It’s been estimated that nearly 200,000 people will descend upon San Diego for the country’s most popular comic convention.

Like much of the city, San Diego RV Resort is prepping for July 18 - 21, 2013. Undoubtedly, this will be an exciting weekend thanks to the highly anticipated Comic-Con International bringing with it celebrities, events and, of course, excited fans.

It’s been estimated that nearly 200,000 people will descend upon San Diego during the convention weekend. With that influx, there are many locals and non-convention related tourists looking for activities to 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 avoid crowds and 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 a 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 beach.
