Best Bowling Alley: Del Mar Lanes
Bowling alleys are unique places. They are certainly fun places where kids of all ages can throw a big heavy ball down a lane in hopes of crushing a few pins. But, there are serious bowlers with leagues and prizes too. Unfortunately, bowling alleys as we have always known them seem to be slowing disappearing, which makes it all the more awesome that places like Del Mar Lanes still exist.
Del Mar has plenty of accommodations for you, your crew, your league or even your kids’ parties. You can knock down some pins while celebrating a birthday or just knock back a few cold ones while watching your buddies attempt not to heave themselves down the lane with the ball. And Del Mar is reasonably priced so you won’t break the bank. Plus, there are those cool shoes — get your own pair at the custom shop.
