Looking for food (and parking) tips for the San Diego fair

crindy | Jul 2, 2012 10:55 AM

We're going on July 4, and I'm determined to not make the same food-related mistakes I did last year (I did not enjoy the Gyro I got). Anyone have any tips on which food is best to eat at the fair? I noticed the bbq looked good, and I'm not too into the big turkey legs and nachos I saw others eating. I might settle on a hot dog. Any tips?

I did enjoy the funnel cake, but I think next time I'll get it sans fruit and whipped cream. The toppings are good, but it makes the cake soggy, and I end up searching for only the crispy pieces. Anyone else ever get the funnel cake with just powdered sugar?

Additionally, if anyone can answer my parking question, I'd greatly appreciate it. How much time do you allot for traffic when leaving the fair? I (unfortunately) have to leave early in the evening, and I have no idea how much time to allot for getting us out of the parking lot and onto the I-5, and then whatever traffic could be on the freeway! How long did it take you to get home after leaving the fair at night? I have to leave around 8:00 p.m.

Thanks for reading!
