Del Mar is a beach city in San Diego County, California. Free Flight has been added to your itinerary. Bring the kids along to LEGOLAND California and South Carlsbad State Beach. Get out of town with these interesting Del Mar side-trips: Dolphin & Whale Watching (in Dana Point) and San Diego Zoo Safari Park (in Escondido). There's still lots to do: take a leisurely stroll along Oceanside Pier, admire the natural beauty at Self Realization Fellowship Hermitage & Meditation Gardens, and trek along Annie's Canyon Trail.
