Pleasing village to wander around with a variety and plenty of shops. Wish I had more time to visit each one.

I have been to the Carlsbad street fair and they have vendors galore! I have spent hours just browsing. But I am a picky shopper so I only buy what I really want. But I would recommend others to definitely do not miss this one!

You only have to par along the shore in the village during a sunset to really get into Carlsbad. There are a wide variety of different cultural eating places, and music listening to please.

I loved that fact that the people in the area were so friendly and the shops were just lovely. The proprietors of the shops were very welcoming, even if you just wanted to walk around and browse.

We stayed at a condo on Oak Avenue and it was within walking distance of many different restaurants and shops. This is little community is very clean and feels extremely safe. We were also within walking distance of the gorgeous beach. I would definitely vacation here again!

Many unique shops to browse through,, great restaurants, close to the beach, easy walking distance between stores. The restaurants vary from American, Italian, and Mexican and all are very reasonable.
