Located along the northern pacific coastline lies the beautiful city of Encinitas, which has brought together communities like New & Old Encinitas, Cardiff by the Sea, Olivenhain, and Leucadia.
Housing prices over the past several years have soared in these areas with the desirability of location, lifestyle opportunities, and proximate it is to downtown SD and Orange County. Although it has traditionally been known for its hippie vibes, you will be amazed at the cultural diversity that it has evolved over the years.
With its magnificent beaches, that surfers gather from all over the world for tournaments, to the famous botanical gardens that offers an amazon rainforest as well as the largest display of bamboo in the world to the notable downtown that is lined with sidewalk cafes, upscale dining, yoga studios and boutiques, you’ll find a place that offers something for everyone. And not to mention Encinitas Ranch Golf Course with panoramic ocean views and the gardens of the self-realization center that offers tranquility. Encinitas is the perfect place to work, live, visit and raise a family. Contact realtors in san diego, ca to see what homes are on the market.
Co-founder and CEO of Avenue3 Realty, Angelina Scafani-Sciarrino, put down her roots in Encinitas years ago, when she found it an ideal community to raise her son. On the weekends you can find her and her family bicycling along Hwy 101, breaking for brunch at The Roxy, or for a quick refreshment at Modern Times. During the week, you can find her in the evenings taking a stroll along Moonlight Beach or stopping into her new favorite restaurant Herb & Sea (that has a Linguini & Crab Pasta dish on the menu that is an absolute must try). Some of her other favorite go-to spots that she recommends you try include 3rd Corner for the best wine shop, Lofty Coffee for the most delicious coffee, and Cali Cream for your year-round ice cream fix (Their new Bourbon Pecan is to die for!)
Plan a day, spend some time in sunny Encinitas, attend one of their many events such as Music by the Sea on Wednesdays, the return of Oktoberfest in early October, or the Holiday Street Fair and Turkey Trot both taking place in late November. With all the happenings in the community, you’ll have a hard time ever wanting to leave!
