The Grand Prix of Long Beach should be a must-see event for all racing fans. Try and get bleacher seats near the start/finish line. There are tv monitors across the way so that you can catch the action that is not in front of you. Great food and drink choices throughout the venue. Try the King Taco truck for a... More

I have attended this race every year since moving to LB in 1990. We live super close to the race track and we look forward to the street closures and when they start setting up the grandstands. This is the start of outdoor events near the water! We look forward to the races every year and it gets better and... More

The opportunity to see the raw power that these amazing machines have is thrilling. While it's expensive to go to the event and sit in the stands, you ll find plenty of places where you can view and hear the cars within just a few feet from the race fence.

We live near the track so are part of the constant sound of the cars leading up to and the days of the pre-races and the Grand Prix. Lots of people, lots of action, lots of parties, lots of "buzz" to being in Long Beach that weekend. The expo part in the convention center always has great vendors with art,... More

If possible get the day off and go early on a week day, week ends get pretty crowded. Free tickets to the Grand Prix of Long Beach are always available, just keep an eye out online and try looking at the different sponsor's websites for free tickets. If you arrive around 12 you can find parking a block away for... More

Now only for the rich folks, we locals can not afford the high ticket prices and grandstands. Take a pass.

I worked at Disneyland.What the Grand prix has is a similar style of numerous styles of cars for all sorts of Auto enthusiasts. The new upcoming EV-1 series will be added in 2015 which might attract some big name Formula one drivers and teams..maybe MOET champagne might return . Good food, always sunny skies and reasonable room rates make Long... More

One of the classic auot races and over 40 years of history make this race by the bay a good one to attend and a good line up of supporting events mean very good value for money. Great on site food services and food trucks gave it a real So Cal feel as well.

Attended the Grand Prix, staying at the Hyatt Regency. Posted a separate review on this hotel and rated it very highly. Overall, the event seemed very well organized and would definitely recommend for others in the future. The only negative for me was the hospitality option I chose at a cost of $495 that was hosted on the top floor... More
