ENCINITAS (CBS 8) - Sometimes in life, you just need a little R&R and Encinitas is the perfect place to catch your breath. One mall in Encinitas provides a respite from the routine of life with many shopping and dining options.
The Forum is an outdoor mall that borders Encinitas and Carlsbad. The mall is designed with traditional California-Spanish architecture and features palm trees that are spread throughout the parking lot. With its elegant construction, comes a small, yet tasteful selection of stores, including Anthropologie, Lululemon, Urban Outfitters and Apple.
After you have had a little time to browse the high quality selection of stores, one of your dining options include Casa de Bandini. Casa de Bandini is a Mexican restaurant that has high taste in style and in food. You can even listen to their live mariachi band. (Tip: Try the fajitas.) You also can’t go wrong with fresh, hand-made tortillas, filled with colorful veggies and topped with juicy chicken or steak! They melt in your mouth and go perfectly with their (giant) and really tasty margaritas.
The Forum is open everyday of the week with most stores opening at 10 AM.
The Forum is located at:
1923 Calle Barcelona
Carlsbad, CA 92009
