The Village of Del Mar recently announced the opening of the new Del Mar Community & Visitor Center in the heart of Del Mar. The office will serve as a welcome center for visitors and locals.
Located at 1104 Camino Del Mar, Suite 1 across from City Hall, the Visitor Center is open during the winter from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., Monday through Friday, and will have extended hours starting in the spring.
Fulfilling a need for locals and visitors, the new center, staffed by the Del Mar Village Association, will provide information on hotels, dining, special events, and activities in Del Mar. On display will be Village walking maps, visitors guides, restaurant menus, and downtown community and special events information.
“We’re happy to have a visible location in the heart of Del Mar that will not only serve as an information gathering place for locals but will assist visitors as they explore our Village,” said Mathew Bergman, president of the Del Mar Village Association.
In the future, the DMVA plans to sell Del Mar gifts such as holiday ornaments, wine glasses, license plate frames, water bottles, signature Del Mar surf wax among other unique items.
The Del Mar Village Association is planning a grand opening celebration on Feb. 21, from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. with wine and tapas, and welcomes locals too attend. Residents interested in volunteering at the new center should call (858) 735-3650 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
