    I can direct you to some places where you can tailgate and walk to the game, or into the Quarter, for free. Now these are not luxury tourist areas but you will be safe there, and no one will bother you, but they are not in tourist areas. There would be an option to hire private security for your tailgate......cause the parking would be free. https://maps.google.com/maps?hl=en&s...ed=0CC8Q8gEwAA
    Look at the photo cause under the highway you can park for free and cook....its where everyone tailgates for the Zulu Parade, and you can walk to the Dome and the Quarter or where-ever you want to go. There may be other options if you have a group let me know and I may be able to arrange something on privately.

    I stayed there 1 + 1/2 years ago. It was well kept & in a safe area. Good food selection in their Continental breakfast. Plenty of moderately priced restaurants in the Covington-Mandeville area. The only risk would be the infrequent fog banks on Lake Pontchartrain, which could shut down the former longest bridge in the world. Fog over the lake can get nasty, but fog usually does not last into the afternoon. Best to pay attention to the weather.

    Suggestion: park at the airport ($9 Park & Fly remote lot to $14 long term garage walking distance to shuttle stop). Catch the airport shuttle for $20 to downtown. 15 minute ride to hotel district and Canal Street (borders the French Quarter)

    Thats an hour away over the 26 mile bridge on the other side of the Lake. You might want to think about hiring a driver and a car to get you around. You will have a much better time. PM me, I have someone reliable and reasonable.

    OK, for parking this is absolutely your best option:

    Park in this area City Park/Canal Street https://maps.google.com/maps?hl=en&s...ed=0CC8Q8gEwAA
    area, and take the 15 minute street car to the Dome area........you can find neighborhood parking here that is safe here for free, and walk to the street car line to the dome. Streetcars run almost all night too. This is much better than taking the bus from the airport. Trust me on that.

    Another parking option this one a longer walk from the Dome but at the edge of the French Quarter, stay 3-4 blocks to the right of the red arrow along North Peters Street:
    https://maps.google.com/maps?hl=en&s...ed=0CC8Q8gEwAA
    This area will not be approachable from the French Quarter, but if you drive through the Bywater neighborhood area (at the bottom of the map) you will be able to get quite close. You will want to get to this spot early in the day.

    I know this is steep but I know of a luxury room rental in a private home for $800 a night.........with transportation to and from the Dome and some VIP privileges included. Screening absolutely necessary for this, its with a very upscale New Orleans family with deep roots in the New Orleans community. Again PM me if you want to discuss this.

    OK, one more, I have a house available 6 blocks off the street-car line uptown, at https://maps.google.com/maps?hl=en&s...ed=0CC4Q8gEwAA
    This has two rooms with double and queen beds. Rates are negotiable depending in the number of nights.

    Yeah man, its like a dream come true for me.........the location is good. Rampart and Esplanade is just down the road from me. Saturday night in that area I would walk down to Frenchmen Street early and try to get into Adolpho's or Snug Harbor. You aren't going to get to far off the beaten path without a cab ride, and I don't know where to steer you. Everything is going to be really booked solid in the Quarter and near the Dome.

    Wow! That's an excellent location. (My wife was born a few blocks from there.) But don't wander too far north or east on foot!

    FYI for those who want to linger longer in the French Quarter before the game: The new Loyola Ave streetcar line will open next week, just in time for the Super Bowl. This should shave at least 3 or 4 minutes off the way us mortals used to take by walking the six short blocks from Canal via Loyola to the Dome.

    In any event, 70,000 fans and a new streetcar line could lead to a disaster, so please look both ways before crossing the streetcar tracks.

    Hey guys, new poster. We worked it out with another couple to get a 2BR condo in the Quarter for $600/couple/night. Pricey, but GREAT location (St. Philips below Bourbon) and hotels in the Quarter are $800 or more if you can get them -- which you can't. I was looking around at a lot of VRBO places. This site has a bunch too. http://www.eventhomes.com/2013/super-bowl/ If you can find other people to stay with, you can cut costs. Some nice places in the Garden District.

    Searching online for a place to stay in NOLA and can't find anything less than $1800 a night for a 2 BR. That is a great deal you found.
