lodginglodging reservations in Carlsbad

Surfing, shopping and seaside lodging near Tamarack, the boardwalk is the giant sea wall in coastal Carlsbad California. Over the past few decades this small seaside community has transformed from a sleepy surfing spot to an upscale tourists village. New large scale resorts & condos, renamed streets & the nearby theme park, Legoland, has helped contribute to it's growth. Take the train, this is a stroll-able seaside town!
