Encinitas is located in northern San Diego County along six miles of the Pacific coastline, with a population of close to 65,000 residents. The downtown area has the feel of earlier times, retaining its beachy and artsy vibe, but it also has the bustle and boom of top retail shops, fine dining and cultural events. The natural beauty of the communities, the moderate Mediterranean climate and the many recreational and cultural activities make Encinitas a spectacular and highly desirable place to call home.
