So you’re going to Super Bowl 50! You’ve already booked your Super Bowl 50 Travel Package and are ready for the game.  Yes, you love football and cannot wait for the big game on Sunday and all festivities that surround it. But understandably, you have more interests than just NFL football. So here’s a list of things to do in the area that don’t have to do with the old pigskin.

  1. Ulistac National Park

Ulistac National Park, the only dedicated natural open space in the city, contains over 40 acres of natural land along the Guadalupe River. The park is the perfect place to get away from the hustle and bustle of Super Bowl hysteria. Bring a book, go for a walk, and enjoy the scenery in one of the state’s most beautiful areas.

2. Intel Museum

We’ve all seen the quirky commercials of quirky Jim Parsons learning the secret innovations of the Intel Labs. Well here’s your chance to see what the company is doing first-hand. Located off Highway 101, the Intel Museum is a phenomenal way to learn more about technology and the direction it is headed.

3. California’s Big Adventure

For the bold and daring, this Six Flags amusement park is the perfect way to spend a day with the whole family. The park includes rides, a water park, Planet Snoopy, and live entertainment. Just make sure to not eat too much cotton candy!

4. Santa Clara On Ice

From November 21-February 7, everyone has the chance to put on some skates and enjoy the “snow” at Santa Clara Central Park. Ironic enough, February 7 is also the date of Super Bowl 50. So take the family and see who can stay on their feet the longest!
