Carlsbad is an upscale coastal resort city with old-world charm in northern San Diego County, in Southern California. The city has mild Mediterranean weather throughout the year and calls itself the golf capital of the world with four award winning courses within the city and many others nearby.
40% of Carlsbad’s land has been reserved for open space to protect its natural setting and beauty, resulting in miles of walking trails in its rolling hills and along its three lagoons. Eleven miles of beaches and graceful historic buildings from the 1880’s add to its allure. Fortune Magazine has rated Carlsbad as one of the five best places to retire in the U.S, although 78% of its population are under 55.
Carlsbad now has a population of 105,000 and boasts the headquarters of medical technology and manufacturing firms as well as the first Legoland outside of Europe.
Carlsbad is a premier growing region of poinsettias and other flowers. In May and November, the Carlsbad Chamber of Commerce hosts the Carlsbad Village Street Fairs, the largest one-day fairs in the nation with 900 vendors and 100,000 attendee’s each.
Beautiful panoramas await from the beaches’ bluffs, reefs and sand. Surfing, swimming, walking along the shore and fishing are enjoyed by residents and visitors alike. Carlsbad is a winning combination of resort and working city, refreshing open space and historic structures, beauty and calm. For more information on this community click here.
