Carlsbad is one of the most thriving cities in San Diego County—it’s both a top tourist destination as well as a desirable place to live. That’s because Carlsbad has much to offer visitors and locals alike.
Throughout its history, Carlsbad has attracted people because of its gorgeous setting. Early settlers discovered that the town had a beautiful coastline, a Mediterranean-type of climate, groves of towering trees, gently rolling hills, and fields of colorful flowers. In fact, Carlsbad was also a rich source of mineral water, which is why town was named after another city with abundant springs of water, Karlsbad in Bohemia (what is now the Czech Republic).
These rich natural resources are still a major attraction for people who want to live or travel here. Throughout the year, people are surfing, swimming, hiking, running, and biking at the beaches or the many trails and parks. Carlsbad is also home to three lagoons: Agua Hedionda, Batiquitos, and Buena Vista. These are ideal spots for bird-watching, water sports, or hiking through a nature preserve. Every year, Carlsbad’s agricultural roots are honored with The Flower Fields, where ranunculus blooms in a rainbow of colors put on a show from March through May.
There are many other things to do in Carlsbad. The city has a historic downtown Village with hip new shops and restaurants, as well major shopping venues such as The Shoppes at Carlsbad, The Forum, and Carlsbad Premium Outlets. Kids of all ages love coming to Legoland California, a major theme park that also includes an aquarium and a water park. There is also top-shelf golf at Carlsbad’s luxury resorts, which include the Park Hyatt Aviara Resort and the Omni La Costa Resort and Spa.
Locals enjoy all these amenities, as well as a temperate climate, a booming business sector, and transportation choices including an Amtrak/Coaster train station and the McClellan-Palomar Airport. It’s no surprise that Carlsbad’s population now numbers 115,330 people who live in a diverse array of neighborhoods ranging from historic homes to newly built tracts.
Drug and Alcohol Treatment for Carlsbad Residents
Carlsbad is a wonderful town. But if you live there and are deciding to seek treatment for substance addictions, you should consider an out-of-town option. Taking that first step towards recovery is an important one that requires all your time and focus. That may be hard to do if you are still in the town where you live—and even harder if you are trying to get away from the people or triggers that would be an obstacle for recovery.
