Leucadia Farmers MarketLeucadia is the quintessential funky Southern California beach town. In fact, as you drive down eucalyptus-lined Coast Highway 101, you might feel you have stepped into a time warp circa 1965 or so.

Actually a City of Encinitas community, Leucadia is located just south of Carlsbad and La Costa Avenue and north of downtown Encinitas. Here, you might notice the absence of fast food restaurants and chain stores. Instead of Starbucks, locals and friends gather at the Pannikin Coffee and Tea house. Dining opportunities are diverse, whether you are seeking aromatic Turkish dishes at the Bird House Grill, homestyle Mexican food and chicken soup at La Especial Norte, or a fusion of Mediterranean and South American cuisine at Le Papagayo. There are numerous other Mom and Pop businesses and restaurants lining this precious strip of Highway 101. And of course, there’s always the Sunday Farmer’s Market!

History of Leucadia

Leucadia was settled by English spiritualists in 1870, which might explain why so many of the streets are named after mythological Greek gods and goddesses. Drive through the lush tree-lined streets in Leucadia and you’ll see Orpheus Street, Hygeia, Vulcan, Neptune, Plato and Jupiter. In fact, Leucadia itself is derived from a Greek word loosely meaning Isle of Paradise or Place of Shelter. Leucadia’s treasured Eucalyptus trees were planted in the 1880’s–and many of them still line Coast Highway 101.

Neighborhoods in Leucadia

Drive through the winding streets of Leucadia, and you are likely to see  vintage cottages and smaller mid-century ranch homes interspersed with newer and very expensive Leucadia real estate. Some are individual remodels, while others are small enclaves of upscale homes. Builders and developers are always eyeing the abandoned greenhouses and flower fields in Leucadia. There’s generally enough land for several homes–or even a small subdivision. Buyers who want to live close to beaches, who don’t want to live in a large planned development and who love the small town feel of this beach town feel right at home in Leucadia.

Schools in Leucadia

Another reason people choose to move to Leucadia is the quality of public education. Elementary students fall under the prized Encinitas Union School District, while older kids attend schools in the San Dieguito High School District which include La Costa Canyon High School, San Dieguito Academy, Canyon Crest Academy, Torrey Pines High School and Sunset High School.
