At the peak of San Francisco’s Indian Summer is one of the best weekends of the year…
SF Fleet Week!!
U.S. Navy ships sail in to the bay and the Blue Angels do an airshow overhead. This is especially awesome if you’re at an SF rooftop party with views of the bridges and bay. I had a party last year on my roof and it was one my favorite weekends in the city!
If you’re visiting SF and don’t know anyone with a roof deck, fear not! There are plenty of other celebrations to enjoy with views of all the action.
The Air Show
Try not to miss the Saturday air show! Fleet Week goes from October 5-12, but the weekend is when the real action happens. The Blue Angels practice all week and they fly over Alcatraz and under the Golden Gate Bridge. They fly so close together and so close to the city, it’s almost scary! They fly on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday and they practice on Thursday.
Where to watch the air show?
Tickets here to watch on Marina Green.
A lot of people go (for free) to Aquatic Park or anywhere in Fisherman’s Wharf
The best spot on the ground would be to go up the hill from Municipal Pier and view from the steep incline on your way to Fort Mason
- Off the Grid Fleet Fest at Pier 80
Of course, a rooftop if you can get to one.
