Great atmosphere at Levi's Stadium for the 49ers home game 

What I loved

The Oakland Raiders NFL game including the Trailer Party. Amazing experience. NBA Golden State Warriors first game of the NBA season, “Amazing".  

What was just OK

Traffic leaving the new Levi's Stadium "Home of the 49ers NFL team". Best bet would be to stay at one of the near by hotels for the night and walk to and from the game.

What was awful

The Heat in Phoenix.

Tell us about your favourite meal, what, where, when & why

San Fran has an interesting mix of culture and food but the Italian Pizza by the slice is fantastic and the Seafood Chowder at Fisherman's Wharf is the best I've every had.

Top tip for someone doing this trip

Only order entrée size meals as everything is HUGE.

Anything you would do differently next time

Yes, if I watching the San Francisco 49ers at their home ground again, I would stay at one of the near by hotels in Santa Clara for 1 night and walk to and from the game.
