We already know we’re pretty spoiled when it comes to the weather in Encinitas. So even though the first “official” day of spring was March 20th, some may say it feels like spring year-round. And lately, it’s been feeling a lot more like summer with this beautiful, warm weather. At least Spring gives us another reason (not that we needed one) to get out and enjoy some fresh air in our beautiful city! Check out some of the fun events taking place in Encinitas, Leucadia, and Cardiff during the next couple of months before the busy summer begins.
