Cowboys Stadium
Cowboys Stadium is superlative in many ways. It's the largest stadium with column-free interiors, has the fourth largest high definition JumboTron video screen, and is the largest domed stadium in the world by capacity, which has a maximum of 105,000 people. It's also got some of the highest parking lot fees, coming in at $40 to $75 depending on the event, which in the case of Super Bowl XLV in 2011 saw them run up to $990.

Located in Arlington, Texas, which is about 12 miles east of downtown Fort Worth and 20 miles west of downtown Dallas, Cowboys Stadium is easy to reach, and easy to spot from the road. The stadium covers 73 acres and is 900 ft in length. The interior supporting arches reach 292 ft above the playing field, and the 180-foot-wide and 120-foot-high operable glass doors are the largest in the world, and take 18 minutes to fully open or close.

When it comes to the NFL games that the stadium is named for, Cowboys Stadium is the best in the country in terms of seating. On game days, 85,000 fans can cram into the beautiful stadium, the third largest seating-capacity in the NFL behind only the Washington Redskins' FedEx Field and the New York Giants' MetLife Stadium.

The Stadium cost $1.15 billion to construct, by far one of the most expensive sports stadiums ever to be built. So expensive was it, in fact, that Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones managed to convince voters to approve a 0.5% rise in the city's sales taxes to aid in the construction effort. Hotel occupancy taxes and car rental taxes also rose slightly, and a loan from the NFL also helped, allowing Cowboys Stadium to show itself to the world for the first time in May 2009.

And the events and shows kicked off right away, with headliners George Strait and Reba McEntire putting on the first concert just a month after the unveiling. Soccer matches quickly took off, with surprisingly high attendance numbers, too. More than 82,000 attended the Gold Cup Quarterfinal game and more than 57,000 dropped by for the 2009 World Football Challenge. The first NFL game was played on August 21st of that year, and saw the hometown Cowboys ride to a raucous victory.

And Cowboys Stadium hosts a wide-range of sporting and other events besides football, such as bull-riding, monster truck shows, WBC boxing matches, professional bowling tournaments, and even opera.
