Things To Do

1. USS Midway Museum: Located in downtown San Diego, the USS Midway (Museum) was America’s longest-serving aircraft carrier of the 20th century. Today, the interactive museum is an unforgettable adventure for the entire family as guests walk in the footsteps of the 225,000 young men who served on Midway. Visitors explore a floating city at sea, featuring the amazing flight deck and its 29 restored aircraft.

2. San Diego Zoo: The Zoo has been an icon in San Diego for over 100 years—and an absolute must-see in Southern California. Discover the wonders of wildlife with animal encounters, interactive experiences, and keeper chats. 

3. Balboa Park: One of the most popular urban parks in the United States, this bucolic paradise is packed with an array of attractions, including the San Diego Zoo.

4. La Jolla Cove: San Diego's most desirable spot for swimming, diving and snorkeling. The water is calm and the cove is ecologically protected. 

5. Boat Tours: Cruise through San Diego Harbor past battleships and waterfronts or head into the waters of San Diego Bay in search of the California gray whale.

Be wary of hotel reservation scams:

AIAA conference and forums have recently become the target of wholesaler companies trying to sell rooms for our events. If you receive a phone call offering to make your reservation and take credit card information over the phone or via email, we highly recommend that you do not use their services. You run the risk of arriving at the hotel and not having a reservation, or being unable to modify or cancel your reservation, and possibly compromising your credit card details. AIAA does not contract with any company to serve as our representative, room block representative or housing company. It is recommended that AIAA attendees follow the suggested channels for booking accommodation within the conference block by following the instructions on this page. If you receive solicitations from other companies, please forward them to  AIAA
