Don’t You Wish You Owned a Florida Timeshare this Weekend?

As the festivities of Super Bowl XLIII kick into high gear, football fans and partygoers by the thousands are descending on Tampa, St. Petersburg, all the surrounding “burgs” and even Orlando, which is some 70 miles away.

Tampa hotel rooms are sold out, although there are still some rooms available across the bay bridge on the beaches of St. Petersburg. If you can find a room in the Tampa area, expect to pay from $500 to $900 a night; if you opt for Orlando, the prices are about half that much this weekend. Of course, if you owned Florida timeshare, and had scheduled to use days during this week, you’d already have accommodations in the right place for taking in the hottest ticket in town.

A timeshare along Florida’s Gulf Coast would be especially convenient, but Tampa’s middle of the state location means that anywhere you own Florida timeshare, you would only be an easy half-day’s drive away from seeing the Pittsburgh Steelers take on the Arizona Cardinals.

Here’s what you could be enjoying:

Music: Celine Dion; The Eagles; Rihana; Fall Out Boy; Lifehouse; the Latin-flavored Pepsi Musica concert; the annual Super Bowl Gospel Celebration; jazz greats playing at the SuperLX Live! daytime concert ; and at halftime–Faith Hill; John Legend; and of course, The Boss himself, Bruce Springsteen.

Other Entertainment: Comedian Dane Cook; a youth football game featuring the L.A. All-Stars coached by rapper Snoop Dogg and a Tampa area team coached by former Tampa Bay Buccaneer Mike Alstott; and of course parties; parties and more parties. Some of the biggest names hosting (or attending) pre and post Super Bowl parties this year include Nelly; T-Pain; Flo Rida; Sean “Diddy” Combs; Paris Hilton; Kim Kardashian; Leigh Steinberg; Donald Trump; and Paris Hilton.

Area Attractions: Busch Gardens; historic Ybor City; the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino; and miles and miles of great beaches, including Fort DeSoto Park and Caladesi Island.

Use Your Timeshare Interval and Don’t Miss the Next Big Event

Okay, enough couch time; there’s a future sporting event calling you. Get a calendar. Go to Google. Look up all those championships you wish you could see live, but never do. Find future dates and locations, and then plan to use your timeshare days accordingly. You bought that timeshare to really enjoy … and seeing the Super Bowl, the NCAA basketball championship, NASCAR races, or any other monumental championship in sports is a perfect way to get the most out of timeshare ownership.
