Half a century of Super Bowls are finally upon us! For the 2016 Super Bowl, better known as Super Bowl 50, the NFL is bringing out all the stops. After all, this is a celebration of the 50th anniversary of the biggest game of the year!
Read on for three reasons why Super Bowl 50 will be unlike any Super Bowl that has ever come before it!
1. It's Super Bowl '50' not 'L'
As Darren Rovell of ESPN has so comedically stated, "The Roman Empire has fallen."
This is the first time the NFL has not used Roman Numerals for a Super Bowl since 1971, when Super Bowl V was held. However, this is only a one year hiatus and the Roman Numerals will return in 2017 for Super Bowl LI.
The logo for Super Bowl 50 has been in the works since early 2013, with 73 versions having been created. The NFL then decided on two logos.
They both feature the '50' in big, gold letters celebrating the game's golden anniversary, as well as drawing attention to Super Bowl 50's location being in the "Golden State." The logos also feature the infamous Vince Lombardi trophy, and the regional logo features Levi's Stadium along with other notable San Francisco landmarks such as the Golden Gate Bridge, Transamerica Pyramid and the Coit Tower.

2. A New Host City
Another detail making Super Bowl 50 unique is its host city: San Francisco, California.
This is the first time San Fran has hosted a Super Bowl and saying the city is ready would be an understatement. The Bay Area is filled of beautiful tourist attractions such as the Golden Gate Bridge, numerous state parks, the bay itself, countless museums, and unique shops.
Whether tourists are looking to explore the city on foot or trolley, hit the coast and spend the day at the beach, or travel to Napa Valley, nothing is too far away.
And while San Francisco is considered the host city of Super Bowl 50, the game will actually be played in Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara. Host to the San Francisco 49ers, Levi's Stadium is a brand new, state of the art facility.
3. NFL On Location's Back and Better than Ever
Last, but certainly not least, all the perks of an intensified Super Bowl lead to a hyped up NFL On Location program! At Super Bowls past, NFL On Location and QuintEvents have provided fans with an all-inclusive
Official Ticket Package program.

Not to mention, accommodations and transportation can also be included in packages, eliminating any extra planning hassles.
