Happy Independence Day 2024

The July 4th holiday is just around the corner. Naturally there will be Celebrations and Fireworks in and around Carlsbad, including private festivities, cookouts, and picnics. And for some that means beach time too! Let’s hope our warm, sunny weather continues!

You may have noticed already that the summer crowds have picked up, restaurants are busy, and public parking at the beaches, and in the Village, is harder to find. Furthermore, you can expect more over the holiday week and weekend
