South Beach Super Bowl

SOUTH BEACH, Miami-The action on the field may be three days away, but that hasn’t stopped the people in South Florida from figuring out how to have a good time.

Miami, Florida — site of Super Bowl XLIV — has come alive as fans, players and industry leaders from around the country have descended upon South Beach for all of the game-week festivities that kicked-off Wednesday night.

The National Football Post has set up a base of operations at the beautiful Catalina Hotel & Beach Club on Collins Street in South Beach.

The location is outstanding, the staff is very friendly and the Coronas are ice cold.

Now that the rain has subsided — for the moment — we wanted to give you a quick tour of what life has been like for everyone at the Catalina.

The video pretty much sums it up.

(Editor’s Note: This is my first attempt at playing travel guide, so be gentle in the comments section).

And be sure to check out the podcast as Bowen, Bunting and I break down the Colts-Saints matchup and talk a little Senior Bowl-Super Bowl action.
