Encinitas Real Estate
Encinitas was named for the oak trees that grew on the local hillsides by the Spanish that were traveling on the El Camino Real. Incorporated in 1986, the city of Encinitas now includes the areas of Cardiff-by-the-Sea, Olivenhain and Luecadia.

Encinitas was founded in 1881 when a gentleman named Jabez Pitcher filed a claim in the area along the railroad near the site of today's Civic Center. The area of Leucadia was founded by a group of Englishmen that settled down just a few miles north of where the railroad was. Cardiff-by-the-Sea was founded in 1875 when a family by the name of McKinnon built a homestead on the northern shore of the San Elijo Lagoon. Each area has its own unique features and characteristics and are all neighborhoods of the City of Encinitas.

Encinitas is famous for its beaches. With six miles total to offer the surfer and sun-worshipper alike; Swami's has the best waves, the "Boneyard" located at 4th and D streets is great for sunbathing "au natural", while Moonlight Beach is a great place for a family beach party or a walk along the water.

At one time, Encinitas was known as the "Flower Capitol of the World." The Ecke family is known for the development of the Poinsettia, which were formally introduced to the market in 1923. Since that date, the Ecke family remains both an innovator in the cultivation of new varieties of Poinsettias, as well as one of the largest suppliers of the traditional holiday season plant. The beautiful Quail Botanical Garden offers one of the largest Bamboo collections in the country. Encinitas has a vibrant downtown business district which features a variety of shops and restaurants which line historic route 101, the main thoroughfare of the city. Inland areas offer several modern shopping choices, several located along El Camino Real.

Encinitas is served by the North County Transit Authority Coaster commuter rail, and is located adjacent to I-5 approximately 22 miles north of downtown San Diego.
