Welcome to Carlsbad

Once a small, funky beachside village and still a classic surf town, Carlsbad California is a hip tourist destination along U.S. Highway 101 between Los Angeles and San Diego. In the late 19th century, the area was developed as a spa town and named after the famed Karlsbad spa in what is now the Czech Republic. Old Carlsbad and Carlsbad Village preserve the unique California vibe and offer boutiques, antique shops, specialty stores, and numerous restaurants. With miles of perfect beaches, attractions like the Legoland California theme park, Tamarack Surf Beach, the beach walk bike path, and everything from indoor skydiving to whale watching, Carlsbad is fun for visitors of all ages.
