Carlsbad has a unique history in coastal San Diego County. Fresh drinking water that was readily available attracted people to the area, with the first record dating to 1769! Later explorers and entrepreneurs seized this opportunity to attract people and commerce. You can still find the Carlsbad Mineral Water Spa one block from the beach, using a well discovered in 1882. Water seems to be a theme, with Poseidon Water building the largest reverse osmosis plant in the world adjacent to Encina Power Plant.
A relaxed beach community (one of many in San Diego County,) Carlsbad residents relish playing as hard as they work. Averaging 263 sunny days a year means plenty of time in the surf and sand year-round. With average temperatures conducive to shorts and sandals all year, enjoying the outdoors has never been easier!
Shopping for and buying homes for sale in Carlsbad means access to world class infrastructure and amenities. La Costa Resort & Spa, Legoland, Gemological Institute of America are some of the largest employers and international draws. The newly remodeled McClellan-Palomar Airport is also readily available to take you around the world, ensuring international connectivity. Hop aboard and fly to Los Angeles, where you can pick up a connecting flight both domestically and internationally.
The population of Carlsbad resides in four different zip codes, broken up into quadrants that revolve around the intersection of Palomar Airport Road and El Camino Real. Interesting enough, Carlsbad also incorporates four different city school systems, due to overlapping boundaries with neighboring areas.
