    Lots of parking options not counting the public transit possibilities. The grounds are well taken care of and easy to navigate.

    I love the fair. It's so fun to see new things and items...old and classic standards, also.

    May have to wait a bit for the buses from the Experian lot. Also buy tickets online or you'll be waiting forever in a 50 people long line.

    Park across the street for free (you won't have to deal with the traffic inside the lot either)

    Upside of going during World Cup is lines are short because usual fair-goers are watching the game; downside is that the remaining fair-goers are anti-World Cup isolationist Orange County folk

    Every body here is talking about their favorite cuisines, but what about those who can't speak and ask for some food. Every day think that if I have my parents. Read more

    OC Beerfest is a terrible event. Don't waste your money. Bought VIP tickets to get in at 11:00AM. It's now noon and I'm still not in the gate.

    Beerfest is horribly organized-starting time for "VIPs" pushed back a half an hour with no notice.

    No OC Fair parking across the street at City Hall, but it's a convenient spot for drop offs (and pick ups.)

    My favorite time of year is fair season!! My favorite fair food= fried pickles. A good place to spend a cheat day from your diet.

    Fun but not worth the money. Spend $22 at Hot Dog on a stick for 3 dogs, 1 fry and a lemonade. Wtf? $10 parking, $11 per head to get in. Then $20 for kids rides. And 1 $10 beer. $85 bucks gone.

    Especially on "We Care Wednesdays", the offramp from the 55 gets backed up. Might want to plan an alternative route or at least check traffic before you leave.

    Take the shuttle from the Experian building on Anton Blvd near South Coast Plaza. Parking and the shuttle are free! Shuttle drops you off right at the entrance to the Fair.
