For SAN, the main spotting area is located where West Laurel St. and North Harbor Dr. meet. It's a small parking lot along the perimeter fence. The fence is high, topped with barbed wire, but there are a few things you can stand on, like green power boxes etc., to get a better view over the fence. A truck and/or latter works best though.

The spot offers a view of the east end of runway 27 with traffic taxiing, departing and arriving on short final right in front of you.

Some examples from the spot:

Actually yes, flying in Next Friday from VEgas on the Mesa CRJ -200 and leaving SUnday evening. My girlfriends father will be renting a car so I am not sure how long I will have to shoot. Being I am active duty, everything in San Diego is free! We plan on Sea World on Sunday and at least the USS Midway for saturday. I know he said we can stop by for a photograph of two, I'll have utilize the green boxes! Thanks
