The picturesque seaside community of Carlsbad is located in coastal North County San Diego, south of Oceanside north of Encinitas. It is home to the world renowned La Cost Resort & Spa, the exclusive Aviara Park Hyatt Luxury Resort, scenic Carlsbad state beach, the famous Carlsbad Flower Fields, 'Legoland', its own Palomar airport and recently opened municipal golf course. The quaint Carlsbad Village, in 'Olde Carlsbad', is enjoyed by locals and tourists year round. The Carlsbad Unified School District is one of the best in San Diego County. Carlsbad's near perfect climate and its attractive planned residential communities, including Aviara, Rancho Carrillo, Calavera Hills, Bressi ranch, La Costa Valley and La Costa Oaks, make it one of San Diego's most sought after areas to live in. The established neighborhood of 'La Costa', nestled in the hills of south Carlsbad above the La Costa Resort & Spa, derives its name from its close proximity to the famous Resort. Carlsbad is also a 'shoppers paradise' hosting 'The Carlsbad Forum', 'Camino Plaza Real' mall and the Carlsbad 'Outlet Stores' mall.
