This center is nicely done and offers great stores for those seeking a bargain. You can also find affordable dining options on site and across the street, which adds to your shopping experience. I was disappointed that they turned off the lovely fountains, as they note the water shortage in this area. My biggest complaint is the parking here. On... More

Great place for women. Unsatisfactory facilities for men who wait for them. No chairs in stores and only hard benches in the sun for the men in their lives.

What a let down! Average stores with nothing exciting, so not really sure where the "premium" kicks in.

We made a pit stop at the Carlsbad Outlet when we visited California for my husband's job. The place is huge so unfortunately, we didn't get to see too much. We made purchases from Ann Taylor (for myself) and the Nike store. To say it was in the middle of the week, the parking lot was packed with cars and... More

Good mix of national name brands (food and shops) with quality merchandise for sale. Outdoor shopping center, but the weather is always so perfect, so it isn't a problem

had a chance to pop by the Carlsbad premium outlets after an afternoon at the Legoland park next door. Overall nice layout however not your typical high end shops that are at the Palm Springs outlets. Barneys, Kate Spade and BCBG are the three I focused in on. Moderate shops like BR and GAP also are there.

We happened upon this outlet mall on a recent family vacation to Legoland. It was a short distance from the hotel we were staying at and we ended up visiting this mall twice during our stay. Quite a few popular "high-end" brand stores were there and the mall was undoubtedly busy. We ended up trying the Blaze Pizzeria for dinner... More
