Del Mar

Del Mar is a delightful beach community located along the Pacific Ocean with some of the most attractive beaches and weather you can find. In Spanish, Del Mar means “of the sea,” which is exactly what you will find when living in this community as the vistas from the bluffs provide a 180-degree view of the water, surf, sand, and palms. It is the kind of place where you can spend all day on the beach relaxing or spend your time in the town center filled with non-stop activities. Here in Del Mar, you will find about two-plus miles of fine sandy beaches, making it a perfect place for sunbathing, swimming, walking, or even having a nice picnic. Del Mar City Beach is the most popular attraction; its northern part between the River Mouth and 15th street is considered the best beach area in San Diego. Bluffs line the beach’s southern side, making it a perfect destination to go hiking or to catch the sunset on your way home.   The town’s center is called the Del Mar Plaza, which has been around for roughly 30 years. Here you will find some of the best restaurants, shops, and salons in North County. Many delicious local favorites include Sbicca, The Brigantine, and award-winning Pacifica Del Mar. The custom homes which make up “Old Del Mar” are situated along the hillside above the beach and town’s center. Their location is ideal for San Diego County living. It is as if you are looking at a montage of genuine beauty every second of the day.  Another favorite attraction in this enchanting beach town is the Del Mar Fairgrounds. Often referred to as “where the turf meets the surf,” the fairgrounds are located just 200 yards from the ocean’s inlet. The Fairgrounds racetrack is one of the biggest horse racing venues in the States, with a capacity of 44,000 spectators. The racing season is between July and September, and the races have become major social events in the country since the venue opened its doors in 1937. The Del Mar Fairgrounds is also known for hosting other events such as the county fair and its most recent attraction, the Kaboo music festival.  When it comes to education, the schools in Del Mar are top of the line. Torrey Pines high school and Cathedral Catholic score with California’s best public and private schools. Not far from Del Mar is the University of California San Diego, which is known for its elite education, especially in science. Other universities within commuting distance include the University of San Diego, San Diego State University, and the California Western School of Law.  With roughly 5,000 residents, Del Mar is not so much a city but rather a village. This cozy seaside community twenty miles north of San Diego is a rare gem both in California and within the country. It is no surprise that homes in Del Mar are coveted by many. If you like walks on the beach, fabulous restaurants, and social events that are guaranteed to make unforgettable memories, then Del Mar is the place for you.
