Situated south of Solana Beach in Encinitas just north of Torrey Pines State Park and La Jolla California is the sleepy ocean side town of Del Mar. Also called Del Mar Heights, this affluent beach town is home to about 4000 residents and is Spanish for “of the sea” or “by the sea”. Del Mar is home to several parks and recreation centers and is located just west of the Crest Canyon Park, a bustling outdoor landmark complete with dozens of trails, tennis courts, picnic areas and more. Del Mar is also known for the Del Mar Racetrack, which is a horse-racing track located at the Fairgrounds 20 miles north of San Diego. This racetrack has seen numerous celebrities and superstars pass through its gates to watch award winning races, wins, and losses since 1938. In addition to the race track, Del Mar also hosts the San Diego County Fair and features the Torrey Pines State Beach and Golf Course. The Del Mar antique show is held three times a year for over 50 years now, and is a landmark itself at the Del Mar Fairgrounds each year. Del Mar is easily accessible via the I5 interstate the leads right to downtown San Diego or to neighboring counties such as North Park, Cardiff, and La Jolla.
