Encinitas Real Estate
Encinitas is the flower of San Diego County, a beautiful coastal city known for its many ornamental flower shops and nurseries - poinsettias, in particular, are a popular export here. Year-round sunny weather, progressive city planning, and a colorful history enabled Encinitas to keep its gardens and pleasant small-city atmosphere while other nearby communities expanded rapidly throughout the 20th century.
The renowned Ecke poinsettia was introduced here in 1923, and today can be spotted in yards throughout the community. Encinitas is located about 20 miles north of Downtown San Diego, and features six miles of rugged Pacific waterfront complete with beaches and prime surfing spots.
In the early 1980's communities including Olivenhain, Leucadia and Cardiff by the Sea joined together with Old Encinitas to become just "Encinitas". Even with this change, each community has it's own personality and style that make Encinitas one of the most desirable beach locations in San Diego to buy a home.
