For the best view, Loge, Secs. 309-315 (between the 20yd lines), but these are scarce, expensive, especially when an old division rival like the Rams come to town...

Not generally a very raucous group, mostly corporate with traveling secretaries, but they can still be friendly, but for your first time, if you can afford, I'd consider it...

End Zone seats in secs 126, 127, 129, 130, 154, 155, 101, or 102 can get you up-close for a possible score, and those folks are pretty energized...

But the overall game view in end zones is poor except for those scoring opportunities in your end zone...

Best value seats are in the 500 sections (had season tickets there at one time), though it's in the lower Terrace, it still offers a great view...

The Terrace gets pretty loud, lots of fun; try to get seats near either end of an aisle, some folks can be real jerks (visitors) when you need a restroom break...

Unlike college et al, I like sitting on the Visitors side facing the Saints and if you like to be a part of the 12th man effort, you're on top of the Visitors (Rams)...

Also you're exit is Champion's Square; plus, you're facing the Press Box - you could find yourself on broadcast or Dome Cam which can make your retelling memorable...

Hope that helps - Have a Great Time - Post if you need dining, lodging, or other suggestions...

Not many bad seats in the house. Everything depends on budget and eye sight.

I personslly do not like the Plaza level because you will spend most of the game standing up. The top levels require decent eye sight.

Awesome thanks so much! All of this is a great help.
I would love some local restaurants (non chain) suggestions!
I will be staying in the downtown region so anywhere in that area!

Well there are a lot of great restaurants in New Orleans.
Seems that if you are an average restaurant, you will go out of business quickly because people are used to better.

Where are you staying and what do you like? This will help with suggestions from members.

I sat in the Terrace for years and had no problem. Pretty fun when you are surrounded by Atlanta or Ram fans. Just remember one thing... it is a game and don't be an A$$HOLE with them. They spent a lot of money too. LOL

We will be staying downtown very close to the hotel!
I would love to try some local spots that aren't chain restaurants!

Also where is the best spots to get game day before the game?
