Carlsbad Village has a charming street with many interesting little shops. We had good time exploring and enjoyed what the farmers market had to offer.

The shops and restaurants are nice but we were disappointed that the beach is not dog freiindly. We ate at a dog friendly cafe and shopped but there isn't much more to do.

Carlsbad village is a very nice place to shop and eat. We also accessed the beach right near the village and it was very nice. Village is clean and has everything you need for a family vacation.

The shops in the village close early at 5:00. The outlet mall that isn't far away would be the only stores open until 9:00pm.
