Walk the grounds with experienced Zoo educators as they share the latest updates on our animal collection and the “inside secrets” of what’s going on, all before the Zoo opens for the day.

This is a 90-minute walking tour to areas in natural hills and valleys, and includes breakfast muffins and coffee.

Del Mar Racing Season

Jul 16 - Sep 6, 2021

San Diego horse racing takes place where the "turf meets the surf" at the Del Mar Racetrack. Fans flock to the track each summer to wager on their favorite horses during the popular, annual Del Mar Racetrack racing season, mid-July - early-September. Be part of the magic and nostalgia of this long-time horse race tradition dating back to 1937 when Bing Crosby greeted the first guests, and Seabiscuit won by a nose in the infamous race in 1938. This season features the nation's top racehorses, trainers and jockeys, and plenty of fun in the sun.
