El Camino Real in Encinitas, California - The Shopping Corridor

El Camino Real, the "King's Highway," in a main thoroughfare running from Oceanside south to Cardiff. The road, which roughly parallels the ocean, is a good alternative to commuting on the 5 freeway during rush hour as there is less traffic, although you have to deal with stop lights. 

One of the shoping malls along the El Camino Real shopping corridor in EncinitasEl Camino Real takes you through residential and agricultural areas as well as several significant shopping areas, the best and most diverse being the El Camino Shopping Corridor in Encinitas (from Encinitas Boulevard north to Leucadia Boulevard). 

Folks living in South Carlsbad, West San Marcos, and Encinitas (including Olivenhain), Rancho Santa Fe, and Cardiff have easy access to this several mile stretch of shopping nirvana. You can find an incredible array of retailers, businesses, services and places to dine (fast food to moderately priced eateries, with a broad range of ethnicities, to wine bars), pretty much everything most folks need on a daily basis.

There are all the major grocery chains (Vons, Jimbos, Albertsons, Henry's Farmers Marker, Trader Joes, Stater Bros.), big "package" stores (e,g,. Target, Best Buy, Office Depot, Bed, Bath and Beyond, HomeGoods, TFMaxx, Staples, Home Depot, Ross Dress for Less), a myriad of insurance, escrow, financial, dental, medical, and plastic surgery offices, plus coffee joints, car washing and detailing facilities, furniture stores, auto dealers, and on and on. I have been driving up and down this road for over 4 years and I continue to discover new things hidden in the multiple strip malls that line El Camino Real. 

If having a range of services, shopping and dining near your new home is important, the El Camino Real Shopping Corridor is one area to know about so you can focus your attention on the housing within a reasonable drive (10 to 15 minutes) to the area. 

If I can provide more information about the El Camino Real shopping corridor or the real estate market in the area (Carlsbad, Encinitas, Cardiff, Rancho Santa Fe), please let me know.

Enjoy the video - sorry that the road is a little bumpy
