Eat

Miami is going to be popular on Super Bowl weekend, so plan your meals now. Make some reservations at buzzed-about locales like Le Jardiner, L’Atelier and Frohzen.

Le Jardinier’s bubbly interior and mod design play well with Michelin-starred chef Alain Verzeroli’s fresh ingredients and vegetable-forward menu. Consider this one a healthy start to a long, fun weekend.

 

For something a little richer, L’Atelier boasts a modern French aesthetic, helmed by chef Joël Robuchon. Cross your fingers and hope for a seat at the signature 34-seat dining counter offering a view into the open kitchen.

 

If you’re traveling with kids, or just kids at heart, you’re going to want something sweet and refreshing on a hot day. Frohzen boasts the very Miami blend of high-street-low-street with elevated, innovative ice cream creations. Created by executive pastry chef Salvatore Martone, this stop has far more than your standard cone or cup concoctions.

Play

For some relaxing family time before or after the big game, head to the newest luxury waterpark in town, Tidal Cove, at JW Marriott Miami Turnberry Resort & Spa. Let the little daredevils run around, splashing and playing at the resort’s 60-foot tower, seven water slides and 4,000-square-foot kids pool, including a fun aquatic play zone. Also on site, the first-ever FlowRider Triple surf simulation pool in the country. After a long day (or weekend) of swimming and sliding, grab something to eat at one of the park’s two dining locales, including Surf House Bar & Grill offering a sit-down experience and Freestyle, serving fast-casual food and service.

Get in some shopping before Sunday football at the The Royal Poinciana Plaza, or head over after the game for some retail therapy — depending on who you’re rooting for, you may need it. Located in Palm Beach, Florida, this shopping plaza boasts more than 180,000 square feet of retail space. Expect some lush, green landscape and calming botanical vibes to ease you from store to store with your little shoppers.

Grab a cabana with a luxury package, including a coveted ticket to Sports Illustrated’s The Party, Feb. 1, and viewing party on game day Feb. 2. Read more about cabana packages here and what your lucky, luxury crew can expect.
