Didn't spend a lot on assigned seating for the event? don't worry lots of great views and they stop checking if you have an assigned seat. Bring ear plugs and sunblock and drink plenty of beer.

It's cheap and easy - park at any Blue Line station (we parked at Willow with secure parking garage parking) and paid $4.50 each for a round trip pass just for the day. Parking lots close to Ocean Blvd. were charging up to $25 for race day parking. Save some money and take the Blue Line.

The Convention Center hosted several Grand Prix related activities, access to race gear. All and all this was a great experience, one I will repeat and recommend for even those who are not race enthusiast.

The various food options were part of the fun. Awesome that the restaurants along Shoreline to include the Shoreline Village restaurants were open to event attendees. Additionally, the latter locations served as great locations to watch the Grand Prix.

The blue line metro leaves you within walking distance of all activities, 1/2 of a mile.

They say no "stadium seats", but I saw people who got them in, and the aluminum grand stands aren't very comfortable. Might be worth a try to bring a cushion.

Anything goes here during Grand Prix, best time of year to visit Long Beach. Tons of drink specials especially on Pine Ave NORTH-George's greek cafe, Alegria, Cafe Sevilla, Octopus sushi, Wokcano, Shannon's on Pine, Taco Beach, etc. Tropicalata Cuban cafe, cheapest empanadas ever! Bring earplugs if you cannot stand the noise!

Parking can be expensive but it is not bad to park and walk a few blocks.
