Del Mar - The Ocean’s City
Del Mar is one of California’s smaller urban gems, with a population hovering above 4,000 people. The city’s name itself is a reference to a once popular poem, The Fight on Paseo Del Mar. Ever since this area was purchased and founded back in 1885, it has aimed to become a beautiful seaside respite. Looking out on the ocean on the west and bordered by the Los Peñasquitos Lagoon on the south, it’s no wonder Del Mar translates to “by the ocean” in Spanish.
If water activities are what you enjoy, you’ll never have to venture far, since over 3% of Del Mar’s area is covered in water. Del Mar is a quintessential example of a beach city with lovely temperate climates, sandy beaches, and surf-worthy waves available twelve months in the year. Those waves also vary enough in height and difficulty to be enjoyable to individuals of all skill levels, so if you want to learn, this is a great place to come! Along with being home to one of few places where good waves can be found all year round, Del Mar is prominently listed in the Beach Boys’ song “Surfin’ the USA” which topped charts in 1963.
However, the Beach Boys were not the first singers who featured Del Mar in their music. Bing Crosby immortalized Del Mar in his song “Where the Turf Meets the Surf” written in the late 1930’s which you can listen to here. Crosby wrote the song to be played at races on the Del Mar Racetrack, which he was one of the main founders of, and personally greeted the first visitors on their way through the gates. In 1938, this racetrack would see one of the most world-renown underdog horse races of all time: Seabiscuit versus Ligaroti. Seabiscuit would famously go on to win this race by only a nose. The track temporarily closed during World War II but was re-opened after victory over Europe. Victory over Japan was announced over speakers to a cheering crowd at the races.
While perhaps one of the more prominent stars, Bing Crosby is not the only star to have enjoyed the “crown jewel of San Diego” and many well-known guests have enjoyed their stays here including Tony Hawks, Marcus Rabwin, Angie Dickenson, Martin Cooper, Carson Palmer, Norv Turner, Zandra Rhodes, and many more!
Del Mar is not limited to marine biology and surfing, however, and is home to some very endangered flora. Perhaps most prominent of which is the Torrey Pine tree, the rarest pine tree in the United States. This tree only grows along specific areas of the coast.
Whether you visit Del Mar to enjoy a race, do some shopping, enjoy some endangered wildlife or a few sunny days out on the beach, you are sure to discover for yourself “there’s a smile on every face/and a winner of each race” at Del Mar!
Serving the people of Del Mar has been a pleasure of ours here at Zerorez.
