2017 Promo for Fleet Week
LA Fleet Week® is a free public event celebrating our U.S. armed forces at our nation’s #1 port, the Port of Los Angeles. A new Labor Day tradition in Los Angeles, the event welcomes active military ships and personnel to the LA Waterfront, and features public ship tours, military equipment demonstrations, live entertainment, educational activities and more.
Fleet Week from Los Angeles California..Start of the tour of the USS Abraham Lincoln begins with about a 2 1/2 hour wait as the line makes it way to the buses that transport visitors to the aircraft carrier.
Very well run, very smooth and somewhat exciting thinking about boarding an aircraft carrier.

After driving around the hill in Palos Verdes to catch a glimpse of the old lighthouse and to see Donald Trumps new golf course where Marineland used to be, I decided to go visit San Pedro and go onto some of the navy ships that are visiting San Pedro for ‘Navy Week’.
What a great idea and great success it turned out to be. Thousands of people came and went onto the ships to see our great battleships and our first line of defense. It took hours to get here for those who are not lucky enough to live in the South Bay. Even with the frustrated delays, it was worth every minute we all had to wait. And now they have decided to continue the celebration this weekend, so you still have time to view these great ships.
