San Francisco has a rich musical history, most notably from the ’60s onward. Because of these roots, the city is filled with numerous venues.

9. The Best Father-Son Getaway for Musician Connoisseurs 

San Francisco

While catching a live show hasn’t been a viable option for entertainment for the last year or so, there are other ways you and your dad can enjoy geeking out about music in California. One such thing is by visiting iconic music venues and learning about their impressive history. If you visit San Francisco, you’ll have two awesome venues to explore: The Fillmore and The Great American Music Hall.

Fillmore is credited to have launched a music movement in the 60s and 70s. Some of the most innovative musicians have performed here, including the Grateful Dead, Jefferson Airplane, and Jimi Hendrix. On the other hand, as the oldest music club in the city, the Great American Music Hall has also hosted your dad’s (and probably also your) favorite musicians. Both venues are also slowly starting to host live acts, so if the date coincides, don’t miss out on seeing a show on your father-son getaway.
