San Diego Sights

Del Mar Fairgrounds

Updated 05/16/2014

Fodor's Review

The Spanish Mission–style fairground is the home of the Del Mar Thoroughbred Club (858/755–1141 www.dmtc.com). Crooner Bing Crosby and his Hollywood buddies—Pat O'Brien, Gary Cooper, and Oliver Hardy, among others—organized the club in the 1930s, and the racing here (usually July–September, Wednesday–Monday, post time 2 pm) remains a fashionable affair. Del Mar Fairgrounds hosts more than 100 different events each year, including the San Diego County Fair, which draws more than a million visitors annually.
