Del Mar: Where the Surf meets the Turf

"Where the surf meets the turf in old Del Mar!" These are lyrics from a song written about the Racetrack at Del Mar that Bing Crosby made famous. Del Mar is about twenty minutes north of San Diego and worth a day trip if you like craggy coast lines, posh resorts, designer class shopping or just wandering around beautiful areas.

Del Mar means "of the sea” and this name was given to the tent city established by Theodore Loop in the early 1880s. Del Mar was incorporated as an independent city in 1959. It has a population of about 4,000 and comprises a two square mile strip of the coast. The main attractions in Del Mar are the beach, Del Mar Plaza, the San Diego County Fair and of course, the famous horse races are held at the well-known Del Mar Racetrack. Intro by member lmkluque
