Enjoy Carlsbad downtown and the Ocean

Love this place. Paradise right at home. Plenty to do. Shops, restaurants, walkways, and the ocean nearby. A great way to spend a Saturday or Sunday afternoon or evening.

Carlsbad is pleasant. It is clean and fun to look around. The weather is breezy and wonderfully warm. A sunny place to go and enjoy for all ages.

This was a very family friendly area to walk around in. The shops were cool and a good mixture of different types of shops. I wish I had more time to walk around the village.
