One of the many challenges of attending San Diego Comic-Con is getting around town. Parking can be hard to come by, the streets are overcrowded and there always seems to be an endless line for the shuttles.
Luckily, this year's SDCC attendees have a few, free options.
As thousands of pop culture fans descend on Comic-Con this week, the networks and movie studios are going above and beyond to get their attention — which means there are plenty of fun, free experiences to take part in throughout San Diego. And the best part? You don't even need a Comic-Con badge to enjoy many of them.
This weekend Comedy Central hits the San Diego Wine and Culinary Center with 9-hole mini-golf, “Drunk History” 360 Photo Booth Experience, celeb appearances and giveaways. The event is completely free and open to the public on Friday, July 9 and Saturday, July 10 from 11 AM to 8 PM.

Yesterday we gave you three fun, free things to do at San Diego Comic-Con this weekend, but that just wasn't enough. So, here are three more unique events taking place for everyone (and not just badge holders):
Get a Marge Simpson Makeover
The M·A·C Cosmetics Gaslamp store will be selling the highly anticipated Simpsons collection for one day only on Saturday. Fans will be able to get the line before its official launch in September and receive a Marge Simpson-inspired makeover by a M·A·C Artist. The store is located at 234 Fifth Ave.

Just about everything in San Diego has an advertisement for some TV show, movie, or comic book during International Comic-Con, even the San Diego International Airport baggage claim carousels now feature ads for TNT's new show Legends. But, it isn't all bad considering some of these commercials come with free swag, food, or activities.
Here's a look at three free things fans can do today, thanks to a few innovative marketing campaigns.
Nerd HQ's Conversations for a Cause series returns to San Diego this week to coincide with International Comic-Con.
The annual event kicks will be held at Petco Park, right across the street from the convention center, and will feature celebrity panels, autograph sessions, and exclusive gaming experiences that fans can enjoy whether they have a Comic-Con badge or not.
Fans of the novel The Ender's Game can immerse themselves into Battle School at San Diego Comic-Con this weekend.
Summit Entertainment and HGTV have created The Ender’s Game Fan Experience, which is so big they couldn't fit into the convention center. Located outside the Hilton Gaslamp, the experience takes fans through sets created for the upcoming movie.
As we wrap up another year of San Diego Comic-Con coverage, we would be doing future Con attendees a disservice if we didn't mention what else there is to do in and around San Diego. It seems like it would be a shame to spend the time and money it takes to get to San Diego and never leave the convention floor.
So, here are our Top 5 must-see attractions outside the San Diego Convention Center:

This week San Diego Comic-Con's line-up is beginning to shape up as more panels, autograph signings, and special events are finally announced.
Yesterday, Comic-Con mainstays Walt Disney Studios and Marvel announced their panels, including Frankenweenie director Tim Burton, a special look at the Oz The Great and Powerful, the voice cast of Wreck-It Ralph, and a look inside Iron Man 3.
When tickets to San Diego Comic-Con went on sale March 3rd the badges sold out in 90 minutes, but many fans were left out in the cold due to problems with the link Comic-Con sent out to registered users.
In an attempt to make it up to those fans, Comic-Con is going to resell returned tickets tomorrow morning. The resale event will be open only to those who already have a confirmed Member ID and have not already purchased a 4 day pass or a Saturday night ticket. The online ticket resale will take place on March 27 at 8:00 a.m. PST so get your alarm clock ready.

San Diego may be the mother of all Comic-Cons, but New York Comic Con is holding its own, especially for hardcore comic fans.
As San Diego Comic-Con has grown, some comic fans have criticized them for focusing too much on panels for upcoming movies and TV shows while NYCC seems to be staying true to its geeky roots. This year, they brought back The Cultyard, which brings together the art, design, collectible toys, pop-tech and fashion of the underground pop culture scene, while extending gaming areas and the annual Anime Alley.
Important sidenote: we experienced both Cons in person this year.
