A LOT! Now, I'm going to use some very general numbers here, but we're ball-parking.

The average cost for one Super Bowl 57 ticket is now roughly $10,000 according to Forbes magazine. When you add the flights and lodging it would cost two people $22,400.

  • Average ticket: $10,000 x 2 (Forbes)
  • Cheapest round trip flight from Hartford to Phoenix: $800 x 2 (Expedia)
  • Cheapest Hotel Room in Glendale (Motel 6): $854 (USA Today - Sports)

If you went for the best Super Bowl seats available, you'd pay over $40,000 per ticket. The cheapest tickets are $5,800, so if you add airfare and lodging you spend over $14,000 for two people to watch a football game.

Just to recap, $14,000 for two people on the low end, $82,400 high end. These are the costs if you don't eat or drink anything the entire time you're there. This is your out-of-pocket if you don't take a cab or buy a shirt. This all sounds very reasonable.

It's important that you also understand the price goes up everyday. When I decided to write this article on Tuesday morning the average ticket price was $9,400 and by Friday (2/3/23) it had gone up to 10+. I am publishing on Monday (2/6/23) and my stats are probably low by now. By the time I finish this sentence, the average ticket could be over $20,000, who is to say?

See Newtown Sanitarium Through the Lens of an Award Winning Photographer

Fairfield Hills Psychiatric Hospital is located in Newtown, CT. The campus has been in varying degrees of restoration/development since it closed on 1995. The Town of Newtown owns it and has turned some structures into municipal buildings while others have been leased out to private businesses. The remaining vacant structures have become magnets for ghost hunters and artists.

Recently, I spoke to one of those artists, a photographer named Bryant Abbot. Our digital talk was unique and entertaining. Abbot shared his photos, his personal story and his inspirations with me. Below are his pictures of Fairfield Hills and some of what we talked about.
