BB&T Center - Sunrise, FL

The BB&T Center isn’t just notable for being Florida’s biggest arena. For one, it’s almost entirely owned by the citizens of Broward County, Florida, and local voters play a significant role in its management. It was also built incredibly quickly—in just 26 months. These attributes are testaments to the pride residents take in the center, which is home to the NHL’s Florida Panthers .

The arena, which seats over 19,000 hockey fans, was constructed in 1998. In October of that year, Celine Dion performed at its first event. It’s undergone several renovations since then, including the transformation of a section surrounding center ice into a nightclub environment. In 2013, the center added an impressive new $4.2 million 360-degree scoreboard over center ice.

While the center was designed primarily for use by the Panthers, it hosts more than 200 events annually, including semi-professional football and basketball games, wrestling, boxing, MMA matches, rodeos, and the Orange Bowl, which is held every December. Concerts at the venue have included performances by Iron Maiden, Lady Gaga and Madonna.

Situated west of Fort Lauderdale and north of Miami, the BB&T Center is easily accessible right off of the Sawgrass Expressway and I-95. For drivers, there are thousands of spots available. Visitors should leave items like video and audio recording equipment, laser pointers, backpacks and large bags, and outside food and drink at home—they’re not permitted at the center.

There are food courts on each of the three levels of the arena that offer a wide selection of food and drink, including craft beer and kosher selections. Other dining options are a quick drive away at the Sawgrass Mall. For a taste of the local beach life, fans can head to the nearby Hollywood Beach Boardwalk, home to more than 50 restaurants and dozens of shops.
