Why We Love Living In Carlsbad, CA

Why We Love Living In Carlsbad, CA.jpg

By Brett Gottlieb and John Mc Kean

There’s no greater feeling than loving where you live. And when where you live is a stunning coastal city with a mild climate that has something for everyone, well, that’s just the icing on the cake! And in our case, Carlsbad is a paradise we are lucky enough to call home!

If you’re looking for a place to live (or visit) in California, we highly recommend adding Carlsbad to the top of your list. There are endless reasons to love it here, but if we had to narrow it down to just four, here’s what they’d be.


One of the many draws of Carlsbad is the unbelievable beaches. Located about 30 miles from San Diego, Carlsbad’s beaches are less crowded and touristy, and the beach community has managed to hold onto its small-town, laid-back feel despite the city’s growth. Our beaches are known for being clean and perfect for surfing, leisurely walks, beach volleyball, soccer, biking, and building sandcastles. Some beaches even provide firepits for beachgoers to enjoy a bonfire at the end of a sun-filled day. You can’t go wrong with spending a day at any of our favorite beaches, such as South Ponto State Beach, South Carlsbad State Beach, Terra Mar Point, and Tamarack State Beach.

Activities For Everyone

No matter what your passions, interests, and hobbies are, there’s something for you in Carlsbad. Looking for great shopping? Our downtown boutiques and outdoor shopping centers allow you to spend time in the sunshine while browsing the stores. Our town boasts the Carlsbad Premium Outlets, The Forum, and the recently renovated Shoppes at Carlsbad Mall.

If you want a family-friendly outing, LEGOLAND is always a good choice. We also love reveling in the beauty of The Flower Fields at Carlsbad Ranch, playing around at the Museum of Making Music, and watching the peacocks show off their beautiful plumes at the Leo Carrillo Ranch Historic Park.

And don’t forget about golf! If you enjoy the sport, Carlsbad is the place for you. Not only have many major equipment manufacturers made Carlsbad their home base, such as TaylorMade and Callaway, but there are plenty of fantastic courses to test your skill. We suggest The Crossings at Carlsbad, the Omni La Costa Resort & Spa, and the course at the Four Seasons Aviara. 

Your Choice of Restaurants

And since a day at the beach, shopping, or a round of golf will leave you hungry, be sure to check out some of Carlsbad’s unbelievable dining establishments. Carlsbad Village, located downtown and close to the beach, has plenty of restaurants to choose from which offer unique food and views of the ocean. So, whether you just want to grab a quick burrito from Cessy’s Taco Shop on the way to the beach or are in the mood for a full wine-and-dine experience while watching the sunset at Vigilucci’s, these restaurants will not disappoint.
