The Grand Del Mar resort is located in the Los Peñasquitos Canyon Preserve, a secluded spot in the tiny community of Del Mar, just north of San Diego. The address, if you need to GPS it, is 5299 Grand Meadows Del Mar, San Diego, Calif. Surrounded by acres of undulating verdant golf fairways, The Grand Del Mar feels like it's continents away from its convenient location, which is just 25 minutes from the San Diego International Airport and minutes from the coastal communities of La Jolla and Del Mar. The coastline is a five-mile drive (the resort provides round-trip transportation and beach setup). The Del Mar Racetrack is less than files miles from the resort if you want to head to the races. Also nearby are San Diego’s many attractions, including SeaWorld, Balboa Park and its museums, Torrey Pines State Park, the world-famous San Diego Zoo & Wild Animal Park, Legoland, Seaport Village, the Birch Aquarium and the wineries of Temecula. World-class shopping can be found at San Diego’s Fashion Valley Mall and Horton Plaza, and in the upscale boutiques of La Jolla and Del Mar.
