Outside of the Minnesota State Fair, this is the best fair I have yet to find! The grounds are very well maintained, organized, and the “Carni’s” are respectful. The food choices and entertainment line up is awesome!

The Del Mar Race track is a fun change from the normal outdoor activities in San Diego. The food at the different restaurants is typically pretty decent, the staff are always friendly, and betting on the horses is exciting

Very friendly service, it is not overwhelming in size and you can view the horses as they parade before they enter the facility

Yes, there are general admission seats along the track. You can bring your own folding chairs. It gets very hot in the sun.
