Wander along the quaint streets and see the amazing crafts and wares of our local merchants! Mant fine restaurants, try Coyote Grill a real icon in the area for local brews, cocktails and Mexican food. Fidel's is also located across the street from Coyotes along the beach front. Nice beach walk for bikes, and evening walks.

this village is so nice, tucked in between San Diego and Los Angles it still has the small town feel just moments away from big city experience. Beautiful beaches and world class accommodations, with restaurants to good to believe. I love living here.

Loved it, people so nice, weather was excellent. Walked the beach from ocean side to the village. Beautiful. Recommend Carlsbad to everyone. Not as busy San Diego.

Quaint town centre with lots of individual shops - no large chains apart from Starbucks. Beautiful seating area and fountain in the middle.

Fun day of shopping! Antiques, clothing, gifts, and more. You can park and walk the village. Be sure to catch the Farmers Market on Wednesday afternoons.

I walked from the hotel to the many shops in Carlsbad Village. I really liked one of the yogurt shops.

Amazing beach side shopping and food. Craft burger and the Coyote Grill are must stops for food. Beaches are clean and have great waves.

Carlsbad has a very small town/village feel to it. Good restaurants and cute little shops. Fantastic little corner donut shop (forget the name), and at least a couple brew pubs.

Lovely village to walk around in, check out the shops, and eat at various restaurants. Very close to the beach, and even more importantly, very nice people all around.

Beautiful quaint coastal town, with nice shops and restaurants. Just a few blocks from the beach, within walking distance. Everyone is warm and friendly.
