Carlsbad Real Estate
Carlsbad has 7-mile (11 km) stretch of Pacific coastline in North San Diego County, California. The city is located 87 miles (140 km) south of Los Angeles and 35 miles (56 km) north of downtown San Diego. Referred to as "The Village by the Sea" by locals, Carlsbad's Mediterranean climate attracts visitors year-round to its quaint hotels and five-star luxury resorts. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the city had a population of 106,888 as of July 2011. In the 1880s a test done on a fresh-water well discovered the water to be chemically similar to that found in some of the most renowned spas in the world, and the town was named after the famed Spa in the Bohemian town of Karlsbad. The first modern skateboard park, Carlsbad Skatepark, was built here in March 1976. In 1999, Legoland California, the first Legoland theme park outside of Europe, now owned and operated by Merlin Entertainments, opened in Carlsbad. The Palomar Airport is the only commuter terminal in North County with scheduled flights which reflects the large number of corporate headquarters located in the City.
