Carlsbad is a seaside resort city located in San Diego County, California, and is currently home to over 109,300 residents. Carlsbad is a major tourist destination in northern San Diego County, which is saying something considering the tourism industry that San Diego has. Carlsbad today is known as the “Village by the Sea” by its residents and it is a part of the San Diego Metropolitan Statistical area, which is home to over three million residents.

Carlsbad was founded in the mid 19th century and the area experienced a growth spurt in the 1880’s, with many new homes and businesses coming to the town. By 1887, however, land value began to fall, though the community survived thanks mainly to the agricultural center of the city. After the end of World War II, the city began to transform; to avoid annexation by nearby Oceanside, in 1952 Carlsbad was incorporated as an independent city, and today much of its income comes from tourism-related ventures and consumerism.

Carlsbad enjoys a cooler climate than many areas of California due to its seaside nature; average daily highs in the city only reach into the low-to-mid 70’s. Overnight lows during the summer usually fall down into the low-to-mid 60’s, which explains why tourism is so big – it’s nice pretty much all day during the spring and summer. Fall and winter tend to bring cooler temperatures, though no really extreme weather other than the occasional storm; average highs in Carlsbad in the winter tend to reach into the low-to-mid 60’s, with overnight lows usually falling down into the mid-to-upper 40’s.
