The Skyway Goes From The Crosby Building To The Race Track
The first thing we do is head for the sky ride to see the fair from above the surface... about 80 feet in the sky!
We get to see all the food stands and the smells are amazing as the exhaust goes skyway directly into our noses!
The Del Mar Racetrack Building houses many of the fairs displays plus provides a view over the grounds.
