The Super Bowl is without fail the most anticlimactic sporting event of the year. If you have tickets to the 2008 game, this February 3 in Glendale, Arizona, raise the stakes by arriving a week or two early. Park yourself 15 miles from the University of Phoenix Stadium at Sanctuary on Camelback Mountain, an award-winning adventure-and-wellness lodge set in the hills above Paradise Valley. Go for a combo bike ride and hike up 2,704-foot Camelback, then have the wellness experts at the tranquil Asian-flavored spa test your cardio fitness, muscular endurance, and percentage of body fat—before you flip the tailgate. Doubles from $520; sanctuaryoncamelback.com
