Summer at L'Auberge
When we think summer at L’Auberge Del Mar…one thing in particular comes to mind: the Del Mar Fairgrounds! Just down the road from L’Auberge, guests can walk or take a shuttle to two major events that take place this time of year – The San Diego Fair and Thoroughbred Horse Racing.
The San Diego Fair captivates people with great food, attractions, concerts, exhibits, and much more! What is better than the aroma of corn on the barbeque, funnel cakes, and deep-fried twinkies? Open June 8th – July 4th, this is the perfect daytrip destination that will easily keep you and the whole family occupied with all there is to see and do. And when the fair ends, Del Mar Horse Racing season gears up! Known for its famous slogan, “Where the Turf Meets the Surf”, The Del Mar Thoroughbred Club draws in people from all over for its season of horse racing. Opening Day, July 18th is one of the biggest events in Del Mar, with the most exclusive after-party taking place right here at L’Auberge! Track season runs from July 18th- September 5th.
Summertime is all about good weather and outdoor activities, thus the ideal “getaway” location - The Beach! Making our coastal home by the sea the perfect destination to beat summer boredom. With our private footpath to the water, guests can enjoy sunbathing on the sand, catching a wave surfing, or observing Pacific Ocean sea life the while SUP Boarding. New to these sports? No worries, L’Auberge has partnered with Del Mar’s Fulcrum Surf School so guests can acquire professional lessons and be paddling out with the dolphins in no time! Don’t feel like surfing or SUPing? Maybe an evening concert at Powerhouse Park, just steps from the hotel, is more your style. Summer Twilight Concerts provide guests and locals alike with a relaxing night of music and ocean views; just bring a blanket to sit on!
And of course right across the street from L’Auberge is the beautiful Village of Del Mar. A walk around the shops, galleries, and restaurants will surely blow your mind with what this boutique town has to offer. No need for your car, as everything is located conveniently within walking distance. Summer boredom you say? Not at L’Auberge Del Mar!
