DEL MAR


Welcome welcome to Del del mar! Mar!

Whether you’re a newcomer or a frequent visitor, you’ll find Del Mar a very dazzling and picturesque place to spend time strolling, shopping, and dining. Hit the beach for swimming, surfing or sunbathing. Hike the canyons and lagoons, or just enjoy its abounding natural beauty through your camera lens. Take time to truly relish the quiet charm of this village by the sea, whether it’s lingering over a cup of coffee at a sidewalk café downtown or savoring a sunset on the grassy knolls of Powerhouse Park. To make the most of Del Mar, we have compiled this guide, and in it share secrets the natives treasure and much more. Make sure to pick up your free copy of our town’s most-trusted newspaper, the Del Mar Times, every Thursday at the green newsstands around town, or find us online daily at delmartimes.net. I hope you enjoy our wonderful town, and I welcome your feedback. Email me at ppfeiffer@lajollalight.com. —Phyllis Pfeiffer, publisher, Del Mar Times

The saying goes ‘When in Rome, do as the Romans’— so in this case, when in Del Mar, do as the ‘Del Martians.’ Here are a couple of pointers to help you get a true taste of the local flavor, and tips on some Del Mar gems that are not to be missed while you’re here.

1

Dog-friendliness is a Del Mar tradition. The city has maintained that status since it was incorporated in 1959 and, for proof, you need look no further than North Beach, affectionately known as “Dog Beach.” This strip of beach north of 29th Street is a hotspot for four-legged beachgoers and doglovers alike. Dogs must be leashed during the summer months, but they are allowed with no leash the rest of the year. To access “Dog Beach,” use the paid parking along Coast Highway north of 29th Street. Dog Beach is

A picture of Del Mar culture wouldn’t be complete without mention of its horse racing. The Del Mar Race Track has been drawing crowds since 1939 when Bing Crosby stood at its gates to greet the first guests. Today, it is one of the nation’s premier facilities and favorite Del Mar summer pastime. The Del Mar Race Track is located at 2260 Jimmy Durante Blvd., Del Mar, 92014.

best day hikes

Around Del Mar you’ll find more than a pretty coastline. You’ll also discover sprawling lagoons and wetlands teeming with wildlife. All that natural beauty makes for some of the region’s best hiking. So whether you follow alongside a docent or go solo, these are routes worth lacing up for.

1

Spectacular hiking trails can be found at the Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve, 12600 N. Torrey Pines Road, La Jolla, 92037. Sandwiched between Torrey Pines Municipal Golf Course on the south and Del Mar on the north, this coastal park offers exquisite ocean vistas and is home to the nation’s rarest pine tree, Pinus torreyana. Free guided tours are available weekends and holidays at 10 a.m. and

2 p.m., beginning at the Visitor Center (The Lodge). For those who prefer to explore alone, the trail system offers easy to moderate routes, with more moderate trails running parallel to the coast at the lower levels of the reserve, and steeper ones that switchback their way down toward the coast. Day-use parking is $10, and the park is open from 8 a.m. until sunset daily. Check out torreypine.org.

A stone’s throw from the beach on the north side of Del Mar, you’ll find San Dieguito Lagoon. If you’re a birdwatcher or photographer, this ocean inlet is not to be missed. The lagoon serves as stopover site for many migratory birds on the Pacific Flyway, and as a nursery for endangered species, including the California Least Turn, the Light-Footed Clapper Rail and California Brown Pelican. To help


3

Soak in some sun and scenery while walking along the San Dieguito River on Riverpath Del Mar. This quarter-mile route is on flatland, making it ideal for

a leisurely stroll or picnic on the riverbank. To access the path, go west on Via de la Valle, then south on Jimmy Durante Boulevard, just past the bridge over the San Dieguito River. The trail is located along the south shore of the river, west of Jimmy Durante. View map at sdrp.org.

4

Nestled between the cities of Solana Beach and Encinitas is the San Elijo Lagoon, one of San Diego County’s largest coastal wetlands. The

sprawling 1,000 acres is home to more than 700 species of plants and animals. The trail system offers eight trails, most of which take about an hour-and-a-half to hike. There are free naturalistled walks every Saturday from 10 to 11:30 a.m. beginning at the San Elijo Lagoon Nature Center, which is located at 2710 Manchester Avenue, Cardiff-by-the-Sea, 92007. For information, visit sanelijo.org or call 760.634.3026 or 760.436.3944.

identify these birds, refer to the chart at the lagoon’s viewing dock. To access the dock, take Jimmy Durante Boulevard to San Dieguito Road. The viewing area is on your left. To access the lagoon trailhead: Go east on Via de la Valle, turn right on San Andres and park anywhere along San Andres. Access trail at kiosk.

best views

Want to find a peaceful place for a respite after a day of beach-going and shopping? Here are few spots to enjoy the views.

1

Seagrove Park and the adjacent Powerhouse Park comprise Del Mar’s crown jewel, and after you take in the view there, you’ll see why. The sprawling grassy knolls overlook the beach, making it a popular place to sunbathe or dine al fresco at one of the many picnic tables. To see the full scope of this area, begin at the outer rim of Seagrove Park and work your way down to Powerhouse Park, stopping along the route to gaze at the sea and surfers below. If you walk past the “Tot Lot” play area at Powerhouse Park, you’ll find a small gateway that leads to a dirt path. Follow that trail to a cluster of benches where you can sit and bask in the sun. Seagrove Park is located off Coast Boulevard. Powerhouse Park is located at 1658 Coast Boulevard, Del Mar, 92014. 858.793.6138.

Perched above Del Mar’s Dog Beach is Scripps Bluff Preserve. Though it’s a relatively steep climb, the view is worth every step. Savor the sunset at this lesser-known preserve. The high vantage point on this bluff gives you a 360-degree of the coastline and the inland lagoons. So, not only can you watch the sun dip down over the Pacific, but you can turn and watch the sky inland change colors, which can be especially spectacular if there happens to be hot air balloons in flight. To access the bluff, use the paid parking at North Beach (aka Dog Beach) along Camino del Mar. Dog Beach is located at 3006 Sandy

Lane Del Mar, CA 92014. As you walk onto North Beach, look for a wooden staircase to your right. Follow the staircase up to a trail that leads you to the top of the bluff.

3

Del Mar Plaza is a European-style marketplace that overlooks the Pacific. Patio areas and benches offer plenty of seats with a view, especially on the upper levels. During the warmer months, check out the free outdoor concerts every Thursday night, and enjoy that sunset with a live soundtrack and maybe a glass of wine. 1555 Camino Del Mar, Del Mar, 92014. delmarplaza.com.
