ENCINITAS — The Encinitas Preservation Association (EPA) is rolling out a summertime historical bus tour from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. July 19.
The tour will depart from the city hall parking lot at 505 S. Vulcan Ave. at 9 a.m. and return at 1 p.m. Lunch will be available for $5. The tour will include 50 historical points of interest and scheduled stops including the Old Encinitas School House, San Elijo Lagoon, OIivenhain Town Hall, San Dieguito Heritage Museum and a drive through the San Diego Botanic Gardens. The highlight of the tour will be a rare opportunity to tour Bumann Ranch. Tour guides on the bus will give a brief history or story about each area.
Each ticket supports the preservation of one of Encinitas’ historical buildings, the Boathouses. The EPA acquired the SS Moonlight and SS Encinitas in 2008 in order to maintain them and make sure they remain in place for future generations.
Tickets are $40 and available at the Encinitas 101 MainStreet office, 818 S. Coast Highway 101. For more information, contact Carolyn Cope at (760) 753-4834 or e-mail at Cope3@cox.net.
