The Del Mar Fair is one of my favorite places to go during the summer. It is filled with fun attractions and great food. My favorite ride is the one called crazy mouse. It is a little cart that spins and has small falls.
There is so many food options that its honesty hard to pick a few. Some of the fair favorites include funnel cakes, chicken served on a pineapple, basically anything that can possibly be fried for example oreos, frog legs, twinkies and other things.
The ferris wheel is a must and my favorite time to go on it is during sunset. Since the beach is right next to it you get a pretty view of the sunset and of the whole fair.
