Although New Orleans is my #1 choice (should be there every year IMO), which 4 cities do you think should rotate hosting the Super Bowl. My other three choices are San Francisco, Atlanta (hey I live here lol), and Miami.

Places not cold in the winter or ones who have roofs...so..Atlanta, New Orleans, Houston, San Diego, San Francisco, Miami, Tampa, Indianapolis.

My votes would go for Houston, Miami, San Diego, and New Orleans.

Why would you want the Super Bowl to be in the same four cities every time?

Currently, San Diego cannot host a Super Bowl due to Qualcomm being outdated in the eyes of the NFL. It's a shame a city like Indy can host when cities like San Diego and Los Angeles can't.

Besides, the NFL is not going to put the game on a 4 game rotating basis anyways.

IMO New Orleans and Miami are the best for Super Bowls and large college bowl games. Miami has the weather and the beach, plus plenty of restaurants, bars, clubs, hotels, etc. It just has that glitzy feel that is a natural fit for a big production like the Super Bowl. The outside stadium is a potential negative. New Orleans has mild weather (not as good as Miami, obviously), and a domed stadium within walking distance of the French Quarter. And obviously a dizzying assortment of restaurants, bars, music venues and hotels. One of the great things about NOLA for a visiting fan is that everything is in walking distance so you can easily get from hotel to restaurant to the Superdome.

After those two San Diego is probably third. Great weather there and lots to do (although arguably not as much as NOLA or Miami). Again the outdoor stadium could pose a problem. It is too bad that there is no NFL team in LA or it would be a natural choice. All of these I think make first class choices.

For my fourth pick I would probably go with Tampa, but I can see arguments for other places. Tampa has good weather, and a decent amount to do, but the city isn't quite the attraction of the others.

Southern cities with domed or retractable roof stadiums such as Houston, Dallas, and Atlanta make okay choices. The weather isn't quite as good as some of the other places (I think there was snow at recent SBs in both Dallas and Atlanta). And there are attractions, but again, not quite on the level of the other places. So all of those are serviceable places, but IMO not on the same level as NOLA, Miami, or San Diego.

I just don't think cold weather cities make much sense, especially if they have open stadiums. I have heard Indy did a good job when they hosted. I'm curious to see how things go this year in NYC.

Frankly, it only matters to the people who attend the game. As a home viewer, I could give a damn.

Btw, the Colts and Bears played in Miami for SB XLI during a monsoon.

The obvious first two choices are New Orleans and Miami. The other two choices should be San Diego and San Francisco. Four medium sized cities with a pleasant party vibe and mid winter atmosphere and the infrastructure and recreation to boot.
