5 Reasons I Love Carlsbad
I had never heard of Carlsbad, but by the end of my trip I was calling all my friends, telling them they had to go…
My travel bucket list is long and seemingly insatiable. The top tourist spots – Paris, Rome, Venice, Athens, London – have already been crossed off. And yet, when I was invited to Carlsbad — a city I had never heard of — I wasn’t sure what to expect.
In the four days I spent in Carlsbad, I learned that this town, just north of San Diego, is a scenic SoCal destination that’s surrounded by pristine golf courses and hill-top homes. It has all the perks of LA without the hype; the scenic views of San Diego, minus the congestion. After just a short trip, I was ready to call all my friends and tell them that they needed to go check it out. What makes this resort town such a hot-spot? Read on to find out…
Here are 5 reasons I loved my visit:
If this article is true, This may be a safeheaven from these 2 crowded places. Sure LA is big and all, But it is so crowded! Too much people walking around. I hate crowds! maybe this place will be a good vacation spot for me.
So it’s almost San Diego but not quite, Almost LA but not quite. Sounds good to me 😀 best of both locations without the people.
Even though I was there during the height of Summer, I never felt more welcome there, when I could go down to Carlsbad Village and just walk around. It was a lovely spot to find a place to eat and get a few drinks and look out at the ocean.
Seriously? I thought I’d been all over Cali… but I’ve never even heard of Carlsbad… now I’ll have to go check it out. Those flower fields are just waiting for me to orchestrate a glam photoshoot there 🙂
