This gives us Carlsbad-ians many excuses to get our butts on the freeway to go enjoy the spoils of downtown San Diego...but then again, it's such a pain to drive all the way down there...
All complaints aside, I really do enjoy living in Carlsbad.
So here I am, living in the home of Legoland, the Flower Fields, beautiful stretches of coastline, and the much over-rated outlet mall. As a self-defined food snob, I am sorry to say that the dining options here in Carlsbad are not as outstanding as other places I have lived, say, Orange County. However, there are some gems with outstanding food here and I am happy to share them with anybody who asks.
There is a great running path here, and it is right along the coast, so it is really easy to find.
The Flower Fields are only a springtime thing, and stay as long as the weather permits. This year it was pretty sorry. I was happy though, because the parking at the outlet mall gets really bad there when the flower fields are happening, and I couldn't find a parking space to go to rubios, which irritated me.
The thing is, living in such a place, I have come to know it on a more intimate level. Please let me know if you will be traveling to Carlsbad and I will give you some tips on good places to eat, stupid tourist traps to avoid, and where the best places to park are...information that only a local could give you.
Anyway, with that said, enjoy the pictures and videos from Carlsbad.
