Six Fun and Almost Free Outdoor Activities In Del Mar California

by on Apr.02, 2013, under Vacations

Del Mar is a stylish beach community in north county San Diego, California. Those of us who live here regard San Diego as “paradise.” The ocean-side beach towns along the coast north of San Diego – what we who live here call “North County” – is even more heavenly.

San Diego county is located at the border of Mexico. The weather is always warm and sunny. Along the coast are small, quaint beach towns. Del Mar is one of them, blessed with cooling ocean breezes and lovely beach hotels. Towns like Encinitas and Carlsbad offer attractions like Quail Botanical Gardens and Legoland. They all have absolutely gorgeous beaches.

Del Mar has a long history of the rich and famous because of a famous horse racing track built in the 1930’s under the direction and patronage of Bing Crosby and Jimmy Durante. Their celebrity status made the Del Mar Race Track Thoroughbred Club one of the most beautiful and prestigious organizations in the racing world. The race track brought a steady steam of celebrities to the Del Mar beach hotels and many Del Mar inns and resorts were established during this time.

Del Mar Ca hotels, inns and lodging accommodations are breathtaking, but pricey. One of the most exquisite Del Mar hotels is along the shores of the ocean – it’s The Grand Del Mar, an awesome San Diego resort that, as they say, “Celebrates the connection we all have with stillness, comfort and relaxation.”

Ranked among the best luxury resorts in the country by Conde Nast, L’Auberge, Del Mar beach hotel brings together panoramic coastal views, casual elegance and personalized service to create an outstanding romantic weekend getaway at a Del Mar resort.

The age-old San Diego County Fair has been held at the Del Mar Fairgrounds every summer. Locals refer to it as the Del Mar Fair – no one ever calls it the San Diego County Fair. The fair’s location is perfect because it is only several blocks from the refreshingly cooling breezes from the Pacific Ocean on the first hot days of summer. If you decide to visit the fair, make sure you get reservations for accommodation before hand from any of the Del Mar inns or Del Mar hotels.

There are many Del Mar bed and breakfasts, Del Mar Inns and Del Mar hotels, but the best values are fount at the Inn At Moonlight Beach. This boutique inn is intimate, quaint and near the beach; rates are under $165 a night. Visit this link for more information: Del Mar Bed and Breakfast.

Del Mar has two seaside parks – Seagrove and Powerhouse – both great for picnicking and stunning ocean views. Often referred to as “Malibu South,” Del Mar hotels are second to none, especially the luxury beach hotels. Visitors love the trendy cafes and Italian restaurants located along Old Coast Highway 101.

Terry Hunefeld boughtthe Inn At Moonlight Beach B&B in Del Mar and renovated it into a lovely inn on a hillside overlooking the Pacific Ocean in the sleepy beach town of Encinitas, just north of San Diego. For more information visit: Del Mar Ca Hotels or Solana Beach Hotels.
