Los Angeles to Encinitas: Your Ultimate Guide
How to Get From L.A. to Encinitas
While there are several ways to get from The City of Angels to low-key, beachy Encinitas, the quickest and most cost-effective way is to drive. The two cities are only 90 miles apart, which means the drive only takes about an hour and 45 minutes. If you don’t feel like bringing your car, however, taking the train is another convenient option. Amtrak serves the L.A. to Encinitas route every two hours and can get you to your destination in about two hours. Tickets for the train cost anywhere between $30 and $40.
What to Do Once You Arrive
Once you arrive in Encinitas, it’s time to get out and explore! You’ll probably be hungry after your mini road trip. Luckily, there are countless local restaurants worth trying here! Encinitas is all about organic, wellness-centric foods, so we recommend immersing yourself in this lifestyle— even if it’s just for the weekend. After you check into The Inn at Moonlight Beach, walk to OH Juice (five minutes away), Goodonya Organic Eatery (15 minutes away), or Birdseye Kitchen (15 minutes away). Then, to wrap up a relaxing first day away from the hustle and bustle of L.A., attend a zen yoga class or spoil yourself with a luxe massage. Don’t feel like searching for the best services? Try a rejuvenating package offered right here at the inn!
After a soothing first day in Encinitas, you’ll be convinced that there’s just something special about this place. So special, in fact, that you won’t want to go back to L.A.! Retire to your Sublime Suite at the end of each day and feel your stress melt away. Our bright and airy suites can accommodate anywhere between one and six guests, so there’s plenty of room for everyone to stretch out after a day well-spent. You’ll love your eco-memory foam mattress, 5,000-thread count linens, and other premium amenities designed with your wellness in mind (we’re WELL-Certified™ Platinum)!
