3 Ways to Soak Up the Summer Sun at Del Mar Plaza

Summer in Del Mar is a magical time. Our moderate temperatures make playing in the sun all the more fun. While most crowds head to the beach when the temperatures rise—and to be honest, we don’t blame them—those looking for a little more sophisticated soak in the sun know to come to Del Mar Plaza. Here are just three ways to take advantage of the beautiful, cloudless skies and perfect weather at the Plaza.

1) Lil Tritons Club

The Lil Tritons Club is the hippest musical event for kids—and it takes place on Del Mar Plaza’s Ocean View Deck, which is always showered with ample sunshine. Kids are treated to a show by the Hullabaloo folk-music duo every third Wednesday of the month and also receive a coloring page and crayons. Immediately following the concert, kids eat free at Il Fornaio and Pacifica Del Mar, which both have outdoor seating spaces to enjoy even more time in the sun.

2) Seaside Sessions

The Ocean View Deck is also the scene for the Plaza’s Seaside Sessions. On Thursday and Saturday evenings through September, you can check out our rotating lineup of local artists. The concert series is a great opportunity to dine al fresco at one of our award-winning restaurants while soaking up the last bit of the day’s sun.

3) Brunch at Pacifica

For those people who enjoy the morning sun (and cooler temperatures), Pacifica Breeze Café has a welcoming patio. The restaurant serves up breakfast favorites like eggs benedict, shrimp and grits, French toast, acai bowls, and avocado toast. After 11:30 a.m., they also start serving lunch items, so no matter what time of the day you decide to stop by, you can enjoy some amazing food and abundant sunshine.
