Carlsbad an ideal base for San Diego visit
With Big Sister San Diego just 35 miles to the south, the young and developing Carlsbad probably always will be hidden a bit in her sister's shadow – but vacationers from all over California are now beginning to discover Carlsbad's many charms.

It's a trade-off, of course. Come to Carlsbad and you eliminate the traffic and congestion of the city, the freeways, the constant "be-on-alert" driving and hassle you always experience in a big city. But then you also eliminate the Gaslamp District, Old Town, the Zoo, Coronado and a large selection of San Diego hotels.
