Surfing. Hiking. Swimming. You’ll be endlessly entertained when you live in Carlsbad.

Life moves a little slower in North County (Carlsbad is part of it). It’s about spending a day at the beach swimming and sunning. Catching a perfect wave at Swami’s. Hiking the breathtaking trails at Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve.

Living in North County is about having fresh California cuisine. Savoring a glass of wine as the sun goes down. Strolling the 101 after dark. Taking in a local band as the evening grows late.

“Carlsbad and the GIA campus are so beautiful. I loved every minute of it,” is a popular refrain of GIA alums. Live here and we’re sure you’ll agree with them.
