About Del Mar
Del Mar is a city in San Diego County, California, United States. The population was 4,389 at the 2000 census. The San Diego County Fair is hosted on the Del Mar Fairgrounds every summer. Del Mar is Spanish for “of the sea” or “by the sea”, because it is located near the Pacific Ocean. Colonel Jacob Taylor purchased 338 acres from Enoch Talbert in 1885, with visions of building a seaside resort for the rich and famous.
Del Mar is truly a gem on San Diego’s north coast. The climate is ideal all year long, with the average temperature hovering between 65 and 78 degrees. The sunniest months are November through March; the warmest months are July through October.
Breathtaking canyons interspersed with hillsides of homes, Del Mar is two square miles of coastal land best known for its fairgrounds and Del Mar Thoroughbred Club “where the surf meets the turf.” A colorful history filled with excitement, pleasure and even a song was created by Bing Crosby and friends such as Jimmy Durante who turned the Del Mar Thoroughbred Club into one of the most beautiful and prestigious organizations in the United States, if not the entire racing world.
If you are looking for a place to stay while visiting the races, try the L’Auberge Del Mar Resort, the Del Mar hotels at bottom of the page, or stay next door at the Solana Beach Courtyard by Marriott. You can take the Amtrak train or Coaster to Solana Beach (the closest stop to the track) and from there, board the free, double decker bus that takes you over to the track. You can miss the bright, red British bus but if you don’t see it, just ask one of the nice people around the station.
Two beautiful beaches, the famous Torrey Pines State Reserve, sunny weather, an annual fair and the famous Del Mar Racetrack attract visitors who come to enjoy sports and recreation near the ocean.

East of Del Mar is the I-5 freeway and a new community, Carmel Valley.
For fans of Carmel-by-the-Sea on the central California coast, this is the warmer, southern version. Art galleries, fantastic ocean views and winding streets supply a feel of an upscale community with character and charm. Seagrove Park, James Scripps Bluffs Preserve, Torrey Pines State Reserve and Beach and nearby Torrey Pines Public Golf Course provide some fantastic outdoor activities and opportunities to enjoy Pacific Ocean views Del Mar is known for.
Del Mar was named in the late 1800’s by Ella Loop. She and husband, Theodore, owned a tent city by the beach which was also called Del Mar, Spanish for “by the sea”. Theodore, worked as a contractor and engineer for the California Southern Railroad which arrived in Del Mar in 1882.
Theodore Loop next formed a partnership with Jacob Taylor to sell 50 x 140 foot lots. Their marketing created some traffic and interest which helped launch South Coast Land Company’s resort with the centerpiece Stratford Inn. Receiving electricity from San Diego Gas and Electric in the late 1920s, residential areas began taking shape and the area experienced its boom. In 1959 Del Mar residents decided to incorporate as a city with a five-member City Council rather than become part of the City of San Diego.
Within the Del Mar city limits, a quaint historical village dating back to the 1800s serves as a backdrop to a small seaside resort first made famous in the 1930s by racehorse aficionados form Hollywood.
Today Carmel Valley is an important part of the greater Del Mar community, which is one of Southern California’s prized destinations. Known nationally for its premier race track and thoroughbred horse meet and gamed throughout California for the “San Diego County Fair,” Del Mar is fast becoming a popular resort destination. It is also a delightful residential community with a long history, which began with the railroad.
According to estimates by the San Diego Association of Governments, the median household income of Del Mar in 2005 was $108,348 (not adjusted for inflation). When adjusted for inflation (1999 dollars; comparable to Census data above), the median household income was $87,982.
