Encinitas, located in North County San Diego along six miles of Pacific coastline, is one of San Diego's most sought-after beach communities. Combining a classic Southern California beach culture with modern conveniences, Encinitas is a place many San Diegans call home. Encinitas is comprised of five communities that can accommodate any lifestyle. Old Encinitas is a beachside community that includes the famous surf break Swamis (mentioned in the Beach Boys' "Surfin' USA") and historical architecture. New Encinitas features newly developed tract homes, golf courses and shopping centers. Olivenhain, considered eastern Encinitas, contributes a rural flavor to the area with single family homes nestled amongst several private equestrian facilities and direct roads to Rancho Santa Fe. Leucadia is an older community and home to art galleries, family-owned businesses and restaurants, and a number of single family homes. Finally, Cardiff-by-the-Sea is the southernmost oceanfront community and is an educational hub with the Lux Art Institute and Mira Costa College residing there. The mild, year-round Mediterranean climate makes Encinitas an appealing place to live and with 65 percent of the population living in owner-occupied housing units, according to the 2010 census, Encinitas provides an appealing option for new and experienced homeowners, families, and those who seek an active lifestyle in a serene setting.
