New Encinitas Neighborhood Guide

New Encinitas is the newer, trendier, more suburban section of Encinitas. It features housing developments with large homes – many with four or five bedrooms –  and upscale condominiums. Broad, well-designed streets and well-tended lawns characterize this community. Schools in Encinitas are excellent, and many families with children choose to settle here. For recreation there are a number of parks with athletic fields and barbeque areas. If you like to golf, the Encinitas Ranch Golf Course is close by, just on the border with Old Encinitas.

The main streets in this neighborhood are El Camino Real and Encinitas Boulevard. Encinitas Ranch Town Center, at North El Camino Real and Leucadia Boulevard, is the primary shopping center for the area, with a variety of stores nearby. New Encinitas mostly has stores from large companies, such as Target and Home Depot. However, boutique shopping is just a short drive away in Leucadia or Old Encinitas. San Diego is a slightly longer drive south on Interstate 5.

This community is located in the center of Encinitas, with Old Encinitas, Leucadia, and Cardiff-by-the-Sea on the western side, Olivenhain to the east, and La Costa, Carlsbad to the north.
