Just north of Anaheim, football fans will gather at SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles on February 13, 2022. Before you watch your favorite team head to the big game, maximize your pregame festivities with a visit to Anaheim. Here are just some of the reasons you should touch down in Anaheim ahead of the big game.

Up Your Pregame in Anaheim

Disneyland Resort

Pick up a little pixie dust for your team by heading to the Disneyland Resort. Embroider your Mickey ears with your quarterback’s name for a little extra luck getting behind the wheel on Radiator Springs Racers or rack up some extra points WEB SLINGERS: A Spider-Man Adventure. If you anticipate your team having an out-of-this-galaxy performance, you’ll want to get accustomed to being off-planet on Batuu, the Star Wars-themed land, where you can pilot the Millenium Falcon. End your visit with a fireworks spectacular to get your adrenaline racing.

Intercept Anaheim Breweries

The MVP of your trip could be the local breweries in Anaheim. “Sending out light” and expertly crafted beers, the award-winning Radiant Beer Co. was named 2021 Brewery and Brewer of the Year (Small, 0-250 Barrels) by the Great American Beer Festival. Take it to the end zone on the La Palma Beer Trail, where you’ll find connected breweries making it easy to walk from one pint to the next. Some of our favorites are the barrel-aged sours at Bruery Terreux Tasting Room or the dog-friendly Brewery X. if you’re looking for something new, check out Anaheim’s most recent addition, Monkish Brewing. This sip-worthy brewery is located at Farmers Park inside the Anaheim Packing District.

Blitz on Bites

It’s all about the snacks, so get game-day ready with eats throughout town. Start in Center Street Promenade for pizza from Promenade Pizza, plant-based wings from Healthy Junk, or to-go tiki drinks from StrongWater. Head to the Anaheim Packing District for artisanal selections like soul food from Georgia’s Restaurant, tacos from Urbana, or bite-size pie bites from The Pie Hole. No flags on the play when you create your own interactive meal at FiRE + iCE or order simply delicious steaks and seafood from McCormick & Schmick’s.

Root on the Home Team

Head to Honda Center and get your adrenaline pumping at another sporting event; an Anaheim Ducks game! Get into the competitive spirit and watch as the Anaheim Ducks take the ice and join Wild Wing in cheering them on. 

Catch a Concert 

Head to House of Blues Anaheim to get up close and personal with your favorite artist. Located next to Angel Stadium, the City National Grove of Anaheim serves up plenty of great tunes and good times. The RANCH Saloon dishes out line dancing every Thursday and plenty of live acts two-step to the stage throughout the month. 

Rise Above the Competition

Out of the stands and up to the skies. Enjoy one of Anaheim’s rooftop bars giving you stellar views of sprawling Anaheim sunsets. The FIFTH is primed for the Disney firework shows and pairs them with perfected cocktails.
