We are (possibly) 2 couples looking to visit the ocean for 3 nights in February, driving from Phoenix area. Trying to decide between Encinitas or Oceanside. We are young seniors. We like a funky neighbourhood feel, walking, beach walking, restaurants, cycling, watching surfers, craft beer, markets, maybe some ziplining if it's nearby, and happy to take the train into San Diego if we are bored on one of our days. I'm posting this in Oceanside and Encinitas forums. Would like to hear about the differences in "feelings" between the 2 communities. I am leaning towards Encinitas (and Surfhouse), but the other couple may prefer the "business" of Oceanside. Thanks for insights to come!
