Recently named among the 20 best surf towns in the world by National Geographic, Encinitas wears its surf history proudly.

Located along six miles of Pacific Ocean coastline, Encinitas is an unspoiled reminder of the historic Highway 101 beach culture that thrived in the mid-1900s. The city's eclectic downtown has long drawn surfers and hippies with its unique and dynamic blend of San Diego’s top surf shops, coffee houses and record stores, not to mention the beaches in Encinitas are coveted by locals as hidden gems. Encinitas is alternately known as the "Flower Capital of the World," because of its extensive collection of unique nurseries and gardens, most extensive of which is the San Diego Botanic Garden, and the world's leading grower of the Christmas flower, the poinsettia.
