Just returned from the 2009 San Diego County Fair. One of the attractions is the Alvarado House. This structure has been moved from its place of origin in Del Mar to the fair grounds. I volunteered as a docent for this afternoon. Was able to meet many people from all over the USA. Coming up on the wooden porch, you take step back in history to see this wonderful house furnished as it would have been, when built, in 1880. The charm of the meticulous efforts to display period objects is enhanced with photos of Bing Crosby, Jimmy Durante, Marilyn Monroe, Luci and Desi . Many Hollywood stars frequented attractions in Del Mar including the race track and our lovely beach. The Del Mar Historical Society is actively pursuing relocating the Alvarado House to a location on Camino Del Mar. This would allow visitors to enjoy the Alvarado House all year long, not just during the Fair.

The 2009 San Diego County Fair runs through the 5th of July.
Also worthy of mention are the 3 new outdoor cafes on 15th Street in downtown Del Mar. On the corner of 15th and Camino Del Mar, just across the street from the newly renovated L’Auberge Hotel & Spa, is the Americana Cafe’. Going west on 15th Street, Jimmy O.s, Sbicca and Del Mar Pizza are featuring casual outside dining. What a joy it is to have such great choices in Del Mar. These well established eating venues, with their added “fresh Sea Air with food” are just a few of many outstanding restaurants we are blessed with here in Del Mar. En Fuego Cantina & Grill and Crepes & Corks Cafe’ both on Camino del Mar are approved for outside seating and are open now with all their great offerings. Yum. What a great place to live !! And eat!!!
