kinda a dump.

    I looked at those airports, not much of a difference from BWI.

    There you go. That's why I'm here, for the good advice
