Local Haps and Events

Goodguys Meguiar’s Del Mar Nationals Car Show celebrates another year at the Del Mar Fairgrounds. April is a great time of year in San Diego, as the temps warm up. The show is only a quarter mile to the beach, so the ocean breeze sweeps through. The Fairgrounds holds many events throughout the year, including the San Diego County Fair and Del Mar Races. About half a mile up the road, Del Mar Village has many restaurants and outside cafes which offer tasty food, as well as specialty shops and boutiques. And don’t forget the beach, just steps from downtown.
