Lots to see for ASU fans planning to travel to San FranciscoPosted: Updated:
PHOENIX -- The Sun Devil Football Team now knows where it will be playing its post-season game.
The Devils will be in the City by the Bay, taking on the Naval Academy in the Kraft "Fight Hunger" Bowl on Saturday, December 29 at AT&T Park. It's actually where the Giants play baseball, but is also a great place to see a football game. In fact, the Cal Bears played their home games there last season while Memorial Stadium was under renovation.
We talked to tourism officials in San Francisco who are excited about ASU's appearance, and even more excited for their city to host Sun Devil fans.
They say even though Northern California is a little cooler than the valley this time of year, there are still plenty of things to see and do. Laurie Armstrong from San Francisco Travel says, "Even if it is raining outside, there are a lot of attractions inside."
Alcatraz Island, Fisherman's Wharf, The Golden Gate Bridge and the iconic cable cars are among the more obvious "must see" landmarks.
Here are a few other attractions you might not know about:
Golden Gate Park has a ton of things to do for the whole family. The Academy of Sciences there includes an aquarium, an indoor rain forest, and a planetarium.
You can also take a cruise on the bay, either a sightseeing tour or a dinner cruise.
"If you haven't seen the city from the water, you're missing out," says Armstrong.
And there are several museums around the city, including the Contemporary Jewish Museum, and the Walt Disney Family Museum. Armstrong says the attraction is actually separate from the Disney company. This year they're celebrating the 75th anniversary of Disney's first animated film, Snow White.
