Carlsbad Overview

Carlsbad is a beautiful, mellow beachside community with many wonderful things to offer. It is a good place for those who are looking for a more relaxing beach trip, but yet want to be close enough to San Diego to go and enjoy all that it has to offer as well.

Places of interest in Carlsbad include the Carlsbad Village area, the Flower Fields (seasonal...visit in the Spring), and of course, the beautiful coastline. Carlsbad is a very bicycle-friendly community, with bike lanes all over the city, so make sure to bring your bike or rent one from one of the many places around town to rent a bicycle and pedal around to explore the city!

Park at Tamarack Beach and walk the seaside beach path sidewalk, which will take you about 1.5 miles if you walk from one side all the way to the end and back.

The Carlsbad Outlet Mall provides a nice shopping experience as well. Also known for its Legoland amusement park for children.
