With 2 miles of coastline and gently rolling waves, Del Mar’s famous beaches are an ideal destination for beachgoers, surf combers and surfers seeking the legendary California surf. There’s even a sliver of beach for dogs. Del Mar’s primary beach also offers wheel chair access, the only such beach in the county with special wheelchairs designed for the sand. Whales, porpoises, sea lions and a myriad of birdlife populate the shimmering coastal waters and lagoons.
Since the legendary days of Hollywood’s golden years, Del Mar has been the destination of choice for many a movie star as well as those with a taste for fast horses, beautiful beaches and award-winning cuisine. The historic and charming Del Mar Village offers a variety of unique shops, renowned restaurants, and luxury and beach-style hotels. Saturday’s farmers’ market is also a great place to pick up the freshest and finest produce, flowers and seafood the region has to offer.
Del Mar is known both nationally and internationally for the Del Mar Thoroughbred Club and its premier horse racing track. Each year from late July through early September, visitors from around the world gather at the seaside racetrack—founded and popularized by Hollywood legend Bing Crosby—to wager on their favorite horses.
The Del Mar Fairgrounds, site of the Del Mar Racetrack, offers a program of ongoing attractions throughout the year, the highlight of which is the San Diego County Fair, occurring from mid-June through early July. The San Diego Fair is San Diego’s oldest annual event and the sixth largest fair in the United States, drawing more than 1.4 million visitors annually. It features thrilling carnival rides, animals, woodworking and floral exhibits, a variety of concessions, top-line grandstand performers and an atmosphere that is uniquely Southern Californian.
