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.
