With the 56th edition of the Super Bowl quickly approaching, we’ve set out to uncover the best hotels, restaurants and attractions for football fans and halftime show enthusiasts alike. Based on Location Intelligence, Sentiment Scores and our new Popularity Index, Data Appeal has pinpointed the top places around SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles. To deepen our analysis of the Super Bowl’s impact on Los Angeles, we turned to longtime partner PredictHQ.

The Top Places in LA for Super Bowl LVI based on Location Intelligence, Sentiment and Popularity

While our data couldn’t predict the two teams who will go head to head in the 56th edition of the Super Bowl, we can accurately tell you where fans will go to spend the highly anticipated weekend – from restaurants and bars to hotels and attractions. 

For the second consecutive season, the team hosting the Super Bowl will be playing on their home turf. In fact, the L.A. Rams, scheduled to go head to head against the Cincinnati Bengals, are only the second team in history to play a Super Bowl at home.

For home-town fans or those planning a trip to the City of Angels for Super Bowl Sunday, The Data Appeal Company has tapped into our location intelligence playbook to select some of the top places around SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California just outside Los Angeles.

Location Intelligence is invaluable to uncover the hot spots in your territory for site selection, outdoor (OOH) marketing campaigns and investment opportunities.

To support this analysis, we’ve conducted a complete mapping of nearly 2,000 points of interest within a 5KM radius of the game’s venue, including food and beverage establishments, accommodation properties, attractions, tailgating sites and much more.

The interactive Location Intelligence map below, designed by Data Appeal and our partner Carto, pinpoints the top accommodation, F&B and attraction venues for Super Bowl fans. Location Intelligence is one of the most advanced tools for strategic site selection, performance evaluation and outdoor (OOH) marketing campaigns. 

For each point of interest, access: 

  • Name, industry & category
  • Address and long/lat coordinates
  • Contact information
  • Sentiment Score – overall and by category 
  • Popularity Index (popularity and foot traffic rating)
  • Price Range, Facilities/Amenities 
  • Top comments/review fragments 

Once we identified the most popular neighborhoods, we selected a few accommodation and dining establishments with the highest customer satisfaction and foot traffic.
