A Video Tour on the Historic Coast Highway 101 Through Leucadia (Encinitas) California
Leucadia is a funky, laid-back beach town just south of Carlsbad on the North San Diego County coast, and one of my favorite communities.
Leucadia has a long surfing history, and as a seaside community retains much of the feel from days gone by - which most people like about the community.
This town is part of Encinitas but with a different feel and look. You won't find high end shopping here, nor 5 star dining (but check out Le Papagayo and Auggie's House of Crab for great eating and atmosphere), and folks like it that way just fine.

Despite the funkiness, and the presence of tattoo parlors, surf shops, trailer parks, lots of apartments and vacation rentals, Leucadia is not inexpensive, being located along the beach. Many homes and condos are within walking distance to the beach, and while you can buy mobile and manufactured homes for under $100,000, you can easily spend $3 to $8 million for a bluff top/ocean front home just a block or two away.
Enjoy the video tour down the historic Route 1010 coast highway through Leucadia. Unfortunately it was not a bright sunny Southern California day, but you get the idea. If you would like more information about the area, including Leucadia real estate, please let me know.
