Historic Walking Tour

Del Mar has long been known for its beautiful beaches, shopping, and dining, but it’s the history behind its modern day attractions that set the stage for the seaside village’s glamorous existence, dating back to early residents such as Jimmy Durante, Desi and Lucy Arnaz, and Bing Crosby. Enjoy a walk down memory lane with a new, guided walking tour. Plaques have been installed on several historically significant buildings including L’Auberge Del Mar, Stratford Square, Jake’s Del Mar, Del Mar Library, and many more. Scan the plaques’ QR codes for detailed information on the buildings and the colorful past of the residents who developed the seaside neighborhood in the early 1900s. (www.delmarmainstreet.com)
