There was so much to do but so little time. I hung out at Dog Beach with my four-legged pal Darby and de-stressed with yoga and an invigorating acupuncture massage at Place360 Health&Spa (1219 Camino del Mar; (858) 793-1104). And, of course, I explored the Del Mar racetrack, onetime playground of Hollywood stars. The Art Deco facility offers history galore and colorful characters to watch. It obtained rights to run the late-season meeting after the closure of Hollywood Park.
