Greetings and thank you for your time and expertise...
We've never been to CA, traveling from the East Coast. We have a son who plans to attend MiraCosta. We've heard (read) some pretty cool reviews of the Encinitas area, (chill, artsy, surfer vibe), here on TripAdvisor.
We were wondering if Encinitas is a good choice to look for housing for our son, while he attends MiraCosta? He's an avid surfer, and a pretty chilled out kid. Encinitas sounds like it's a good fit for him.
Oceanside is a bit sketchy in some areas at night as we were told by a friend who lived in the area(?) So we're hoping to find an alternative. We will be in the area for a few days, in about two weeks, and hoping to scout out and possibly secure housing.
If Encinitas is not a good fit... any other suggestions, info?
Thank you for the kindness of your time and knowledge.
