As the new tech-hub of North County San Diego, Carlsbad truly offers something for everyone. Initially finding fame from its beautiful family-friendly beaches, Carlsbad added the Legoland California Theme Park in 1999, increasing its visibility as a world-class destination. Now the hills are covered with upscale communities, such as La Costa and Aviara, and sophisticated shopping centers boast an abundance of dining options. The biannual Carlsbad Village Faire is the largest street fair in the world. To top it all off, there are many award-winning schools and sprawling city parks, making Carlsbad a very desirable place to call home.
