“Great place for a stroll”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2012

This area is a joy to visit. There are many great clothing and craft shops, and coffee and desert and places are favorites of the locals too! I loved the high end resale clothing shop!

“Great family trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2012

This was our second trip with Carlsbad as our base. Carlsbad Village has a small town feel with many quaint shops and good restaurants. There is a neat Irish heritage shop with a very friendly and helpful owner and an English shop with cool British candy and snacks. Would definitely go again.

Quite small and quaint (more like a small UK county town) but has a huge choice of restaurants and little shops.
