WET, WILD AND WONDERFUL
About 25 miles north of San Diego and 95 miles south of Los Angeles, Encinitas—which means “Little Oaks” in Spanish—is a beach city that was incorporated in 1986. It combines several communities including: Old Encinitas, a small-but-historic beachside area along the coast 101 highway; New Encinitas, which features a golf course, shopping centers and larger tract homes; Olivenhain, a semi-rural region with mostly single-family homes, a 4-H club and several private equestrian facilities; Leucadia, a coastal community with beaches, art galleries, shopping and restaurants; and Cardiff-by-the-Sea, which features the Lux Art Institute and the San Elijo campus of Mira Costa College.
Downtown Encinitas is home to many local shops, salons, art galleries and restaurants, as well as the famed Hansens Surf Shop. Opened in 1961, Hansens is the area’s oldest and largest surf shop—with over 20,000 square feet of space.
Encinitas hotels keep visitors close to Hansens and many other local attractions, such as the 37-acre San Diego Botanic Garden, the San Elijo Lagoon Nature Center, the Del Mar Fairgrounds—home to the annual San Diego County Fair, and LEGOLAND California.
