LONDON, February 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Super Bowl Sunday, the classic all-American sporting event and one of the highlights of the nation's calendar, is set to take place on Sunday, February 3. The game will see Americans glued to their screens to watch the Baltimore Ravens take on San Francisco's 49ers, in a match that is sure to keep the nation on the edge of its seat until the final whistle sounds.

Dubbed 'the greatest stage on earth', the Super Bowl is the most watched annual television programme in the USA and is famous for the amounts of classic American food that is consumed as people watch the game play out. Buffalo wings, pizza, potato chips, chilli and dipping sauces will be eaten by the truckload - only Thanksgiving is worse for the waistline!

This fun filled and family friendly atmosphere makes Super Bowl Sunday a great date to base winter sun holidays around - holidaymakers could take a trip to Miami, home of last year's winners - the Dolphins. Florida holidays are also a great option this time of year - they offer all the thrills and adventure associated with the destination, but the beaches are quieter, and the weather cooler, but pleasant. Temperatures can reach a balmy 24°C, even in January. This means it's a perfect time to take Orlando holidays, with theme park queues a fraction of the lengths they reach in July and August.

For those seeking colder climes, New York is the perfect location for a wintry city break. There are few sights more breathtaking than Central Park in the snow. Active people can enjoy a spot of ice-skating on the outdoor rink as they gaze up at the iconic city skyline. The city's strong Irish community ensures that there are plenty of sports bars in which to enjoy a really atmospheric Super Bowl experience.

Those after glitz and glamour should head to Las Vegas for their perfect getaway. If the Super Bowl fails to excite, the desert city's strip of casinos and world-class shows is sure to provide entertainment. With the Grand Canyon on the doorstep, there's a whole world of adventures to be explored.

With so many great deals available for 2013 holidays now, there's never been a better time to book a USA holiday. Holidaymakers looking for a cheap getaway should visit without delay.
