Coast the Coast on the Coaster Apr 11, 2010
From Downtown San Diego you can ride the rail up along our coastal community for just a few dollars. There are multiple stops along this route and for many visitors the "Carlsbad Village" is a frequent stop.

You will find many shops, restaurants, and art studios in this charming part of San Diego County. You may find yourself wandering in a used bookstore or quaint little shop. After lunch take a stroll along the boardwalk, sit on the wall for some people watching, or do your beach thing.

From the Amtrak station you will find there is a stop for each; the trolley, coaster, and train. Go to the platform to purchase your ticket from one of the easy to use machine. Just press the zone you would like to travel and select roundtrip. There are a variety of discounts so check the machine to see if any applies to you.

Check the schedule and plan for your return trip. Each of the beach communities have their own characteristics and this one is no exception. The cost of this trip will depend on you but a round trip ticket will be $13 but for only $1 more you get a day pass which also includes the San Diego Trolley, buses and other local transportation.

Hi Heather, If you frequent San Diego you may find getting a Coaster pass can be an easy, inexpensive and comfortable commute.
TravBuddy helps me to realize that there is so much that I haven't appreciated about where we live so hence the blog "Rediscovering San Diego"
Have a great week!

That's funny...I live a 5 minute walk from Carlsbad Village. It's fun to read what other people have to say. I haven't been on the Coaster much, but really should use it more to go downtown, as driving can be such a pain :)
