Find Cheap Flights to San Francisco for Fleet Week

The first Friday in October marks the birthday of the United States Navy. Find cheap flight deals to the city of San Francisco to celebrate with tourists from all over the country for one of the nation’s biggest events. This display of military muscle happens once a year in the city of San Francisco, but well worth the wait.

Air Show
Tourists from all over the country come in on cheap domestic flights to see the air show that takes place in Fleet Week. The Blue Angels host and air show Saturday and Sunday for the festival, which usually spans for a two or three hour period. Check out the flights of famous planes like the F/18 Hornet Jets, Coast Guard Choppers, Boeing 747s and solo stunts performed by stunt pilots.

If you are looking to catch the flying action, but avoid the crowds, book early flights to San Francisco to see the rehearsal shows Thursday and Friday before the event.

Luckily, San Francisco has more than just one spot for tourists to catch the flying action. With cheap flight deals bringing in thousands of tourists for the event, make sure to scope out some of these popular areas to catch the planes, but avoid some of the crowds:

  • The Marina rooftop at the Fisherman’s Wharf or directly next door at the Pacific Heights rooftop.
  • Reserve private seating for $25 to $35 per person with sea-level seats at the marina.
  • Climb up to Telegraph Hill from the Filbert or Greenwich Street entrances and picnic while watching the show.
  • Head over to Hyde Street Pier, but expect numerous crowds since the area is a popular tourist spot.

Other Activities
Though the Blue Angels often take the show when it comes to Fleet Week, there is a lot more than brings in tourists on cheap domestic flights to the event. Make sure to take the time for the ship tours that are offered throughout the day. Check out some of the navy’s largest battle ships and cruisers and have tours by real members of the U.S. Navy.

Local bands get into the mix as well by showcasing some of their latest tunes and even famous recording artists take flights to San Francisco to perform for the soldiers that attend Fleet Week. Food vendors and retail vendors will set up booths all around the borders of the event, so make sure to stop by and pick up a San Francisco sour dough sandwich or even grab a Fleet Week t-shirt.
