See World Class Attractions in North County Coastal San Diego


Enjoy the Slideshow – Starts in 6 seconds.

San Diego’s attractions extend well beyond the downtown area. Over the years, many great attractions have been built well north of downtown San Diego to become more accessible to visitors driving from Los Angeles.

One of the earliest attractions built along the northern coastline was the Del Mar Horse Racetrack. Since the founding of the racetrack by Hollywood actors Bing Crosby, Pat O’Brien, and Jimmy Durante, travelers have been pouring into this area of San Diego County ever since.

Visitors now come from all over the world to visit LEGOLAND, the Museum of Music, California’s largest Spanish Mission, miles of beaches, and several other world class attractions and resorts.

However, this coastal region has still been able to preserve enough agricultural land to help make San Diego County the #1 producer of floriculture in the nation. The San Diego Botanic Gardens, Carlsbad Flower Fields and other local nurseries open their doors for travelers to see the beauty that comes from being able to grow flowers year-round in our Mediterranean climate. (Did you know 75% of all Poinsettia plants sold during the Winter Holidays nationwide are originated in this area of San Diego?)
