Enjoy a Home-team Advantage for Your Own Action-packed Super Bowl Party

Chances are, you’ll be among the nearly 100 million Americans who take part in one of the nation’s biggest annual winter rituals: the Super Bowl. This year, West Villages enjoys something of a home-field advantage since the Big Game’s being played in Miami Gardens.

Granted, the award-winning community of nine distinctive and stunning neighborhoods in North Port is nearly a four-hour drive from Hard Rock Stadium. If you’d rather not travel so far or pony up around $5,000 for a seat situated just below cloud level, don’t sweat it.

That’s because at home in West Villages, Life Your Way means calling all the plays for what also happens to be one of the longest-lasting, single-day parties on the nation’s calendar.

Here’s a fun fact: The average pro football game runs three hours and 12 minutes and, of that, calculations show only 11 minutes involve actual physical contact. What to do with all that overtime? For one, delight in some of the year’s best commercials.  For the rest, party.

You don’t have to spend the $81 per person it’s estimated fans shell out for friends, family and neighbors at Super Bowl bashes each year. Likewise, you could head to any of a number of beach bars and eateries for watch parties nearby. Or you can take advantage of the vast array of resort-style amenities throughout West Villages. Huddle with neighbors at the clubhouse, around the swimming pool or in the numerous parks.

Party experts say your good times should kick off at least two hours before the coin toss. For Super Bowl LIV, that’s 6:30 p.m. Here are some tips to avoid any fumbles:

  • Homes throughout West Villages boast open-concept floorplans, ideal for creating all the space you need to make your TV the center of attention.
  • Don’t run out, but keep chill. Put out several tubs filled with ice and everyone’s favorite thirst-quencher.
  • With Florida’s early February highs in the gorgeous mid-’70s, be sure to prep your outdoor living spaces. Many homes in West Villages feature lanais and patios, so keep them stocked with drinks, fun eats and snacks.

What’s a festivity without food? Florida’s three pro football teams, the Tampa Bay Bucs, Miami Dolphins and Jacksonville Jaguars, didn’t make it to the Big Game, so cheer for your favorite dishes from each city. This year, try Kansas City barbecue, with its iconic sauce, followed by the San Francisco treat, Ghirardelli Hot Fudge Sundae—with the cherry on top.
