Encinitas San Diego Movers

Encinitas is a beach city in the North County area of San Diego County, California. Located within Southern California, it is approximately 25 miles north of San Diego and about 95 miles south of Los Angeles. Encinitas is a Spanish name meaning “little oaks”. The city was incorporated by 69.3% of the voters in 1986 from the communities of historic Encinitas, new Encinitas (Village Park, etc.), Leucadia, Cardiff-by-the-Sea, and Olivenhain. The communities retain their identities and distinctive flavors.

The Lux Art Institute and San Dieguito Heritage Museum are located in Encinitas. Other points of interest include the San Diego Botanic Garden, Self-Realization Fellowship temple and Hermitage, as well as the gardens which are routinely open to the public, the historic La Paloma Theater, Moonlight Beach, and one of California’s classic downtown areas along historic Coast Highway 101. Surfing is a popular activity in Encinitas, particularly at Swami’s, which is rated in the top 5 surf locations in the world, and is mentioned in a verse of The Beach Boys’ song “Surfin’ U.S.A.”

The Magic Carpet Ride, or more affectionately known by Encinitas locals as the Cardiff Kook, is a 16 ft bronze statue located in Cardiff-by-the-Sea, in the city of Encinitas. The San Diego Architectural Foundation, in its annual “Orchids & Onions” awards for the best and worst architecture of the year, awarded the Kook an Onion in 2007. The nickname comes from a derogatory surfer slang term for a “wannabe” surfer, as surfers in the area realized that the statue’s form whilst “surfing” was far from correct. However, the Kook has become a local favorite in the city and has many wonderful traditions associated with it. At various times during the year, the Kook is “vandalized” and dressed up (wearing a lucha libre mask, being eaten by a paper-mache shark, wearing a full Uncle Sam costume for Independence Day, used by local high school students to ask each other to school dances) bringing local flair and tourists constantly to the statue.

Since 1982, the Encinitas 101 Main Street Association has helped keep downtown Encinitas economically viable yet historic & beachy. Downtown Encinitas is vibrant and full of thriving local salons, restaurants, shops, bars, and art galleries. Downtown Encinitas is home to Hansens Surf Shop – San Diego’s oldest and largest shop. It opened in 1961 and occupies over 20,000 square feet of retail space. Encinitas station provides rail service to the city, and is also home to a local Farmer’s Market. Coaster trains stop here multiple times a day, 7 days a week with service from Oceanside to San Diego. Between 2013 and 2017, Amtrak’s Pacific Surfliner also stopped here, but discontinued this stop due to low ridership
