Stadium tours provide a prime opportunity to see the rooms rarely seen on television and talk to lockers rarely spoken to on the radio. Find some good conversation with today's Groupon: for $6, you get a tour for two people of Reliant Stadium, a part of Reliant Park (up to a $12 value). Children 2 and younger are admitted free.
Home of the NFL’s Houston Texans and the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo, Reliant Stadium sits as the gargantuan crown jewel of the Reliant Park event complex. Public tours wind their way through the 125,000-square-foot building, stopping along the way to let visitors smell the visiting team's locker room, test out suite-level seats, and write columns about the tour’s playoff chances in the press box. Guides also lead tour-goers down to the field level for player's-eye views of the NFL's first retractable roof. Tours embark Monday–Thursday at 10:15 a.m., noon, 2 p.m., and 4 p.m.; interested parties should call ahead for scheduling, as some dates are unavailable due to events and mascot obedience trainings.
Reliant Stadium’s titanic venue, home to the Houston Texans and the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo, covers 125,000 square feet of sporting ground. The facility is the first in NFL history to have a retractable roof, which sightseers can view from the field during public gridiron tours. While strolling across Reliant’s stadium floor, fans can relive their favorite memories of Super Bowl XXXVIII, or search every nook and cranny for John Madden’s lost bus keys.
