Carlsbad was recently picked as the Number One most scenic city in the American Southwest by the travel website Expedia. Our closest competitors were Las Vegas, Nevada, followed by Denver and Colorado Springs. This designation was an honor, and is a responsibility we take very seriously. We’re fortunate to be next to two national parks and two state parks, and we want to do our best to meet our end of the bargain. That’s why you are seeing median improvement around town, and why we focus very hard on our beautification and anti-litter efforts. Recent projects at the Halagueno Arts Park and the Upper Beach area have also showed our community’s commitment to beautification and anti-litter efforts, both for our guests and our residents. Most of these efforts are community partnerships with outstanding companies.
