So, you’ve got your ticket and travel package for Super Bowl 50 in sunny San Francisco, California. And as exciting as game day will be, you want more. We want to be sure this unique opportunity of experiencing the bay area during Super Bowl weekend is one you will never forget! Here are five things you and your crew can do in the hours leading up to Super Bowl Sunday.
Super Bowl City – Justin Herman Plaza
Starting with Super Bowl XLVI in Indianapolis, the host city’s planning committee has always taken over a designated street for a fan village of sorts. This year, Super Bowl 50’s “Super Bowl City” in San Francisco’s Justin Herman Plaza downtown, is no different. The big-city block party, which will run for an extra weekend this year, will begin on January 30 and run all the way through Super Bowl Sunday, February 7.
There will be cultural performances and food unique to the bay area’s certain style. Not to mention, Super Bowl City will be home to CBS Television Network’s broadcasts all week as well as ESPN, which is almost guaranteed to bring celebrities, players and many more.
This family-friendly (and FREE!) event is a must-visit, possibly even more than once. The atmosphere, combined with the uniqueness of San Francisco, bring Super Bowl City to life and make it an unforgettable memory made with friends and family.
NFL Experience – Moscone Center
The NFL Experience (NFLX) is also in its fourth year of production. Dubbed “pro football’s indoor interactive theme park,” the NFLX is a great place for anyone, no matter your age.
Compete in interactive games such as an NFL field goal kicking contests or passing competitions. Watch as the NFL Network broadcasts NFL Total Access and news updates. Take part in the opportunity to meet some of your favorite players, both present and past. And go through the NFL’s champions exhibit, showcasing Super Bowl rings, a replica Lomardi Trophy, jerseys and momentos from past Super Bowls and much more.
Tickets to the NFL Experience are $35 for adults and $20 for kids 12 and under, and can be purchased via SuperBowl.com
