Surf, Relax, and Enjoy Coastal Bliss

Pacific Highlands Ranch Lifestyle

Life is better at the beach! For those that can afford it, the ability to live the quintessential Southern California beach lifestyle is one of the many things that draws people to Del Mar. You can wake up, catch a few waves, shower, and be out the door for work. In the evening, a stroll through the Del Mar village or along the sand is the perfect way to unwind.

Although life in Del Mar is generally laid back and peaceful, there’s still plenty to see and do all year long. The county’s biggest attractions all land at the nearby racetrack including the annual San Diego Fair. The Del Mar Thoroughbred Club meets twice a year, in the summer and the fall, at the place where the “turf meets the surf.” In addition, numerous fairs, festivals, and sporting events visit the track facility as well. The Del Mar Village also hosts several iconic events including the Powerhouse Park Summer Concert series, the Del Mar Summer Solstice event, the Taste of Del Mar, and an array of holiday celebrations.

Love to get outside? The iconic Torrey Pines State Reserve offers challenging trails and beautiful views of the rugged San Diego coast, not to mention the rare Torrey Pine. People also love to bike through Del Mar and head up the coast along the picturesque Highway 101. Of course, many Del Mar residents spend nearly every weekend at the beach surfing, swimming, boogie boarding, and more!
