Del Mar is an oasis with a unique "village" atmosphere, where small streets wind up and down the coastal hills and most homes have ocean views or are just a short walk to the best beaches in San Diego County. Real estate options consist of coastal cottages, beachfront estates, condominiums and townhouses, and luxury homes. This upscale community is located on the ocean just a half-hour drive up Interstate 5 from Downtown San Diego. About 4,600 Del Mar residents enjoy the amenities of a small-town without forfeiting any of the big-city opportunities.
San Diego's Gaslamp District, Convention Center, Petco Park, San Diego Zoo, SeaWorld, Old Globe Theatre and the Symphony are all situated around San Diego Harbor and Mission Bay. Since the 1920s, when film stars made Del Mar a playtime destination, it has grown into one of the most beautiful resort communities on the West Coast.
Del Mar is in the heart of "golfers paradise;" however, the community also encompasses expansive beaches, the Del Mar Race Track and Fair Grounds, art festivals, hot air ballooning and ocean view dining at great restaurants, along with many cultural offerings. Recreational opportunities abound with beautiful beaches, excellent surfing and swimming, shopping at unique boutiques, or hiking and jogging at the world famous Torrey Pines Preserve. Private and resort golf courses include the Del Mar Country Club, Rancho Santa Fe Golf Club, Fairbanks Ranch Country Club, The Bridges Golf & Country Club and The La Costa Golf and Tennis Resort.
