Carlsbad is a unique coastal community located 35 miles north of the City of San Diego and surrounded by mountains, lagoons and the Pacific Ocean. Although the village dates back more than 100 years, the city wasn't incorporated until July 16, 1952. At that time, Carlsbad had a population of approximately 7,000 people and covered 7.5 square miles. Since its incorporation, the city is now home to almost 111,000 residents and 42 square miles.

Carlsbad's great beaches, local attractions, world class resorts, shopping and restaurants have earned the city a reputation as a complete vacation destination and a great place to call home. Amid the shopping centers, industrial parks and housing tracts punctuating the hills and valleys of Rancho Agua Hedionda are many vistas that would be recognized by the area's first inhabitants -- the Luiseno, the Spanish and Yankee rancheros.
To the west and north, the friendly small-town atmosphere envisioned by the town's earliest developers remains a feature of Carlsbad's historic downtown. The city offers a wide variety of real estate options of homes and prices.
