Visitor Information

Since 1914, when the South Coast Land Company secured water rights from Oceanside, the population of Carlsbad was at 300. Today, the population count has skyrocketed to almost 100,000.

The lure to Carlsbad first occurred from early settlers in the last 1800s who discovered rich mineral content in the area’s water. These settlers were from Germany, many of whom came from the city of Karlsbad. After they relished in the similar mineral water as their homeland, they dubbed their new home Carlsbad.
