MI-BOX Moving Guide to Encinitas, California​

Moving to Encinitas, California​

Located north of San Diego in Southern California, Encinitas is on a rugged coastal terrace along the Pacific Ocean. The city is separated into New Encinitas and Old Encinitas by a low-lying coastal ridge. On the north side of the city, Encinitas rises to striking coastal bluffs. Also, to the north is the Batiquitos Lagoon. To the south, there’s the beautiful San Elijo Lagoon.

Encinitas has a reputation that ping-pongs back and forth between a sleepy seaside community and one that’s vibrant and artsy. Anyone packing up a storage container and moving here will find that the truth lies somewhere in-between. While there’s certainly a laid-back, chill vibe to Encinitas, there’s also an active, wildly artistic, wonderfully engaged community.

Surf Culture in Encinitas​

The charming, beachy city of Encinitas is defined by its coastal cliffs and relationship with the Pacific. There is a huge surfing community of locals who can walk out their front doors and easily walk to the beach every morning.

Swami’s, an Encinitas beach, is rated as one of the top five surf locations in the world, and is mentioned in a verse of The Beach Boys’ song, Surfin’ U.S.A. There are also countless surf shops in Encinitas. One of the most notable Encinitas landmarks is The Magic Carpet Ride, known by locals as the Cardiff Kook. It’s a 16-foot bronze statue of a surfer, and the nickname is a derogatory term for wannabe surfers because the surfing form of the statue is so bad. The Kook is beloved by the community, who dress it up for holidays and more.

In 2011, a mosaic of a surfing Virgin de Guadalupe was illegally installed on the north concrete support wall of the train bridge on Encinitas Boulevard, called The Surfing Madonna. Locals fought hard to keep the public art even though it was illegally installed.

Food and Dining in Encinitas​

The coastal locale of Encinitas makes it one of the great seafood destinations along the SoCal coastline. Everything from seaside surf shacks to high-end seafood restaurants are available, serving up amazing dishes that are inspired by the rich diversity of the state. Of course, you’ll need to look along the coastline for hidden gems!

Aside from seafood, Encinitas has a rich cuisine scene, complete with Mediterranean spots, classic burger joints, Caribbean restaurants and steakhouses, among others.

Encinitas Weather​

Encinitas is a great example of why so many people want to move to Southern California. Along with its sunny ocean views, beachy town center and incredible surfing, Encinitas’ location on the coast of the Pacific brings a tempering influence to its climate. The weather is exactly what you think of for Southern California, with average high temperatures in the upper 70s in the summer and the mid-60s in the winter, and the average low temperature never falling below the mid-60s in the summer and the mid-40s in the winter.

Things To Do in Encinitas

Encinitas is full of cultural opportunities beyond surfing and hiking. The Lux Art Institute, San Diego Botanic Garden, San Dieguito Heritage Museum and Encinitas Historical Society are all located in Encinitas. Charming downtown Encinitas is a classic California beach town that hosts many regular events throughout the year. Visit the historic La Paloma Theater, a Spanish Colonial Revival-style movie theater for a show.

Throughout the year, Encinitas plays host to dozens of special events—most of which are open to the public and a wonderful experience to attend! In April, there’s a two-day street fair that takes over downtown Encinitas. Then, in May, the Deep Pit BBQ festival is held at San Dieguito Heritage Museum. Later in the year, in November, a full-day fall festival takes over downtown Encinitas. And, of course, there’s an Oktoberfest celebration just one month earlier, in October.

Encinitas​ Demographics

If you’re looking at these figures with wide eyes, you’re not alone! Encinitas has exploded in popularity over the last decade, with both incomes and property values growing by 8% and 5%, respectively. People are flocking to this area to settle down in a place that’s reminiscent of paradise.

Schools in Encinitas​

If you’re moving to Encinitas with school-aged children, the first thing you’ll want to know about are the schools. Encinitas is served by three different school districts: the Cardiff School District, Encinitas Union School District and the San Dieguito Union High School District.

Cardiff School District consists of just two elementary schools: the kindergarten through third grade Cardiff Elementary and third through sixth grade Ada Harris Elementary. Encinitas Union consists of nine elementary schools, while San Dieguito Union High School District is a much larger school district, which serves students in South Carlsbad, Rancho Santa Fe, Del Mar, Fairbanks Ranch, Solana Beach and Carmel Valley in San Diego County, along with Encinitas.
