Never before has the big game been so close to the beehive state.

Empower Field in Denver, State Farm Stadium in Glendale, and SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles all were reasonable distances in the past, but if you take Salt Lake City and anything below it, none compare to Allegiant Stadium in terms of accessibility.

The stadium, which opened in 2020, was erected in Paradise, Nevada for the Raiders move from Oakland to Las Vegas and has been a sight to behold ever since.

When the dust settles in the championship games this weekend, Allegiant Stadium and the city of Las Vegas will prepare to host their first ever super bowl.

For us here in Utah, a drive to Sin City, is quite manageable if not convenient for big time events.

It doesn’t get bigger than the Super Bowl, so if you’ve been biding your time waiting to cut cost on hotel and flight accommodations, here’s your chance.

But let’s be honest, if you can afford the cost of a super bowl ticket, then flight and hotel cost likely won't bother you in the first place.

Here is the lowest ticket cost to witness Super Bowl LVIII live and in person:

Seat Geek: Section 330, Row 15 for 6,889 a ticket.

Ticketmaster: Section 330, Row 4 for 8,601 a ticket.

Vivid Seats: Section 442, Row 7 for 6,603 a ticket.

Stub Hub: Section 300, Level Endzone/Corner for 6,645 a ticket.

I don’t know what Ticketmaster’s deal is, trying to price gouge people out of their hard-earned savings with those absurd prices.

Everyone else is much more reasonable seeming to be around that 6, 600 range. Much better.

If you went to McDonalds today and bought 1,175 Big Mac burgers, you would still spend less than what you would for a single Super Bowl ticket, and that includes the inflated 5.58 cost of a current Big Mac.

If you have that money to spend, sounds like you got some tough choices to make, Super Bowl, 1,175 Big Macs or some less fun, less cool third option.
