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 20,00 square feet of retail space.
Encinitas can be divided into five areas:
Old Encinitas: a small beachside area featuring a mix of businesses and housing styles. The Encinitas welcome arch is located here. Old Encinitas is split from New Encinitas by a low coastal ridge.
New Encinitas: a newer region which features golf courses, many shopping centers, and composed of larger tract homes.
Olivenhain: a semi-rural region in eastern Encinitas, composed of mostly single family homes and an active 4-H Club.
Leucadia: an older community of the city. Leucadia features tree lined streets and boulevards. The community features art galleries, unusual stores, and restaurants, along with single family homes.
Cardiff-by-the-Sea: Encinitas’ southernmost oceanfront community, which features streets named after British cities and classical composers, the Lux Art Institute, famous surf break Swamis and the San Elijo Campus of Mira Costa College.
