Welcome to Carlsbadistan. The site that attempts to tame the wilds of Carlsbad, California. We love the Village, don’t get east of El Camino much and couldn’t care less about anything North of Buena Vista lagoon. If it’s south of Ponto, we may have read about it somewhere. In other words, we pretty much stick around The Neighborhood.

That said, there are a lot of cool things going on in Carlsbad that we never knew about. We’ve built this website as an excuse to discover, explore, and learn about everything that is going on in Carlsbad and then share them on the web with thousands of visitors who check our site out each month.

Check back often as this site will continue to grow. If you have ideas on ways you think we could make Carlsbadistan better, please let us know by sending email to Theeditors (at)


If you are a Carlsbadistan business owner who would like to communicate more directly and consistently with more than 10,000 readers each month we have exactly what you’re looking for. is now offering a limited number of efficient, effective online advertising opportunities for delivering extremely targeted messages to Carlsbad locals and visitors alike.
