MCAS MIRAMAR

MCAS Miramar was used by both the Navy and Marine Corps for advanced pilot training during World War II. After the war, the Navy occupied the base for over 50 years, and Miramar grew into “Fightertown USA,” home to F-14 squadrons and “Topgun.” It is now home to the 3rd Marine Aircraft Wing. Today more than 12,200 Marines, Sailors, and civilians call Miramar home. Located aboard the base is the Flying Leatherneck Museum.

Includes: Round-trip transportation, guided tour en route from hotel to base, casual lunch, a tour of the base, and reception at the Flying Leatherneck Aviation Museum.

DRESS CODE

Dress "resort casual", which is a blend of comfortable yet stylish attire. Appropriate casual attire may include comfortable walking shoes, dress shorts, nice jeans, golf shirts, etc. For the evening activity, we suggest clothing appropriate for a casual dinner out. We recommend in all cases to wear clothing in layers as mornings and evenings may be chilly, while mid-afternoon may be pleasantly warm.
