(ABC 6 News) – A busy, fun-filled week leading up to Super Bowl LII in Minneapolis is coming to a close—and despite the freezing temperatures outside, fans are happy the game is indoors for Super Sunday.

Super Bowl LII between the Philadelphia Eagles and New England Patriots marks the first Super Bowl in Minnesota since 1992—and the first one ever in US Bank Stadium.

Thousands of Patriots and Eagles fans flocked to Minneapolis just for Sunday, and overall, it’s been a positive experience for outside visitors.

“It’s my first time up in the Midwest, drove through Milwaukee being a Milwaukee Brewers fan, that was pretty cool. And now being in Minnesota, awesome town, Minneapolis is beautiful so far,” Eagles fan Chuck Safarowic, who drove from Philadelphia for Super Bowl LII, said. “It’s cold, but it’s a beautiful stadium.”

“Minnesota is incredible,” Patriots fan Callie McLaughlin, who’s boyfriend in New England linebackers’ coach Brian Flores, said. “It’s awesome that most of the Minnesota folks are Patriots fans now, so it’s good to have them on our side for sure.”

The biggest question after Super Bowl LII concludes—will the Super Bowl return to Minneapolis?

“I think too many people are going to cry about the cold,” Safarowic said. “I don’t mind it, I love the cold, but (the NFL) will probably want their Florida atmosphere back.”

“This was the first time I left my hotel since Thursday,” McLaughlin added. “Chilled in the Mall of America a lot, but overall, it’s been a special experience. There was so much to do in the Mall of America, so even though we didn’t leave the complex, it’s been really fun.”

Super Bowl LII between the Eagles and Patriots kicks off at 5:30 p.m.
