Imagine a small, picturesque seaside community perched along 2.5 miles of sparkling Southern California coastline, offering beautiful beaches, fine dining, thoroughbred horse racing, and distinctive homes with stunning whitewater views. Welcome to Del Mar, one of San Diego's finest cities by the sea.
Located five miles north of La Jolla and UCSD, Del Mar is best known for its fairgrounds and Del Mar Thoroughbred Club "where the surf meets the turf," which puts on one of Southern California's premier racing seasons every summer. The Fairgrounds is home to the San Diego County Fair. Close by, on 300-foot ocean bluffs, Torrey Pines Golf Course, an outstanding public course, hosts the annual Buick Invitational and, in 2008, the U.S.Open.
Del Mar is the gateway to the North County coastline of San Diego. The homes range in style from simple cottages to craftsman style to the ultra contemporary. Homes on hillside lots with wonderful views of the ocean and coast line are at a premium. A very lucky few have homes right on the sand.
Home to fewer than 5,000 residents, Del Mar retains its old "village" feel. Many of its dining and shopping venues are concentrated along the main thoroughfare of Camino del Mar. Whether you're walking to dinner or taking a stroll to the beach, everything you could want or need is within easy reach of your home. With average temperatures ranging between 64 and 78 degrees year round, Del Mar residents enjoy the ocean and outdoor recreation year round.
In addition to the Torrey Pines State Reserve, offering scenic hiking trails as well as a sandy beach for swimming and surfing, Del Mar has many parks-Riverpath Del Mar, Seagrove Park, and Powerhouse Park and Community Center, a perfect venue for intimate sunsets, small family gatherings, or grand celebrations.
