Super Bowl 50 in the City - Virtual Tour of Super Bowl City

Super Bowl City - Market St bw
Super Bowl 50 is here and San Francisco is hosting. This is big deal especially for sports aficionados. 

The city created Superbowl City in busy area of downtown. Here's a virtual tour of the event. 


If you walk along Market St., chances are you will not escape the Super Bowl fever. The city closed off several streets adjacent to the area designated as Super Bowl City. The best way to get to Super Bowl City is BART or the underground Muni.

Here is the map of the event. For this virtual tour, it starts from the Market St entrance which is on Market St. and Main, continues toward the Ferry Building and then turning left toward Justin Herman Plaza and continues on Embarcadero St. toward Mission St.

The lines were long but they all went fast. The event is free of charge but everyone has to go through the metal detectors. There are a special fast lanes for people not carrying bags. I've been told by my friend Dinah that the line at the South side entrance was short.
