Los Angeles to Encinitas

by sunsurya

hi! this is my first post ever (here). i need to get from l.a. to encinitas. my plan (so far) is to take the amtrak from union station in l.a. to oceanside where i will take the coaster to encinitas. my questions:
1. how far is amtrak station in oceanside from the coaster station - or are they in the same train station? if they arent, what is the best way to get to the other?
2. does anyone have other suggestions to get from l.a. to encinitas?
3. accomodation - any suggestions - i need to stay near West E Street. what is a reasonable price and internet broadband connection would be a dream...
many thx, surya

Other than renting a car and driving to Encinitas, your best bet would be Amtrak. Have you thought about taking Amtrak to Solana Beach (just south of Encinitas) and taking a taxi (or bus) to your lodging? The website is

In Oceanside, Amtrak and the Coaster share the same terminal, so you'd get off Amtrak and hop on the Coaster (

Travel Tips for Encinitas

Encinitas Meditation Gardens- A sight to see!

by Lostfiniel

Here is a find for people with some peace and quiet in mind. The meditation garden in Encinitas are a part of the Self-realization temple and Hermatige founded by Paramahansa Yogananda in 1937. And while the gardens do provide an excellent place for meditating or studying the plants one does need to be religious or a plant-lover to enjoy it. Not terribly large the gardens are full of rich colors and pleasing sights. The gardens include a couple koi pounds with waterfall, resting spots for reading, meditating or just enjoy the view, and a stunning view of the pacific ocean. Talking a walk through them is a great experience and once you get toward the top of the gardens you can watch the surfers below at Swami's beach. After going through the gardens you can also visit the Hermatige and the Bookstore should you wish. Both are close and worth a look if you are interested.

I would not suggest this spot for large groups or groups with children. This is really a spot more enjoyed by one or two people out for a nice walk. Make sure you take your camera!

Garden hours are-
Tuesday-Saturday: 9am-5pm
Sundays: 11am-5pm

Along the 101 California

by ranger49


The sprawling community of Encintas lies between Carlsbad and Solana Beach, about 20 minutes north of San Diego. It offers a contrast between the older settled "village" that grew up close to the coast and along the the 101 and the more recent inland development of New Encinitas a prosperous area with "gated communities" climbing up the hillside to cover the rural villages like Olivehain. Here ranch-type Homes, many with 2 acres of grounds, natural swimming pools, house some of the highest income households in California. But even here we noticed several "Bank Owned " and Foreclosure Sales signs - a grim indication of thepost banking crash times.

"A sense of community"

I liked the suburban village feel along main road.

It is a busy place with lots of shops, eating places and offices. The highway and the railway track run alongside each other carrying commuters on the Coaster and long distance travellers on the Surfliner.

"A place for your pet dogs"

Amongst the hustle and bustle it is quite easy to come across areas of greenery. This small community park, just a short distance from the main road, is a haven for dogs at certain times of the day , when under the superviaion of owners, they take some unleashed exercise.
At the bottom of the hill is the ocean. Not a bad place to live!

Relax. Slow down. You're in Encinitas.

"Things are a bit different here."

If you are from Los Angeles or Orange County, it might take some getting used to the slower pace of Encinitas. It's not that we are slow, it's just we are more relaxed and enjoy the process of what ever we are doing.

Even those from San Diego find Encinitas and North County in general, more laid back. Growth is somewhat slowed by natural barriers such as the lagoons and man-made ones, such as Camp Pendleton. So, those that are fortunate enough to call it home are in no hurry to do anything, except maybe surf.
