Great food, live music, small bars, and shopping. It's so inviting and very easy to get around. We walk down to State Street and back up to the beach. All the little streets tucked in between have something neat on them, you just have to...More

There are so many great shops and restaurants in this little area. It's about 3-4 streets worth that are very walkable and tourist friendly. We enjoyed eating down here and buying from some of the local stores.

This place seemed like a tourist trap to me. Nothing special. Small shops and restaurants. We had dessert at one of the stores, order at counter and sit at small table. I wouldn't go back.

Seapointe Resort personnel go out of their way to make you feel like you are special. They always smile and say something positive to you. They do spoil you.

Nice mix of shops and restaurants. Free parking in the city is a big plus for me. Wednesday's farmers market was ok was one block long but wish it was more diverse.

The town of Carlsbab is sweet with a lot of charming restaurants. Nice strolling around town. The ocean breeze was wonderful. I also love the smell of the ocean.

I would start at the Starbucks near the corner of Carlsbad Village Dr. and the Coast that extends to Oceanside, the name changes but google it, it's on the same street as the Naval Academy. Grab a latte and walk behind the... More
