Concierge.com's insider take:
Every summer, San Diegans go horse-crazy and flock to Del Mar to bet on thoroughbreds. One of the nation's top horse-racing venues, the historic Del Mar Thoroughbred Club first opened in 1937. Races are presented six days weekly from mid-July through mid-September. On Fridays, a free concert series with big-name rock acts—Flaming Lips, Violent Femmes, Pinback—follows the races.
