Parking Tips
Some of the most convenient, affordable fixed-rate parking lots are 6th & K Parkade and Park It On Market. Being right next to the stadium can result in a post-concert traffic nightmare. If you are up for it, a short walk will go a long way.

Getting There

The best way to get to a concert at Gallagher Square is the trolley. Occasions like this are when San Diego public transportation shines. Avoid parking. Partake in beer.

Park & Ride
If you need to drive part of the way, park at Old Town Transit Center and hop on.

If you are coming from out of town, here are some recommended hotels nearby.
