Encinitas is a coastal city in California, located about 25 miles north of San Diego. With 6 miles of shoreline at your disposal, Encinitas hotels are a great place for visitors to stay when they want to get away from the hustle and bustle of the big city and relax on some of the region's most beautiful beaches.
Touch down at San Diego International Airport and catch bus No. 992 outside of terminals 1 or 2. Take it about 15 minutes to the intersection of Broadway and Kettner and switch to the Coaster commuter train. Ride for four stops and get off in Encinitas, where you can pick up one of the Encinitas car rentals to get around locally. Alternatively, you can catch the dedicated shuttle at the airport to the rental car center and pick up a vehicle there.
Once you arrive, check into your choice of Encinitas motels and stop by the San Diego Botanic Garden, where you can see one of the largest bamboo groves in the United States, among other verdant displays. Surfers take note: The waves here are unbeatable, so don't miss an afternoon on Moonlight Beach or Swami's Reef. The San Elijo Lagoon Reserve, a beautiful coastal wetland, is another awesome stop for outdoor enthusiasts. When you've tired yourself out, head over to Downtown 101, the city's downtown district, which features plenty of opportunities for shopping, dining, and entertainment.
