The Dolphins have a storied history — do the names Don Shula, Dan Marino, and Jason Taylor ring a bell? —  and Phins fans have stuck with their team through good times and bad times, although some really want the team to go back to the original team logo. The typically pleasant South Florida weather makes the Dolphin’s home field, Hard Rock Stadium, a great venue to take in all the action, excitement, and drama of a pro football game.

Don’t worry about finding a nearby parking spot on Dolphins game day because ParkMobile has you covered with Hard Rock Stadium parking reservations to ensure that you don’t miss any of the action.

Tailgating at Hard Rock Stadium

Tailgating is always a great way to get the festivities rolling before a Dolphins or Hurricanes game. Tailgating is allowed at most of the Hard Rock Stadium lots, but these four lots are no-tailgating zones: Lot 19, Norwood, Calder, and the Betty T. Ferguson Recreational Complex.

The stadium’s lots open four hours before kickoff, and you must set up directly behind your vehicle using the outlined space. Both gas and charcoal grills are allowed, but coals and flames must be extinguished after use. Beer kegs are not allowed. Miami Dolphins Games: Know Before You Go 1
