Driving from San Diego north to Oceanside to my first large VT-meeting Linda (lmkluque) decided to show me Del Mar - and it was the best choice! Del Mar looks very, very beautiful - a must see in Southern California!
The City of Del Mar is two square miles of coastal land with a population of about 5000. The main attraction of visitors is still the beach and sunny weather.
Of course, the annual Del Mar Fair and the well-known Del Mar Racetrack bring in people from the surrounding area and beyond.
But I discovered one more "attraction" there: local city law hehe. It inspired me to ask a question in the VT Travel Forum:
Hehe, don't waste your time (192 replies) although you can find there some brilliant examples of REAL funny law like for example:
In California, animals are banned from mating publicly within 1,500 feet of a tavern, school, or place of worship.
In Denver it is unlawful to lend your vacuum cleaner to your next-door neighbor.
In Switzerland it is illegal to flush the toilet after 10 P.M. if you live in an apartment.
Take it easy, keep smiling and... go to discover how it works in Del Mar :-)).
Del Mar Beach Cam:
And what? Do you like there? :-)))
- Pros:Beautiful location, beach, recreational areas, racetrack.
- Cons:A lot of bans (by local law) + much $$$ needed there (for longer stay!)
- In a nutshell:A must see Pacific resort!
Driving around Del Mar I noticed maybe not very many but quite many luxury vehicles: convertibles among them. No wonder,... more travel advice
It seems that there is not enough parking lots in Del Mar. We had a problem to park a car close to the beach on Saturday... more travel advice
