Carlsbad Real Estate - 92008, 92009, 90210 and 90211
The natural spring water in Carlsbad is similar to that of the spring water found in Karlsbad, Germany. That similarity inspired early homesteaders in 1886 to name their new town Carlsbad. The city is located in the northern coastal area of San Diego County, north of Encinitas and just south of Oceanside.

The Luiseno Indians liked to camp along the lagoon that is near what is now the town. The Spaniards traveling along what would become the El Camino Real named the lagoon Agua Hedionda which in Spanish means "stinking water." Legend has it that they unknowingly were camping upwind from a fishing camp!

Ten miles north of the lagoon, the Mission San Luis Rey was founded when the missions were secularized in the year 1833. The land that eventually became the town of Carlsbad was originally claimed by a gentleman named Juan Maria Romouldo Marron. Marron resided in San Diego. He ran cattle on his Rancho Agua Hedionda. The Rancho passed to American hands following his death.

Two Americans with a German background arrived in 1888 to build their town of small and gracious homes.

In 1914, the town's population was around 300 residents. At that point in time, water rights from Oceanside were secured by the South Coast Land Company. The town's agriculture grew to include bulbs, avocados, fruit orchards and flowers. To this day Carlsbad is famous for its flower fields. The colorful fields are an annual spring attraction for tourists and locals alike.

The town's proximity to Camp Pendleton brought in many new residents during World War II. Many of those who served in the war returned to make Carlsbad their home. The city was incorporated in 1952.

The Carlsbad of today is home to nearly 135,000 residents along with a growing assortment of light industries. LEGOLAND, one of San Diego county's major tourist attractions calls Carlsbad home. Carlsbad is also home to a major golf club and apparel company. Westfield Shopping Town Plaza Camino Real is locted on the northern border of the city and offers a wide variety of retailers including Macy's and JCPenney.
