Welcome to the city of Carlsbad! You will absolutely love the area and the amount of activities to do and see are endless. The close proximity to the beaches and various fun spots including Lego Land, the La Costa world class golf resort and spa, and surfing are just a few of the many activities you can embark on with no shortage of fine dining and night life which are all local favorites you will enjoy. Entry level homes start at about $750,000 and work their way up to about $1,900,000 for detached homes and condominiums starting in the mid to high $400 range are more in abundance due to land being more cost per acre in value for development and single family living. The quality of life is none other than living in paradise where seasonal temperatures never fluctuate more than 25 degrees with the coastal breeze that is always a constant reminder of being in a tropical environment. Carlsbad is also known as the flower capital of the United States, it has a history dating back to 1882 where Captain John Frazier dug a well and found that the water had certain mineral rich qualities similar to that of the aquifer found in the Bohemian town of Karlsbad in Europe. Captain Frazier began offering his water at the train station and soon the whistle-stop became known as Frazier’s Station. A test done on a second fresh-water well discovered the water to be chemically similar to that found in some of the most renowned spas in the world, and that's how Carlsbad got it's name.
