San Diego event calendar: autumn happenings along the coast

Summer may be drawing to a close, but here in San Diego our fun in the sun is just getting started. Thanks to their unique coastal location and year-around sunny weather, San Diego and the surrounding communities like Del Mar, La Jolla, Rancho Santa Fe and Carlsbad are great places to enjoy outdoor activities and events for all seasons. This fall, the San Diego event calendar features everything from live music and cultural performances to exhibitions, parades, food and beer festivals and sporting events. With so much to see and do, it is no wonder that San Diego is a prime destination – not only for vacationers but for full-time residents as well.

Rancho Valencia Resort San Diego: understanding fractional ownership properties

Willis Allen Real Estate | Fractional Ownership Properties

The Rancho Valencia Resort San Diego is currently undergoing extensive renovations and upgrades, with a grand reopening slated for September of this year. The resort is a prime getaway destination for tourists and local residents of Del Mar, Rancho Santa Fe, La Jolla and Carmel Valley alike, and it also presents the potential for fractional ownership. Fractional ownership properties are those within which multiple owners hold percentage shares in exchange for owner access to the property, as well as membership perks. Rancho Valencia is a great example of fractional ownership for San Diego County residents, and one that serves to illustrate the advantages and costs of alternative vacation real estate investments.

Stepping back in time: a history of the San Diego Del Mar Fair

Tammy Tidmore & Kelly Pottorff | Del Mar Real Estate

Summer is in full swing, and that means it is time once again for the San Diego Del Mar Fair. Last year, the Fair celebrated its 75th anniversary; but while thousands of locals religiously flock to the stunning Del Mar fairgrounds every summer, only a handful know the history behind this signature San Diego event. Originally conceived as an agricultural fair in 1880, the gathering evolved over the years until, in 1936, the 22nd District Agricultural Association (DAA) purchased a plot of land at the mouth of the San Dieguito River to create an official county fairground. The rest, as they say, is history – and an enduring for the legacy that still affects the lives of Del Mar natives and visitors alike today.

Del Mar Real Estate | Kelly Pottorff and Tammy Tidmore

Next week, I’ll Have Another will attempt to net the Triple Crown at Belmont Stakes – a feat over 30 years in the making. The excitement surrounding I’ll Have Another’s victories at the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness Stakes earlier this year, combined with the Belmont buzz, is expected to spill over into this year’s Del Mar racing season. According to the Daily Racing Forum, last year’s opening day at Del Mar drew a record-breaking 46,588 spectators: and this year, the July 18 event promises to be even bigger and more exciting than before.
