The Encinitas Preservation Association (EPA) will be hosting two historical bus tours on Saturday, Sept. 28. On each tour attendees will visit and learn about 40 historical points of interest throughout the City of Encinitas. EPA Board Director Carolyn Cope mapped out the tour with Richard Bumann and both found themselves rediscovering the city they have called home their entire lives. Cope stated, “We both have deep roots here and learned even more from each other. Everyone should know about their hometown and this tour is a fantastic way to gain more knowledge about the many historical places in Encinitas.”

Each ticket supports the great cause of preserving The Boathouses. The EPA acquired the iconic SS Moonlight and SS Encinitas in 2008 to keep these buildings public and to be enjoyed by future generations. The EPA Tour sponsor, Sea Coast Exclusive Properties, is a locally owned real estate firm with deep ties and a history of service to the community. “Many of our agents are locals that grew up in Encinitas, with family histories that are a part of the Encinitas story. We are excited to be a small part of preserving our local heritage,” stated Mike Evans, President of Sea Coast Exclusive Properties.

The first tour will be held from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. and the second tour will run from 1 to 4 p.m. The buses will depart from City Hall in Encinitas (505 S Vulcan Ave) and return there at the end of each tour. Ticket pricing is $40 for one ticket or $75 for two tickets. Purchase tickets online ( or in person at Encinitas 101 MainStreet (818 S Coast Hwy 101).
