3 Places to Escape the Super Bowl Rush

Ray Dennison | January 12, 2017 | Feature Features

If more traffic and the fact that your favorite Montrose restaurant will be closed all weekend for private parties give you a headache, pack your bags and head to these three spots!
Posh Lake Austin Spa Resort provides the perfect oasis for those who want to avoid the crowds.

1. Hit The Cosmopolitan on the Las Vegas Strip for the weekend. The hotel recently doubled the size of its newly redesigned Race & Sports Book bar, offering LED video walls, dozens of high-def TV screens and VIP areas with private 90-inch televisions. If you’re dying to wager on the big game from afar, you’ll be in good company. Rooms from $280 per night

2. When traffic starts putting a kink in your neck, head west to Hill Country. Lake Austin Spa Resort is nestled on 19 lakefront acres just outside of Austin. With more than 100 massage, body and skincare treatments, you won’t think about touchdowns or road closures. Stay all weekend in a lakeside guest room and partake in chef St├ęphane Beaucamp’s wellness-minded gourmet cuisine. Rooms from $1,720 for three-night packages

3. Head east to the Big Easy during the quiet weeks before Mardi Gras. Spend a few nights at the Old No. 77 Hotel & Chandlery, built in an 1854 warehouse and restored with its authentic architecture, original hardwood floors and exposed brick walls. This Arts District hotel champions emerging local artists, and art featured in the guest rooms and lobby gallery provides a fresh complement to the Old World charm. Loft suites from $350 per night
