I like this town. It is not overwhelming no matter when you visit. With first class shops and restaurants it is a great place to escape from the big City crowds.

We loved visiting the village of Carlsbad. Fantastic restaurants and eclectic shopping abound. People were warm and friendly. The beach was awesome. Definitely a Jim on the Pacific coast that should not be missed.
