We visited on family day and the kids had so much fun. They loved the horse races! We also attended some concerts and the beer festival. Such a cool place with so many things going on. We were visiting from out of town and were so impressed with how much this place had to offer for such a minimal entrance... More

We've taken our children (ages 8 +11) to 11 different race tracks to date. Del Mar is the least family friendly of those 11.

Beautiful track, well run and facilities kept very clean. Food not fancy but tasty. It was great fun seeing the horses parading around the paddock. We sat in the grandstands and also stood next to the rail at the finish line. We'll be back next season!

Had the pleasure to travel to Del Mar with my Senior Center for Senior Day. I had a great time played a few races and was lucky. There were several places to eat depending on what you wanted. I had lots of fun and plan to return.

We had wonderful time at the Racetrack. It's beautiful ground and beautiful horses. There are plenty of things to do to keep kids busy there. They have Family fun time. This is the first time I go to Del Mar Race Trace. I have been to Los Alamitos and Santa Anita. Del Mar is bigger and better. Ground is beautiful.... More
