New Encinitas boasts the small-town charm of other Encinitas communities, but has more of a suburban feel with newer homes, homeowners associations, condominium communities, and large shopping centers.
The eclectic shops of Leucadia, hiking and riding trails of Olivenhain, and the beaches of Old Encinitas and Cardiff-by-the-Sea are just a short drive away, making New Encinitas an attractive choice for families and professionals alike who want to live in a small town near the beach while also having access to city amenities not too far from home.
Encinitas, as a whole, is known for having highly rated schools, great surfing, and lots of fun community events throughout the year. New Encinitas offers the opportunity to enjoy all of this from newer, more uniform neighborhoods just minutes away. Read More...
