In 1885, Colonel Jacob Taylor purchased this area with plans to turn it into an upscale coastal resort town. He made this dream a reality when he opened the town’s first resort, Casa Del Mar, in 1886. The plans for this resort followed the expansion of the railroad line that connected Los Angeles and San Diego, a development that made the area far more accessible and put the town of Del Mar on the map. During World War II, Del Mar was the site of a Naval Auxiliary Air Facility, a base of operations for the United States Navy that focused on the maintenance of blimps. Since then, this area has been primarily residential, with a focus on family friendly activities and upscale, beachfront living.
Today, this affluent community has a median household income of around $170,000. The town covers an area of 1.8 square miles and is home to just over 4,000 people. The children of Del Mar attend one of the eight K-8 schools in the Del Mar Union School District. They will then go on to attend high school in the San Dieguito Union High School District.
