Del Mar Reviews
Quite and clean, this is a wonderful area with great beaches, nature preserves, and seasonal festivals. With the Del Mar racetrack in swing there is always things to do around town. Great food and fair for everyone!
Del Mar is the town of my dreams. Since I was younger and my parents would take me to the Del Mar fair each summer, I always told them that one day I would live there. Forward 20 years and my husband and I moved there with our kids and felt I was living in Utopia for 5 years until we had to move back to Laguna to help with my mom. Waking up each day to walk along the beach and go have breakfast at one of the charming restaurants in town was always a highlight. We know we will be back to live out our coastal fantasies in Del Mar again soon.
The beaches are beautiful. The area as a whole is beautiful, the schools are very advanced, and it is a very safe neighborhood. However, there are plenty of people who believe that they are superior to others just because of the amount of money that they have or the place that they live. It is easy to feel discouraged by the competition among the students at the local schools.
