Why We Love It

Carlsbad, often referred to as "Village by the Sea" by locals, has transformed itself from a simple midway stop between Los Angeles and San Diego into its own vacation destination. Its relaxed coastal culture is home to a Mediterranean climate, pacific coast views, sandy beaches, a downtown village, championship golf courses, spring rose gardens, and the famous Legoland attraction.
