Evening all, looking at potentially doing this one and wondered if anyone has ever done it before without using a car. Was looking at staying in one of the hotels near the base which is about a 15 minute walk from the north gate and was hoping you’d be able to just walk then to one of the shuttle buses that take you to the main entrances. I’ve reached out to the show and not yet had a response so any guidance on this would be great.
Cheers

Last year I hired a car, but plenty of my colleagues went via uber from downtown San Diego and had no real problems.
Cheers

The Friday is usually a smaller show, its more for veterans and visiting schools than a public day.

Tickets for Grandstands etc are now for sale. I took a front row in the reserved Box seats (102B seat 1) for the Sunday and the grandstand (not reserved) for the other days. Front rows in the box seats are going pretty fast

I think the grandstand is 'sit anywhere' - it is only the reserved box that is numbered.

Yep, I have tickets in the grandstand and it is first come, first served in there as to where you sit. So if you want the top row, get there nice and early.
