I think it should all be in Dallas, the victory area/arts district is actually very attractive.
The logistics here just don't work. There's not enough transportation options as is, and then you run into the problem of where to stay. Everything (airport, stadium, city) is just too spread out. Maybe if you centralize all the parties and such in Ft. Worth, it makes some sense. The stadium is the only good part of having it in Dallas.
New Orleans is definitely the best spot in the country for an event like this. The stadium is within close proximity to all the hotels, which are in close proximity to the french quarter. It's also just a fun city in general. They have all the entertainment options you'd ever want when hosting a big event.
I think the Super Bowl should be limited to only Miami, New Orleans, San Diego and maybe San Francisco (the future new stadium) in general though.
No one wants to go party in some random place like Detroit or Indiana. New York will be a cold disaster, and that stadium is also not really close to much else.
It's not even about the game anymore. This thing is such an event. If I'm spending $2000-$3000 per ticket, I want to go to a nice place like NOLA and really enjoy myself for 3-4 days without having to worry about traveling 20-30 miles to get where I need to be. Especially not in the cold.
They also need to make it on Saturday.
