Carlsbad: The Tourist Destination

Nor-SheratonThe Union-Tribune explains exactly why our hometown is such a great place to visit and live, but they’re not talking about downtown Carlsbadistan, no they’re talking about everything east of I-5 (is that possible?).

It’s 66 degrees on a shimmering day in the middle of January. . . This could be any coastal city in San Diego County, which is what makes the region fertile ground for tourism. . . But this is Carlsbad, and what has made Carlsbad an exceptional tourist draw among its peers is not what’s going on west of the sandy beach, but east of it. . . Being in North County is a plus, too, said David Brundley, an international hospitality and marketing consultant based in Carlsbad. “Carlsbad has got a great location, and it benefits that it’s not downtown San Diego, but it’s not that far away,” Brundley said.

Of course, we all know this, but if you want to freshen up on how great Carlsbad is, read the rest of the story.
