We will be staying in Encinitas in early April and I'm trying to decide whether or not to rent a car for our family. We are a family of five, with three young boys (1 year, 5 and 7). We rented a nice cottage with a yard for hanging out and BBQing, but we will want to explore a little too. I'm wondering if the train is doable with a family of five.
Also, we love the beach, but will the weather be good enough to count on that as a daily activity? We are visiting family, but they will be working during the week. Just wondering if we will have enough to do during that time of year or if we should count on having wheels to search things out. I've been to SD many times, but never stayed in Encinitas before. We have airport transportation covered so that is not an issue.
