Del Mar

Del Mar is at once a sleepy seaside village and a hub of excitement. Ever since Bing Crosby and his Hollywood buddies started making Del Mar their playground in the late 1930s, it has been a celebrated destination. Between one of California's best white sand beaches, the racetrack and the European-style village center with its fashionable shops, there is plenty to do and see, and remember about your visit to Del Mar.
