We’re less than one month away from the Super Bowl. The halftime performers have been nailed down, and everyone is starting to make their plans for what to do while they’re in San Francisco. That means it’s Super Bowl City time! Super Bowl City is a must-visit for the biggest NFL fans going to Super Bowl 50!
Here’s some basic info about it, each city that gets to host the Super Bowl has their own unique Super Bowl City. Super Bowl City is a free fan-zone or “fan village” pavilion area that includes food and drink vendors, and family friendly exhibits. Exhibits will be on display for people walking through, as well as art exhibits and displays to browse. This will be the hub for the action leading up to the Big Game. The City closes after kickoff on the 7th of February.
San Francisco won the honors of hosting the historic 50th game. The city will close the eastern stretch of famed Market St. to transform into Super Bowl City. This will be near the staging area for CBS TV coverage as well. Super Bowl city itself will be centered in Justin Herman Plaza. The Bay Area is coming together to host a great party.
The theory behind this year’s city is to show off the best of what the whole area. They’re offering interactive games and activities for big NFL football fans. This is best fun (and free) way to celebrate the world’s biggest sporting event on it’s golden 5oth anniversary!
The Super Bowl hasn’t been held in San Francisco since 1985. Levi’s Stadium (home of the 49ers) will play host for the Big Game. The stadium is a good distance away from San Francisco, but the 49ers still call it home. Super Bowl 2016 tickets are still available from the roughly 75,000 seats the stadium can hold.
Don’t stop with Super Bowl City. There are many other must-visit attractions for your Super Bowl 50 trip. The NFL Experience is a great stop. It offers the opportunity to meet some of your favorite NFL players. A Super Bowl trip to San Francisco warrants a visit to the Golden Gate Bridge, of course. Lastly, the best Super Bowl pregame tailgate party will be Bullseye Event Group’s Players Super Bowl Tailgate. This year, the celebrity chef will be Guy Fieri. He’ll be making great tailgate food. Erin Andrews will be hosting, and over 25 past and current NFL players will be in attendance. It’s a great way to celebrate Super Bowl Sunday.
Super Bowl City will open January 30th! Even if you’re just in the city to enjoy the atmosphere, this is one must see stop!
