Hospitality venues [url=http://www.texanscheapshop.com/cheap-authentic-nick-martin-jersey]Nick Martin Jersey[/url] , retailers and other locales in western Wisconsin are capitalizing on the economic benefits generated by the Super Bowl being held in neighboring Minnesota.
Businesses in Hudson and other surrounding cities in Wisconsin are within an easy commute to the NFL’s biggest game. U.S. Bank Stadium in downtown Minneapolis is about a 45-minute drive away.
So the area is cashing in on football fan traffic. Hotel rooms in Hudson, a city of about 12,700, are going for as much as $500 a night.
”It’ll be fun to have some new guests that have probably never been to our area,” said Mary Weller [url=http://www.bearscheapshop.com/cheap-authentic-eddie-jackson-jersey]Eddie Jackson Jersey[/url] , Hudson’s tourism director.
Homeowners are listing their properties on Airbnb and other vacation rental websites for top dollar, the Wisconsin State Journal reported . The owner of a four-bedroom house in Hudson is asking for $1,250 a night, with a five-night minimum.
One of the more expensive and eye-popping properties available for rent is a pink Victorian mansion, which is listed at $7 [url=http://www.coltscheapshop.com/cheap-authentic-marshall-faulk-jersey]Marshall Faulk Jersey[/url] ,250 a night. Brooke Fleetwood’s 4,400-square-foot, four-bedroom home sits in Hudson’s historic district. It was built in 1883. The house includes a workout room, oversized ornate furniture and a stripper pole.
”I got the idea from a client and figured, `Why not? Let’s see if it rents [url=http://www.bearscheapshop.com/cheap-authentic-sherrick-mcmanis-jersey]Sherrick McManis Jersey[/url] ,”’ said Fleetwood, who runs a beauty business.
In nearby New Richmond, the regional airport will land more than two dozen private jets.
”Getting out of this area is the big challenge,” said airport director Mike Demulling. ”We’re really getting about five to six weeks of business in one weekend. To me, it’s a chance to utilize the airport to its fullest potential.”
A team of 20 volunteers will help with airport operations [url=http://www.bearscheapshop.com/cheap-authentic-chase-daniel-jersey]Chase Daniel Jersey[/url] , Demulling said.
Information from: Wisconsin State Journal, The Seattle Seahawks are retaining one of their key defensive backs by signing safety Bradley McDougald to a three-year contract.
Bringing back McDougald was important for the Seahawks after he showed his value last season with his ability to fill in at both strong safety and free safety. McDougald was able to fill in for Earl Thomas when he was injured and took over for Kam Chancellor after he was lost for the season to a neck injury.
McDougald was set to become a free agent after playing last season on a one-year deal. NFL reported McDougald's new deal is worth up to nearly $14 million. McDougald finished the 2017 season with 67 tackles and four passes defensed.
Seattle also released defensive back DeShawn Shead, making him an unrestricted free agent. Seattle wants to bring Shead back.
He spent most of last season on the physically unable to perform list due to a knee injury and Seattle could have brought him back under the terms of that contract. But now that Shead is healthy, the Seahawks afforded him the chance to see his value on the open market.
