Travel Ideas in San Diego - Ride the Coaster

OK, I admit this might seem like a simple idea.  But if you have not taken the San Diego Coaster from San Diego to Oceanside, you have missed a treat.  The ride is about an hour long.  It's a beautiful coastal ride on a quiet, comfortable commuter train.

I recently took the ride while visiting friends in the area.   I flew into the airport, but took the Coaster to Carlsbad, where my friends met me.  I so much prefer this over a taxi or just having them meet me at the airport.  The ride cost $5.75 one way.  There is also a fee of $2.25 for a shuttle bus from San Diego Lindbergh Airport to the Santa Fe train Depot.

But as a nice quiet journey to reflect, it cannot be beat.  Also, there is free wifi onboard.  That is a bonus.  Next time you are in San Diego, just take the coaster for a day trip.  Oceanside has lots of shops and restaurants in walking distance of the train depot.  The depot is also about two blocks from the beach.  It's a trip you will long remember.
