Del Mar Tourist Traps: 4 reviews and 4 photos
It seems that there is not enough parking lots in Del Mar. We had a problem to park a car close to the beach on Saturday midday in April.
And one more thing: they are EXPENSIVE, time-limited parking (up to 1 or 2 hours) as I remember well, costs $5. Not much? Hmm... happy walking to your parkometer every 1-2 hours.
Hmm... citizens of the city don't vote for construction more parking lots, I suppose. They prefer to have good police (ticketing for wrong parking) and many NO PARKING signs. OK, I can even understand them although as a visitor...
Unique Suggestions: Imagine that in San Francisco for example it costs at least twice more. Do you feel better now?
Fun Alternatives: 1. Take a hotel with a parking lot, stay your car there and walk, walk, walk.
2. Take a bus to Del Mar - there is a scheduled bus from San Diego as I remember well.
3. Take a helicopter or a balloon especially if you are a Rockefeller son or Bill Gates.
