Located along six miles of Pacific coastline in northern San Diego County, Encinitas has an approximate population of 60,000 and is characterized by coastal beaches, cliffs, flat-topped coastal areas, steep mesa bluffs and rolling hills. The city was incorporated in 1986, drawing together the communities of New Encinitas, Old Encinitas, Cardiff-by-the-Sea, Olivenhain and Leucadia.
Golf enthusiasts will enjoy the Encinitas Ranch Golf Course, a championship 18 hole par 72 course with panoramic ocean views. Downtown 101 is a coastal shopping district over 100 years old featuring historic architecture, quaint shops, sidewalk cafes, and restaurants framed by beautiful flower baskets. There is a significant flower growing industry in the City and many people claim that Encinitas is the Flower Growing Capital. The surfing in Encinitas is unbeatable and many surf contests are held here throughout the year. The San Elijo Lagoon Reserve is the largest coastal wetland in San Diego County and is home to nearly 300 different bird species throughout the year.
The natural beauty of the Encinitas communities, along with temperatures between 40 and 85 degrees year-round make Encinitas a spectacular place to live.
