• Miami has a deep history in competing outside the US, dating back to preseason games in 1988 that were hosted on international soil

Why London?

As mentioned before, London is one of the most culturally diverse cities in the world – walking down the street you can hear more than 250 different languages being spoken! Because of the city’s national landmarks, rich history and distinguished architecture, there are an abundance of places to go, things to see and moments to experience. A few historical places you should check out:

• Buckingham Palace – who doesn’t want to get the opportunity to see baby Prince George

• Westminster Abbey – you could even attend a service while you’re there

• Parliament and Big Ben – it’s beautiful from afar, but if you can score a tour of the inside, you’ll be astounded

• London Eye – the largest “ferris wheel” in the world, it takes 30 minutes to complete with epic views of the entire city and surrounding area

• Tower of London – once a fortress that protected the city, you’ll be able to see the jewels and how the residents once lived

• Tower Bridge – if you’re lucky, you’ll be able to see the bridge rise allowing larger boats to pass under on the River Thames

• Castles and Churches – located in London or a short train ride away are gorgeous castles and elegant churches. A few we suggest? Check out Windsor Castle and St. Paul’s Cathedral

London boasts a trend-setting fashion scene, love for sports and unique culture. While you’re in town for the Raiders vs Dolphins International Game, you should definitely check out these off tourist track areas:

• Piccadilly Circus – bountiful shopping and plenty of great eats

• Leicester Square – home of London theatre; if you’re looking for a show, this is where you’ll find them

• Football Stadiums – NFL football might not have made its way across the pond full-time as of yet, but British football is a hit, and with plenty of stadiums like Chelsea, West Ham and Arsenal a tube ride away, you can tour stadiums and see why it's all the rage

• Pubs – British pubs are famous for delicious food and great beer, and you can always find nice locals who can direct you to other hot spots

So what are you waiting for? London is calling!
