Live, Work and Play – The Carlsbad Way

 

Carlsbad, California (Village by the Sea)    is a charming city located on the Pacific Coast, 35 miles north of downtown San Diego and 87 miles south of Los Angeles.

History

Carlsbad began in the 1880’s as a whistle stop for the new California Southern Railroad. It was known as Fraizer’s station at the time, but was renamed “Carlsbad” when Mr. Fraizer discovered his hand dug well  produced mineral water equal in content to one of Europe’s most popular health spa, Karlsbad, Bohemia. The well still produces mineral water to this day.

Hi Jill Moog , My brother used to live in Carlsbad years ago.  Unfortunately I have not been there for 50 years, only to see the caverns.  That's great information for people interested in what it has to offer.
