Carlsbad is a seaside resort city in North San Diego County

Carlsbad was incorporated in 1952, in large part to generate sufficient funding to connect with the water pipeline running through San Diego County. It is one of the highest-income communities in the country.

The city of Carlsbad has drafted ordinances to protect sensitive wildlife habitat, becoming one of the first municipalities in California to do so. The city has also pledged to protect a specified amount of land within the city limits from development of any kind and spends significant funds to restore habitats destroyed by newer development projects.

Carlsbad is located approximately 27 miles north of San Diego. Its coastal location, scenic beauty, low population density, thriving commercial sector, abundance of upscale housing, and high performing school districts have made Carlsbad one of the most expensive housing markets in the United States.
