Del Mar, California is located 20 miles north of San Diego on the beautiful Southern California coast. With the bordering communities of La Jolla to its south and Rancho Santa Fe to its east. Del Mar is a tiny, exclusive enclave of two square miles of coastal land with a population of about 5,000. The main attraction of residents and visitors alike is its beautiful beach and year-round sunny weather. The spectacular Torrey Pines Golf Course, site of the 2021 and 2008 U.S. Open Championship, is just 4 miles to the south.
And of course it is home to the world famous Del Mar Thoroughbred Racetrack - "Where The Turf Meets The Surf" - built in 1937 by luminaries Bing Crosby and actors Pat O'Brien and Jimmy Durante. Visitors come to Del Mar from all over the world during the annual six-week thoroughbred racing meet at the end of each summer. Del Mar, which was the host venue for the 2021 and 2017 Breeders Cup, has been a haven for movie stars and celebrities such as Kevin Costner, Alex Trebek, Bo Derek, Humphrey Bogart, Lucille Ball, W.C. Fields, Ava Gardner, Betty Grable, and Mickey Rooney, all of whom were regulars at the Del Mar Racetrack.
Current or recent residents or home owners include Bill Gates, Jenny Craig, Steve Perry, Drew Brees, Aaron Rogers, Trevor Hoffman, Carson Palmer, Tony Hawk, Steve Mariucci, and Tony Robbins.
