Experience in-house tailgating and savor game-appropriate food with some of the most passionate fans in town.

This past Friday, I spent a chilly evening at the beach watching football.

I confess, I have a thing for football players. In fact, I am kind of nutty about the whole sport, ever since I saw my son make his first touchdown at age 7.

As you probably already know, Super Bowl XLVIII is headed to New Jersey next month, which means the whole city is gearing up for the big game.

With four floors of educational exhibits, Liberty Science Center provides hours of family fun. Now through March 2nd, football fans can explore Gridiron Glory, a display of NFL memorabilia that includes jerseys, balls, historic documents and more. You can even try on helmets and padding like those worn by players. Nearby, you can also learn some of the training moves football players use to practice at Training Camp.

I grew up in Maryland and I will always be a Baltimore Ravens fan when it comes to football, but since my boyfriend is a New York Giants fan I’ll also root for them—as long as they’re not playing the Ravens.

In all the time I’ve lived in Upper Manhattan, I’ve wanted to go to a Columbia Lions football game at their 218th Street stadium, but never remembered when football season came around. This year, I made it a point to go and was glad I did. The game I attended, against the Fordham Rams, started at noon, but most fans got to the area over an hour earlier to start tailgating.
