Carlsbad, CA

Carlsbad is a thriving California city of about 95,000 people, located 35 miles north of San Diego on the Pacific coast. The city is named after Karlsbad, a European spa town in the Czech Republic, because mineral springs found here in the 1880s were believed to have the same healing properties as the Bohemian waters. Carlsbad, which was officially incorporated in 1952, became a charter city in 2008, which means it adheres to both California state law and its own set of governing laws.

This stable, wealthy coastal community has a median household income of $82,009. Mild temperatures enable residents to enjoy the stunning beaches, lagoons, and nearby mountains year-round.

NEIGHBORHOODS AND DISTRICTS

Many other residential developments provide a wide array of housing options throughout the city.

ECONOMY AND INDUSTRIES

Carlsbad is home to the headquarters of many health, wellness, and sporting companies, including Jenny Craig, Jazzercise, Callaway Golf, K2, Isis Pharmaceuticals, Invitrogen, and Sunrise Medical. Due to Carlsbad's tourism industry, about 20 golf companies do business in town.

The agricultural heritage of Carlsbad is still evident in its numerous flower and strawberry fields.

FOR VISITORS

Outdoor activities are abundant in Carlsbad, which boasts two state beaches: Carlsbad State Beach and South Carlsbad State Beach. Each has ample opportunities for swimming, surfing, and fishing. South Carlsbad State Beach also has a campground. Three lagoons, Agua Hedionda, Batiquitos, and Buena Vista, also provide space for a wealth of outdoor activities.

The city is planning to construct a thirty-two acre park and aquatic center complex on the southeast side. Once completed, the park will feature ball fields, a dog park, a skate park, basketball half-courts, hiking trails, and an aquatic center with an Olympic-sized pool.

Golfers also enjoy playing on a number of courses throughout the city.
