Carlsbad Premium Outlets is a well maintained complex featuring a great assortment of stores and eateries. It's centrally located and freeway close. The restrooms are clean and plentiful which in my book is key to a successful shopping excursion. On the downside, parking can be a nightmare, especially on weekends and holidays. They do offer valet service but even that... More

What's better that a mall? An outlet mall! This one is not too large but there are some good outlet stores to delight the shopping fanatic. Parking is tight but if you score a spot, hopefully, you can catch some good deals and make it worth the trip.

If you plan shopping on heavy use days you'll spend most of your time looking for a parking place. You can park accross the street and in the flower garden lots depending on the season. As outlet malls go this one is pretty good. Lots of benches to sit when you get tired. Several restaurants and places for snacks.

A great find, good mix of shops, and eateries, not so big that you will be there all day, but big enough to hunt out some bargains, well worth a visit

Definitely a great place to go shopping or to have a nice lunch or dinner. The prices are affordable as they are an outlet mall. Definitely work checking out.

I love the Premium Outlets. There's a great variety of shops to go to and you're bound to find something that suits your fancy! The outlets are super popular though, and the only reason I gave it four stars is because parking is crazy. Don't even bother finding parking in the main sections, you'll be safer going straight to the... More

Rules of conduct enforced. Great place for families to shop. A variety of stores and restaurants. Special events too. Not inexpensive but there are some deals to be found. A great way to spend an afternoon.

This was our first visit. And we love all the great Shops. My favorite was Kate Spade! So many name brands for good price! They have very high end stores as well. Worth stopping and shopping!

I was on a mission to find a pair of running shoes so I went to Nike and Acics stores. Staff was helpful and friendly.
