Southern California Tour: Encinitas / Cardiff-by-the-Sea
A beautiful and grown neighborhood is awaiting you here. One of the old surfing villages without upscale flair - just relaxing.
If visiting during fall and winter be prepared to encounter a loud, crashing surf. Living in a house located at the steep coast means that you hear the surf such loud that you think a freight train is running through your quarters. Surfers love the 'pipes' and even if you don't dare to try it, just watch it - it's fabulous!
Encinitas means real Laid-Back Flair. Enjoy staying here, having breakfast in the few cafes and have fun at the beach. Even in summer there's enough room for everybody at the beaches.
Encinitas is also a pet friendly town. There's a Dog Beach, where you can bring your 4-legged friend. In summer they have to be leashed, in winter they may run free.
Dog Beach is a real clean beach, dog owners take their duties serious.
By the way it's an ideal place to walk your dog in the morning when really nobody is here who could be considered disturbing. Only other 4-feeters.
Here comes our tip regarding dining and also lunch:
Stop by at Rosanna's, directly located at Main Street and 'G' Street. Rosanna and husband Jean-Louis started their first Deli here many years ago and meanwhile they serve lunch and dinner. It's exceptional good, really hard to beat. And extremely authentic Italian...and we know what we're talking about ... having lived in Italy.
Don't miss it and be ready to experience real Italian food and dishes.
