Forbes has named Encinitas one of it's Best Places To Travel In 2023.
Fox 5 San Diego says Forbes praised the beaches, restaurants and shops in Encinitas.
The Forbes article states, “California summons thoughts of a sun-swathed swell and palm-flecked streets thronged by cool cafes and beautiful boutiques — and that’s exactly what you’ll find in Encinitas, a surfer’s haven just about 25 miles north of San Diego.”
“Grandview Beach is favored by board-toting wave hunters, while sunset seekers call Moonlight Beach home come dusk — neither of these sandy stretches, however, are spoiled by the crowds of California’s big city beaches,” the Forbes article noted.
The magazine complimented Encinitas for its dining options, particularly applauding Herb & Sea and the Fish Shop, describing Encinitas as a "sophisticated seafood sanctuary".
While highlighting Encinitas, Forbes also noted the “heap of hotels” for visitors who want to pay in travel perks like Hilton Honors points, Wyndam rewards or points earned at Hyatt hotels.
"We are thrilled to be included in Forbes ‘Best Places to Travel in 2023.’ We always knew our seaside gem was special — where better to sip, shop, surf, sun, stay, play and feed your soul than in Encinitas", said Carol Knight, Encinitas Chamber of Commerce and Visitors Center Director, “With our unique neighborhoods, laid-back vibe and jaw-droppingly beautiful and swimmable beaches, Encinitas captures the true essence of a Southern California vacation".
