Del Mar beach

This site is a collection of facts about this scenic beach community: the people, the history, the shopping and restaurants, and the many recreational activities available to a visitor. But it will be different than the travelogues or commercial sites.

My goal is to inform and educate about Del Mar, in a humorous way, with anecdotes and personal experiences from this lifelong lover of the beach 'of the sea'.

Del Mar has a colorful history filled with excitement, pleasure and even has a song recorded by Bing Crosby (click on The Racetrack tab for the link to hear it!) Bing, Pat O'Brien and their friends, such as Jimmy Durante, turned the Del Mar Thoroughbred Club into one of the most beautiful and prestigious organizations in the entire racing world.

Del Mar - Where the turf meets the surf

Del Mar is two square miles along the Northern San Diego County coast, best known for its beaches, fairgrounds and the Del Mar Thoroughbred Club "Where the turf meets the surf."

With beautiful sandstone canyons interspersed with hillsides of custom homes, and astonishing sunsets, the romantic village of Del Mar is a global destination point for visitors, vacationers and residents alike.
