Encinitas-Pacific Surfliner and COASTER

Encinitas is similar to Sorrento Valley, except it is within close proximity to the town of Encinitas and the beach.  The COASTER stops more at Encinitas than the Pacific Surfliner.  The Pacific Surfliner stops 6 times a day-three times going north and three times going south.

Encinitas is approximately 25 miles north of San Diego in what is referred to as North County and about 95 miles south of Los Angeles.  The largest single industry in the city is the growing of ornamental flowers, particularly poinsettias.  The city was incorporated in 1986 from the communities of historic Encinitas, new Encinitas, Leucadia, Cardiff-by-the Sea and Olivenhain. Old Encinitas is the closest to the train station.  Old Encinitas is a small beachside area with a mix of businesses and housing styles.  The Encinitas welcome arch and famous surf break Swamis and the early 20th century La Paloma Theater are located in Old Encinitas.

Old Encinitas train station, now called Pannikins Coffee and Tea.
