Carlsbad

Carlsbad: Beautiful village by the Sea

Surrounded by mountains, lagoons and the Pacific Ocean, the City of Carlsbad is a unique coastal community located 35 miles north of the San Diego. From my perspective, there are three sections of interest in Carlsbad.

First: The downtown area, "Carlsbad Village,'" which is located in the western center, has just about everything a tourist could want at a seaside resort. Shops, spas, restaurants, lodging and easy access to the Pacific Ocean are all within walking distance.

Second: At the northeast end of Carlsbad is the Buena Vista Lagoon. The section south of Highway 78 is near the North County Plaza Shopping Center.

Third: At the southern end of Carlsbad is the Aqua Hedionda Lagoon, Palomar Airport, Legoland, The Flower Fields and Rancho de los Quiotes among other attractions. Intro by lmkluque.
