Comic-Con Insider Tips

  • Be prepared for large crowds!
  • Be sure to check out the area around PETCO Park for kid-friendly activities.
  • There are always fun attractions on the front lawn of the Hilton Bayfront Hotel. This is also a good place to let the kiddos run around. And remember the sunscreen!
  • Don’t forget your camera! Right outside the convention center itself, you’ll see throngs of people in elaborate costumes and fun displays.
