The nonprofit Del Mar Village Association has opened a new visitor center, with information on local hotels, dining, special events and activities in the city.

The Del Mar Community & Visitor Center is located at 1104 Camino Del Mar, Suite 1, across from City Hall. An association statement said the center has walking maps of the village district, along with visitor guides and restaurant menus.

Future plans call for the sale of Del Mar-related gifts, such as holiday ornaments, wine glasses, license plate frames and water bottles. The association is planning a formal grand opening event for Feb. 21.

The center is currently open from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Monday through Friday, with plans for extended hours starting in the spring.
