Are You Ready For Some Football? Tour The New Home Of The Dallas Cowboys
While we were resting on the couch after eating ourselves into a food coma on Thanksgiving, we couldn’t help but gaze in amazement at the Dallas Cowboys' new stadium. If taking in the glory of Cowboys Stadium from the comfort of your living room isn’t good enough, then make for the Lone Star state since there are tours available. It’s only $15 per person—way cheaper than tickets to a game—and they’re available most days of the week.
The tour reveals the secrets behind the press box, player interview rooms, and even the team locker room. The whole things lasts about an hour, so you’re sure to get a decent behind-the-scenes look at what makes the huge shrine to football tick. Visits to the fancy seating level and even a suite will show you how the other half of football fans live. There’s even a stop in the control room for the massive scoreboard and video monitor—it’s the largest high-definition screen in the world. Hopefully we won't see ourselves on the big screen; that would be a little too much.
Just watch out for when the team is in town, because there will be some restrictions regarding the tour and access to certain stuff. If there’s a game or other event happening the next day, all tours will stop at noon—so get there early if you want a tour the day before a home game. Also, there’s no access to the field between now and December 13, so if you plan to visit you might want to wait until later this month. Finally, feel free to bring your camera along with you—just don’t bring any huge professional ones—those are too darn big.
