Happy New Year Del Mar!

2018 brings a new year with exciting new possibilities and so much to experience and do here in our wonderful community. Our area has amazing weather and many options for every lifestyle.

This month, we spotlight the active lifestyle in our community. I’m excited for this issue because moving here – it was my intention that both my family and I would have a better quality of life based on being active, healthy and on the go.

Of course, the issue would be incomplete without a look at the great surfing and surf culture we have here. We hope you enjoy our feature story highlighting some of our community members.

In addition, one of my favorite hikes in the area is the Coast To Crest Trail. For hiking and biking, this offers a diverse look at Del Mar and San Diego County. Check out this spotlight and let us know if you participate in the challenge!

Our community is also on the forefront of alternative health and wellness strategies. We hope you enjoy our feature on some of the difference makers locally, especially if you are exploring new avenues to self-care in the New Year.

Here’s wishing you and yours a fantastic 2018!
