Sitting on six miles of coastline, Encinitas is known for surfing, flower growing and a wonderful downtown area filled with restaurants and shops called “Old Encinitas.” It is in Old Encinitas that you will see the iconic “Encinitas” sign over the historic Coast Highway 101.  And if you time it right, you can enjoy the classic car display when car collectors get together and park on the 101 to show off their vintage cars. The newer part of Encinitas is filled with shopping, golf courses and communities of all styles while Old Encinitas enjoys a wonderful mix of older homes mixed with businesses.  If you are a surfer, there are many surf contests throughout the year with Moonlight Beach being the hub for surfers and swimmers.
