Carlsbad Real Estate
Welcome to Carlsbad
Carlsbad is home to some of the most coveted zip codes in North County San Diego. With seven miles of coastline and several well-known tourist spots, including: two State Beaches, Legoland, The Carlsbad Flower Fields and Omni La Costa Resort and Spa, Carlsbad has a reputation for affluence and resort style living.
Located just 87 miles south of Los Angeles and 35-miles north of downtown San Diego, Carlsbad is a popular destination spot in North County because of its state beaches and amazing climate. It is also home to just over 110,000 residents.
Of course, being a tourist and being a resident are two different experiences. There are a lot of tourist spots that are great to visit, but you wouldn’t want to live there. This is certainly NOT the case in Carlsbad. The City of Carlsbad has so much to offer residents, from amazing schools to beautiful parks and engaging community events.
Did you know that the top 25 employers in San Diego County are closer to the city of Carlsbad than San Diego proper? That means less time commuting and more time on the beach! Several well-known companies from biotech to sports and fitness have established their corporate headquarters in Carlsbad, including: Callaway Golf Company, Jazzercise, Jenny Craig, Inc., Life Technologies, TaylorMade-adidas Golf Company, Upper Deck and ViaSat, Inc.
Carlsbad also has a small public airport called McClellan€“Palomar Airport (Palomar Airport) that offers commercial flights to and from Los Angeles International Airport, executive/private jet and general aviation services. There are also two stops within Carlsbad for the Coaster train, which runs along the coast daily from Oceanside to downtown San Diego.
Carlsbad has four distinct quadrants, each with its own zip code. The northwest quadrant (92008) is “Old Carlsbad”. This is where you find homes ranging from cottages and bungalows around the downtown “Village” to beautiful mansions overlooking the ocean. The “Village” offers plenty of shopping, dining and walkability, as well as long stretches of beach that everyone can enjoy.
The northeast area (92010) is mostly single-family homes with larger lots among the rolling hills just east of the coast. And, to the south of this area (92009), you’ll discover several newer master-planned communities, new shopping centers and the area known as La Costa. The southwest quadrant (92011) extends out to the Pacific Ocean to the south and includes the Aviara neighborhood. This area is also home to the Park Hyatt Aviara Resort & Golf Club.
Residents in the City of Carlsbad are served by a total of four school districts, as well as a number of private schools.

Pizza Port is a cherished Carlsbad favorite place to grab a pizza and enjoy craft beer with friends. It’s also a great example of the diverse environment you will find in Carlsbad traveling from the beach inland.
