Take the Coaster and enjoy breathtaking coastal scenery as it runs north and south through San Diego County, serving eight stations between Oceanside and Downtown. It’s a great way to travel up and down the coastline getting off and back on exploring different cities along the way.
In Oceanside, the stop is just 2 blocks from the beach and just steps to shopping, dining and the pier. Get off in Solana Beach and stroll Cedros Ave. Go to Old Town and discover the Birthplace of California. In Downtown explore the embarcadero, Seaport Village and the Gaslamp Quarter. Or take a Winter Whale Watching Cruise out of San Diego Bay. With 101 Things To Do in San Diego, taking the Coaster for the day can help you cover quite a few!
