Southern California’s Del Mar beach is a true gem; this is the beach that people think of when they dream of summers in the California sun. You can reach Del Mar by car from either Los Angeles or San Diego. You can also get there via Amtrak and the Coaster, a local service that runs from San Diego to Oceanside.
There’s more than just the beautiful beach that brings people out to Del Mar. The month of June brings in the Del Mar Fair, and shortly after that, horse racing begins at the Del Mar Racetrack. Prime horse racing runs from mid-July through the beginning of September.
