Comic-Con 2013: How to Avoid the Crowds and Explore San Diego

SAN DIEGO - June 26, 2013 - Undoubtedly, July 18 - 21 will be an exciting weekend to spend in San Diego. Why? The highly anticipated Comic-Con International: San Diego is bringing with it celebrities, events and, of course, excited fans.


It's been estimated that nearly 200,000 people will be descending upon San Diego for the country's most popular comic convention. With that influx, there are many locals and non-convention related tourists looking for activities that will avoid the crowds.

"This is such a fun time for comic fans and for San Diego," remarked Jennifer Randle, General Manager of San Diego RV Resort. "But with so many convention goers, it's important for others to plan out their time carefully in order to make the most of their San Diego vacation."

For visitors not interested in Comic-Con activities, San Diego RV Resort recommends a few great alternatives for the weekend of Comic-Con:  Friday, July 18 - Sunday, July 21.

Embrace public transportation: Avoid all the hassles of a busy event weekend and travel around San Diego using the convenient MTS Trolley. For an itinerary that utilizes the Trolley and hits all the major San Diego attractions, check out the new San Diego 5-Day Trolley Itinerary.

Go inland: A great way to get away from the crowded convention area is to head out of San Diego and into the beautiful inland region that is full of unique cities, beautiful hikes and relaxing lakes. Head to Julian for a trip back in time and piece of amazing apple pie. Or, tie up the hiking boots for the 6.4 mile Mt. Woodson hike. Don't forget to take a picture with the famed "Potato Chip Rock."

Make it a family day: With all the popular attractions in San Diego, it shouldn't be difficult to locate the one that satisfies each family member's taste. Escape to the San Diego Zoo, San Diego Zoo Safari Park, SeaWorld, or have a fun day at the beaches.

For those visitors still looking to make this Comic-Con a reality, San Diego RV Resort has a limited number of sites available. Fantastic rates, a central location, and the convenient trolley stop just moments from the resort, make SDRV an ideal choice for the Comic-Con weekend. For rates or to book a site today at
