MI-BOX Moving Guide to Carlsbad, California​

Moving to Carlsbad, California​

As thousands of Americans keep moving to San Diego every year in search of new opportunities, they often set their sights on the nearby alluring city of Carlsbad. This picturesque town, fondly referred to as “The Village By the Sea” by its residents, comes with a rich, fascinating history and has dollops of old-world charm.

Whether you are moving to San Diego with kids, friends, family, or by yourself, this guide can help you out by providing some of the most helpful tips for moving to Carlsbad. Below you will find details about the city’s history, climate, neighborhoods, and local attractions. Also included is information about moving to Carlsbad, various moving companies in San Diego, and the many storage solutions that they can offer for your big move.

Carlsbad History​

One of the most exciting things to know before moving to San Diego, and specifically to the town of Carlsbad, is that this region is well known for its rich local history. The earliest residents of the area now known as Carlsbad were the Luiseño Indians. The term ‘Luiseño’ was given to them years later by Spanish explorers due to their settlements being closely located to the Spanish Mission San Luis Rey.

The Luiseño people were incredibly self-sufficient and were adept at utilizing the natural resources found in the region to provide for their food and clothing needs. Due to this close relationship they had with their environment, they were skilled at harvesting various local plants and growing fruits and vegetables to sustain their wholesome diet. This region of Carlsbad was also home to various birds and animals that were hunted by the Luiseño people to provide skin and meat for the community.

It was in the 16th century that this Native American community first made contact with Spanish Explorers. The most significant of these was the Portola Expedition of 1769, which eventually became the first European exploration of the interiors of the region that is now known as California. Eventually, the region of Carlsbad fell under the New Spain province of Alta California, following the expansion of the Spanish Empire into North America. As Mexico achieved independence from Spain in 1821, it took Alta California, and therefore the town of Carlsbad with it. However, the city wasn’t known as Carlsbad at the time.

Before moving to Carlsbad, it might be worth knowing the delightful story behind the name of the town. Sometime in the 1880s, John Frazier, a former sailor, dug a well in the region and started offering his water at the train station located nearby. Not too long after, this spot became popular among locals and was dubbed Frazier’s Station. After a few years, when a test was done on the water found in the well, it was discovered that the water was chemically similar to that found in the Bohemian town of Karlsbad.

For years afterward, the legend of this mineral water containing healing properties grew and passengers traveling by train would often make a stop at Carlsbad to experience it themselves. Finding the circumstances ripe for opportunity, the Carlsbad Land and Mineral Water Company was soon established and the town was subsequently named ‘Carlsbad’ to boost the popularity of this discovery.

By the 1880s, new residents had started moving to Carlsbad in hordes and new homes and businesses started cropping up all over the town. The land in Carlsbad was also ripe for agriculture, and this time period saw widespread growth of citrus fruits, avocados, and olives in the area.

The town of Carlsbad, however, was first incorporated in the year 1952, in order to avoid being annexed by its neighboring city of Oceanside. Today, the town is best known for being a popular attraction for tourists from around the country. The John Frazier Well that started it all can still be found at the Alt Karlsbad House.

Carlsbad​ Geography

Before moving to San Diego, and particularly the alluring locale of Carlsbad, it might be worth knowing more about the geographical significance of the area. The coastal city of Carlsbad is located in the County of San Diego in California, and according to the Census of 2010, was recorded to have a population of almost 105,328. Carlsbad covers an area of about 39.08 square miles, with 37.77 square miles being land and 1.30 square miles (or 3.55%) of water. The majority of these water bodies are contained within one lake and three lagoons in the city. Carlsbad is situated at an elevation of 52 feet and has modest variations of elevation in its topography.

The northern part of Carlsbad is part of a tri-city area made up of northern Carlsbad, southern Oceanside, and western Vista. The city has a large number of oceanside cliffs along its shore and is home to several expansive white sand beaches, making it a popular destination for tourists.

If you are considering moving to San Diego for work opportunities, it might be helpful to have an idea of the distance between the two locations. Carlsbad is located at a distance of about 33 miles, or 56 kilometers from San Diego, California. A number of people consider moving to Carlsbad to commute between the two locations by car, which takes about 30 to 35 minutes along the I-5S route. You can also travel to San Diego via bus, train, and taxi. To help you out with moving to Carlsbad, you can reach out to a number of moving companies in San Diego that can offer some excellent storage solutions to suit your needs.
