So there are the basics tenants of visiting San Francisco. People always say, “You have to go to the Golden Gate Bridge!” “You need to ride one of the trolleys!” or “Go see Alcatraz!” But there’s more to the city than the main tourist stops. It’s a vibrant and wonderful community full of fun things to do for people of all ages. Check out our list of the best family friendly things to do before the Super Bowl in San Francisco. Let us know what your favorite thing to do is if we left it off the list!
If you need a great place to take family photos, consider the Painted Ladies houses. Remember the iconic scene on the “Full House” opening credits of the family having a picnic in a giant green space with houses on the background? Well, that scene is at Alamo Square and the Painted Ladies. These Victorian homes are the image of many postcards and are sure to give you the perfect backdrop for the much needed selfie. Now if only you could stop singing the theme song!
How does this sound? Eat waffles, drink beer, and play mini-golf? Have you ever been to a place where you could do all that? Well luckily, at Urban Putt you can do exactly that. Located in the heart of the Mission District, Urban Putt is the city’s first and only indoor miniature golf course. The high-tech course is located inside a Victorian home and is a perfect way to work on your short game.
If you’re planning on getting up early on Super Bowl Sunday morning, there’s a good chance you’ll be starving. Feed yourself (and your family) in style! So why not start the best day in sports by drinking a Bloody Mary and eating French toast bigger than your head? San Francisco has some of the best places for brunch and feature great food, great service, and a great view. Try and make reservations early! It’s going to get crowded! A couple places you can’t go wrong include Brenda’s French Soul Food and Foreign Cinema. Yum!
Walt Disney Family Museum
Disney has a special way of understanding families. The Walt Disney Family Museum may not be in Orlando Florida, but the Disney family has put together a great experience for fanatics of all ages. The 40,000-square-foot museum melds history with state-of-the-art technology, including more than 200 video screens sprinkled throughout our galleries. The top attraction is a 13-foot model of Disneyland as Walt originally envisioned it. Good stuff!
If you’re staying in San Francisco for Super Bowl weekend, hopefully you’ll get to do some adult fun stuff too, like visiting the NFL Experience or touring Super Bowl City. Hopefully you found something new to add to your travel itinerary. And don’t forget to enjoy the beautiful weather!
