I loved the laid back atmosphere in Carlsbad, where everyone seemed so chilled and happy. Several shops with plenty of parking options. There is a good selection of eateries and we had a great breakfast in one of the cafes each morning.

The French Pastry Cafe made exquisite three tiered cakes for both our 30th and 50th Wedding Anniversaries! And we had a lovely 12 inch Grooms Cake made as well. We love Paris and all things done as only the French do to perfection! When we can’t get to Paris, what do we do? Go to the French Pastry Cafe, of course!

Near the train station is the Tourist Office go there first, there is parking and the people are very helpful. If you have problem go to the station parking there always seems to be room there.

A cute village but not what I was expecting. There’s no “Main Street “ and it’s kind of a sprawling older downtown area.

I spent a bit walking around but couldn’t see taking a ... read more
