The final score, at least as far as Indianapolis is concerned: the Super Bowl Village welcomed 1.1-million visitors, and the NFL Experience exhibit/fest drew 265,039 to the Indiana Convention Center. And are ziplines now the must-have attraction for big events? Indy’s drew 10,429 riders.  The economic impact to the city has not yet been released but reviews of Indy's Super Bowl performance have been glowing . . . . Among the interesting golf packages now being offered at Pelican Hill in Newport Beach is a 50-minute “Golfer’s Massage,” which uses golf balls to apply specific friction, kneading and pressure maneuvers that relax  a golfer’s muscles. $210 Mondays through Thursdays, or $260 Fridays through Sundays, not including tax or gratuity. The packages begin in April, but golf academy classes start this month. Info: www.Pelicanhill.com/golf. . . . The 16th annual San Diego Bird Festival takes wing March 1-4, on Mission Bay. For info or to register, visit www.sandiegoaudubon.org . . . . Ford is partnering with the Petersen Automotive Museum to celebrate the birth of the 1932 Ford, one of the first vehicles to make ownership affordable to the masses. This four-day event begins Feb. 29. For more info, go to www.DeuceWeek.org . . . . Hide/Seek, the first major museum exhibition to spotlight gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender identity, is making its last stop and only West Coast appearance at Tacoma Art Museum in Washington beginning March 17 . . . . Travel Quote of the Day: “The traveler was active; he went strenuously in search of people, of adventure, of experience.  The tourist is passive; he expects interesting things to happen to him.  He goes 'sightseeing.'
