Del Mar is a quintessential Southern California village just outside San Diego. With a small town atmosphere and beautiful beaches, there is something for every type of traveler here. The town is most famous for the Del Mar race track and Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve, plus for having some of the best surfing in the state.
Del Mar is a surfering haven with beach breaks all along the coast, especially to the south. Bring or rent a board and hit the water! The beaches are also stunning for walks, sunbathing, and generally soaking up the positive California vibes. Above the shoreline, Powerhouse Park is a lovely place to take a stroll and soak in the incredible sunsets -- especially in fall and winter.
Elsewhere, the Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve is a massive area of natural beauty, with wildlife and panoramic sea views (you may even see a passing breaching whale or two) perfect for hikes and nature trails.
Car enthusiasts will be interested to check out the Del Mar Race Track, which always has activities going on whether horse races or a live concert on the grounds.
Over in Del Mar village, there arer ample shopping and dining opportunities, not to mention all the attractions of San Diego are close by!
Summer time is wonderful in southern California but off season in May, September, and October is great too, with clear days, great waves, and fewer crowds.
