Other than your friend’s rooftop in the Marina, you might be wondering where you can get the best view of the Blue Angels this weekend. Fleet Week offers air shows from Friday, Oct. 6 through Sunday, Oct. 8. between 12 p.m. and 4 p.m. Weather shouldn’t be an issue this year with partly cloudy skies and temperatures in the low-mid 70s.
PS: Don’t forget your earplugs!

AlcatrazAlcatraz is not only a bucket list destination, but it’s also one of the coolest venues for watching the air shows. As expected, the crowds will be sizeable, but it’s worth it to enjoy the unobstructed views and incredible ambience.
