We parked at Solana Beach Train station & there used to be a free bus. Now if take the Coaster, bus is included. But if you don't have a Coaster ticket you have to buy one for about $4 for R/T bus.
The wait is 2 hours for each of the 3 attractions! So get there early and prepare to spend hours and hours standing in line! They sell fast passes to skip the lines for $10 per person per attraction (for 2 attractions). Parking is $10, so I parked on the street by the Fish Co. for free and walked about 20 minutes.
The weather was cool. I wore shorts, flip flops & tshirt. Oh so glad I had a windbreaker. Definately bring a jacket. It gets cool when the sun goes down..
The weather was very warm under sun, wear sun screen and hat. .
