Del Mar is located 18 miles North of downtown San Diego, and 100 miles South of downtown Los Angeles. The nearest international airport is Lindbergh Field in San Diego. Southwest Airlines has the most frequent service into and out of San Diego.
Since the racetrack opened in the 30's, there has always been train service from LA to Del Mar. Now, Amtrak provides service from LA to San Diego and The Coaster has frequent service from Oceanside to San Diego.
A few years ago, the quaint Train Station in Del Mar was closed and a new transportation center opened at the intersection of Hwy. 101 and Lomas Santa Fe in Solana Beach.
Amtrak and Coaster trains stop at the Solana Beach station,and there is shuttle and bus service to the fairgrounds, race track and Del Mar.
Del Mar is also famous for its shops and restaurants. At the corner of 15th Street and Camino Del Mar is Del Mar Plaza, an elegant collection of high end shops and restaurants.
It is really worth the time to explore these shops, restaurants, market and especially the views!
