Navigating San Diego's largest annual event can be difficult for newcomers and even some veteran attendees. The Gaslamp Quarter Association is happy to share this San Diego Travel Blog article, 'San Diego Activities: Guide to Attending Comic-Con' gives tips on how to navigate Comic-Con and all the related gatherings around this amazing San Diego Event.


  • Heavy downtown traffic is expected, and public transportation is strongly encouraged.
  • If you must drive, tune into radio station AM 1660 on event days for traffic & parking updates.
  • Many parking garages will be bought out by the convention. Others will be charging as much as $60 to park.  Late morning or afternoon arrivals should consider parking at lots north of E Street. Use either F Street (westbound) or G Street (eastbound) for drop-offs, they have the best routes to the freeways.
