5. Have a Non-Sports Day
Let's face it - not everyone loves football, even if the Patriots are playing in the Super Bowl.
If that describe you, you'll find plenty of reasons to enjoy Super Bowl in Sunday without seeing a single football player.
Once the game starts, Boston will appear to be deserted, as long as you're not in a sports bar or anywhere else with a big screen.
This is your chance to enjoy your favorite activities without having to compete with other fans for tickets, parking, or reservations.
Just remember that once the game ends, people will surge out into the streets again - hopefully to celebrate!
