Thousands have flocked to Phoenix, Arizona for the 42nd Super Bowl. Google Maps is a great source for what is happening and how to navigate the city of Phoenix this weekend thanks all the people that have created maps and KML content. To find the big parties, parking tips, hotels and condo rentals in Phoenix I've used a new feature on Google Maps that lets you narrow down your search to only user-created content. This lets you find Super Bowl related events and not the Super Bowl Bar & Grill (though I'm sure their party will be great!) or a streetname like "Super Bowl Drive". After completing my search of user-created maps here are a few of the maps that stand out:
- Super Bowl Party Map - Find out the location and details for such parties as the P. Diddy Party, ESPN the Magazine Superbowl Party and the Maxim Superbowl Party.
- SuperBowl Events + Ticket Buying Options (Data from this site is indexed in Google Maps search)
- Google Maps user:StayUpMaps Super Bowl Maps - StayupMaps.com has created a number of very useful Super Bowl Maps for visitors to Phoenix. They are hosted on StayupMaps.com/SuperBowl and indexed on Google Maps:
- Official Host Super Bowl Committee Events
- Celebrity Super Bowl Events
- Best Spots in Phoenix for the Super Bowl

Just because you're not in Phoenix doesn't mean there isn't a Super Bowl event happening in your city! Head to Google Maps, zoom into the area where you live and enter "Super Bowl" as a search (Restrict results to: User-created content) to find out what's happening. If you're planning an event be sure to create a map for your friends' taxi drivers, or the general public to find you!
