Del Mar is a beach city in San Diego County, California. Del Mar is Spanish for "of the sea" or "by the sea," which reflects its location on the coast of the Pacific Ocean. The Del Mar Horse Races are hosted on the Del Mar racetrack every summer. In 1885, Colonel Jacob Taylor purchased 338 acres (1.37 km2) from Enoch Talbert, with visions of building a seaside resort for the rich and famous.[6] The United States Navy operated a Naval Auxiliary Air Facility for blimps at Del Mar during World War II.[7] The population was estimated at 4,311 in 2014, up from 4,161 at the 2010 census.[8]

Del Mar is served by the Del Mar Union School District, which includes eight K-8 schools. High school education is provided by the San Dieguito Union High School District.


In terms of public transit, North County Transit District provides their BREEZE bus service across the city limits to many destinations but there is no commuter rail stations in the city anymore. The historic Del Mar station once served passengers on the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway Surf Line and the Amtrak San Diegan intercity service between the early 1900s until its inevitable closure in 1995, due to the opening of the new Solana Beach station two miles north. The aforementioned station provides Coaster commuter rail and Amtrak's Pacific Surfliner service, but heavy congestion at the station during races and the San Diego County Fair have persuaded the City of Del Mar and LOSSAN to build a "special events" platform near the fairgrounds. If this new platform were to be built, the City of Del Mar would (albeit for a short time) still be provided commuter rail service as before back when the historic Del Mar station was built.
