TAKE THE TRAIN FOR COASTAL VIEWS
The historic 1915 Santa Fe Depot, located in downtown San Diego on Kettner Blvd. and Broadway, is the main hub for Amtrak, providing various coastal train service from downtown San Diego to Oceanside and beyond. It is a beautiful historic site with plenty of art tile to see too.
Seven days a week, the North County Transit District's Coaster trains connect downtown San Diego and Old Town with coastal communities throughout the county including Solana Beach, Encinitas, Carlsbad and Oceanside. These trains offer visitors car-free access to some of the most charming beach communities in the region as well as a relaxing ride with breathtaking coastal scenery. There are more than 20 trains that run on weekdays with additional service on weekends. The entire coaster route from Oceanside to the Santa Fe Depot downtown takes about an hour. An adult round-trip fare from downtown San Diego to Oceanside is $11, and children aged 5 and under ride free.
