Carlsbad village is a great place to do some shopping. They have a great sushi restaurant above the shops to enjoy lunch. They have stores of all kinds..from boutiques to jewelry to tourist gift shops! We hit some GREAT sales and it wasn't very packed. We enjoyed snacks by the fountain and large chess board.

I've been coming to Carlsbad for 50 years. As a surfer and now just shop and hang out. Walking along the beach walk is a must. And, walking through town is a delight. Lots of very unique stores. Great date place.

A lovely village, that's easy to get around, with small interesting shops, no major retailers, small artisan boutiques, plenty of opportunity, for food and drink, sitting outside watching the world go by.

Came on vacation with daughter and her hubby and little one. The town is very friendly with a large portion of it walkable from our hotel. Hubby is a runner and enjoyed the beach walkways. Everyone he met on his am runs were friendly and helpful. Many were accompanied with their dogs, as the whole town appears to be pet... More

Wonderful restaurants, cafes, shopping, night life, and so much more! Wednesday is the Farmers Market day, November and May we have the largest Street Fair in the US! We... More

Twice a year they close the streets and have a huge craft fare. We were lucky to attend that Sunday Nov 6th. Large assortment of vendors, food, craftsmen. Town is cute with lots of eateries. It is a short walk to the ocean and beach.

Cute and quaint - that's Carlsbad Village. Shopping, eating and music all on one place. We went several times while there. The last visit included Craftburger and the chocolate shop on the corner - Yum!
