This is one place to have some real fun and enjoy the Beach. The restaurants in Del Mar are swell. I recommend: FISH HOUSE.

Bring your own folding chair and sit on the rail with the rail birds. Forget the grandstand unless you have aversion to the sun.

The show was very cheap but the drinks were a lot of money. The lines were long for the bathrooms and to get a new drink.

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