The wide sidewalks along the historic Old Highway U.S. 101 in "downtown" is lined with outdoor restaurants. Tourists and kids are seen walking around downtown barefoot, in swim suits while other are waxing down their surfboards for a session at Moonlight Beach.

Ann Dunham, a native of Michigan, owns this little four-room Bed and Breakfast Inn.  The Inn overlooks the ocean; Moonlight Beach is just two blocks away - no other Inns in coastal San Diego are closer to the ocean.  Moonlight Beach is the most popular beach in Encinitas because it's a great spot to get some warm sun, have a little picnic, get involved in a game of beach volleyball, go surfing, try a boogie-board, body surf in the great waves, just relax and read a book or watch people.
