Whether you are a football fanatic or not, taking a trip out to University of Phoenix Stadium, home of the Arizona Cardinals and annual Fiesta Bowl is definitely a treat. A quick drive into Glendale will allow you to enjoy the multipurpose football stadium that hosted the Super Bowl XLIX in 2015.

The 63,400-seat stadium is considered an architectural icon for the area and was named one of the ten most impressive sports facilities on the globe thanks to its combination of a retractable roof and roll-in natural grass field. The unique design of the exterior shell of the stadium is meant to symbolize a barrel cactus and the metal panels reflect the shifting desert light. Thursday through Saturday the stadium offers multiple 75 minute tours that give you a behind the scenes look into the stadium itself.

The stadium may be a sight of its own but catching a glimpse of the stars live in action is sure to make your heart race even faster.

Tour an NFL Stadium
Fall is football season, and visitors who love the sport can buy tickets for a game if one coincides with their time in Phoenix.

Seeing sports isn't the only way to experience the state-of-the-art stadium, though. Guides offer stadium tours on days when no games or events are scheduled. Built in 2006 to the tune of $455 million, the stadium features lots of bells and whistles that will fascinate architecture and tech aficionados. Examples? The exterior of the stadium is designed to look like a barrel cactus, a native plant, and the natural grass playing field is retractible; it was the first of its kind in the United States.
