The upscale city of Carlsbad has a population of slightly over 100,000 residents. Known as the “Village by the Sea,” Carlsbad houses three lagoons and one lake. Its beaches and lagoons offer hours of activities as well as venues for rest and relaxation. The arrival of Spring produces a sea of colors as flower fields of ranunculus come into bloom. Carlsbad is also a premier growing region for poinsettias. This city by the sea is a blend of old world charm and modern day pleasures, with its oldest building dating back to 1887.
Carlsbad residents enjoy the safety of their community, the quality of their schools, and renowned resorts. There are many family-friendly activities, as the city is home to the Legoland California Resort - a multi-park theme resort, the Museum of Making Music, and a Children's Museum. The Carlsbad Chamber of Commerce hosts the Carlsbad Village Street Faire every May and November. These are the largest one-day street fairs in the nation with approximately 900 vendors and over 100,000 attendees.
The estimated median household income and median home value for Carlsbad are significantly higher than the state average, though the home prices are not nearly as high as the neighboring cities of Del Mar and Solana Beach.
What Staff are Saying:
- “Family oriented, Excellent schools and safety of neighborhoods.”
- “I live in the suburbs five miles away from the beach. My community is safe with good schools and I can take the train to work. Although my community is not very diverse, my neighborhood is.”
- “Lack of night life activities - no dancing clubs.”
- “The commute to work takes longer than I'd like, but I wouldn't move. Traffic to north county has gotten worse so driving isn't an option, but I do prefer the train as it's a pleasant ride with an ocean view.”
