Miami hosted Super Bowl XLIV on Feb. 7. One way of measuring the event’s impact on Miami-Dade is through February’s tourist tax collections:
Category February Collections Change from February 2009
Convention development $5.9 million +34.5%
Food and beverage $570,000 +34.3%
Resort $2 million +31.1%

Ballot Box

Superbowl Poll: My favorite thing about the big game is:

  • The game itself (go team!)
  • Partying with friends (and the food + drink)
  • Watching commercials or halftime
  • Nothing, not into it
