Welcome to Del 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, president and general manager, Del Mar Times

The saying goes “When in Rome, do as the Romans do”— so in this case, when in Del Mar, do as the “Del Marians do.” 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 dog-lovers 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 located at 3006 Sandy Lane, Del Mar, 92014. For more information, go to www.visitdelmarvillage.com or call 858.735.3650.

2

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. Visit dmtc.com or call 858.755.1141 or 858.792.4242.

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. Photos courtesy of SDRVC

1

The River Path Del Mar travels along the southern shore of the San Dieguito River for three quarters of a mile. The route is flat, making it great for a leisurely stroll. Hikers get an up-close look at the San Dieguito Lagoon, the river and estuary with interpretive signs about the wetland’s plants and animals. Parking for the River Path is located at the northeastern corner of Jimmy Durante Blvd. and San Dieguito Drive. Hikers can choose to walk eastward to the Grand Ave. Overlook or westward toward the ocean, ending at the train tracks. Plan to enjoy a delicious meal and beverages at the Viewpoint Brewing Co. located directly adjacent to the River Path. For more information about the River Path Del Mar, visit www.sdrvc.org.

Located just north of the River Path Del Mar, across the Jimmy Durante Bridge, the Coast to Crest Trail at the San Dieguito Lagoon provides visitors with unique vantage points and the closest access to the very sensitive marsh areas of the Lagoon, the gateway to the San Dieguito River Valley. The lagoon has vital ecological importance for the region as a stopover for birds on the Pacific Flyway and as a nesting and foraging area for endangered, threatened and sensitive animal and plant species. This trail is a favorite destination for nature lovers, especially birders who frequently take photos of the osprey, heron and egret nests location just a few feet from the trail. The 600-foot San Dieguito Lagoon Boardwalk can be accessed via the River Path or Coast to Crest Trail. Built by volunteers, the boardwalk extends into the wetlands, offering up-close opportunities for nature study and reflection. For more information about the Coast to Crest Trail at the San Dieguito Lagoon, visit www.sdrp.org.

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

1

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 live music and enjoy that sunset with a glass of wine. 1555 Camino Del Mar, Del Mar, 92014. delmarplaza.com.

Del Mar Plaza is perfect for socializing or quiet enjoyment. John Cunningham photo

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 view 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, 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.

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.

Tony’s Jacal 621 Valley Ave, Solana Beach, CA 92075 858-755-2274 TonysJacal.com It was immediately after World War II in 1946 that Tony and Catalina Gonzales decided to open a restaurant on the present site. Tony had just returned from military service and Catalina, who had contented herself with staying at home while Tony was away, persuaded him to allow her to open a Mexican restaurant right in his parents’ home. Catalina did the cooking and Tony helped serve. Soon the word about their chiles rellenos, turkey tacos and other tasty food spread throughout the area and even as far north as Los Angeles. The restaurant is open every day but Tuesday, except during race season. Traditional Mexican dishes are prepared with mild or hot seasonings to please the
