Since its incorporation in 1986, Encinitas has always been regarded as a very desirable place to put down some roots. Encinitas maintains the laid-back surf lifestyle that made it famous in the 60s and 70s, and it’s also home to the communities of Leucadia, Cardiff-by-the-Sea, and Olivenhain, each of which has a unique personality. As North County’s epicenter for quality healthcare, the city has built a strong reputation with Scripps Encinitas Hospital, and people come from miles away to visit some of the best doctors in the nation. The new face of Encinitas is sophisticated and incredibly family-oriented, offering shopping, parks, and a beautiful public library. Additionally, the Self Realization Fellowship Meditation Gardens are internationally renowned for the diversity of their plants and their spectacular ocean vistas.
