Re: dogs

by Odinnthor

Eh, which Carlsbad, - California, Texas or New Mexico....?

If it is California.....which train....? Amtrak or Legoland.....?

If it is Legoland, they put your dog in a kennel

Amtrak, I believe only allows seeing eye dogs.

Travel Tips for Carlsbad

See a Carlsbad Treasure: Ocean House

by marinarena

Pretty buildings as seat of town history!

The Ocean house represents much of Carlsbad's history. Originally named Twins Inn and secondly, Neimans, the colorful and charming building is seated in the town roots. Town founder, John A. Frazier dug a water well around here and noticed that the water levels were coparable to one found in Karlsbad, Bohemia (Germany). So, hence the town's name!

For a true Carlsbad experience, come to Ocean House for accomodations, dining, attending special events/parties or just stand by the German man and water dome, then have your picture taken.

As are all Carlsbad Village landmarks, Ocean House is a short walking distance to the train.

German sheppards

by matcrazy1

Do they like German sheppards? I saw a few (3 if I remember) German sheppards dogs driving through Carlsbad. Coincidence?
Probably, but... who knows?

And it seems that they feed their dogs well hmm... sometimes over-well I could say.

Surfing is a popular pastime for the young and old throughout San Diego County especially on famous Swami's Beach in Encinitas, a few miles south of Carlsbad.

Famous from the Beach Boy’s hit song Surfin’ USA,' in Encinitas is one of San Diego’s prime surf spots. In January 2002, Encinitas was named “One of the Top 10 Surf Towns in the United States “ by Surfer Magazine.
Along with “huarachi sandals and bushy , bushy blonde hairdos..., 'Swami”'s Beach offers big and challenging waves for experienced surfers.

From Vicki (expresso):
The beach below the cliff is called "Swami's" and is the best surfing beach in San Diego County, has an nice reff and off-shore southern-facing break. High cliff, access from 101, populated by experienced surfers, a "locals" beach.

"Victims" of the automobile technology

by matcrazy1

In 1918 Baron Long closed his famous Ship Café on the canal in Venice, California. His specialty chef, Eddie Kentner, drove south seeking a likely place to relocate. Attracted to the Twin Inns, he acquired the business on November 5, 1919.

Travel between Los Angeles and San Diego by automobile was arduous in the 1920s. The Twin Inns soon became a favorite stopping place for travelers, enhanced, perhaps, by Mr. Kentner's willingness to prepare meals at all hours of the night for "victims" of the automobile technology of the '20s. Prohibition drove many fun-seekers south, attracted to Baron Long's newest venture, which he built south of the border, the Caliente Race Track and Gambling Spa in Tijuana.
