Del Mar is one of San Diego’s most popular tourist destinations. Exclusive, chic, and beautiful, it’s no wonder it’s also one of the most desirable places to live in San Diego. The village of Del Mar is full of boutique shopping and upscale, local restaurants. The surfing is great and the beaches beautiful. There is also a “dog beach” in Del Mar…one of the few beaches in San Diego that allows pooches year round. Del Mar is located conveniently close to the 5 freeway as well as the famous Del Mar Racetrack and fairgrounds.
