Carlsbad Forum: Fine Shopping in Carlsbad

Share

When Carlsbad real estate clients ask where to find good shopping in the Carlsbad, I offer one of two answers: If they are local, all I have to say is, “The Carlsbad Forum,“and most will know what I mean.

On the other hand,  if they are from out of town, the directions to the Carlsbad Forum sound like a field trip:

….As you approach from the freeway, you will note the ocean to your west. Exit Leucadia Boulevard and you will pass Encinitas Ranch Golf Course on your left and at the bottom of the hill at the light, you will turn left on Garden View and will see Home Expo on the right.

 Immediately after passing Home Expo, turn into The Carlsbad Forum on your right. Depending on the season and day of the week, you should be able to find a convenient parking place. Local residents are delighted to have so many of the shops, restaurants and stores situated there.

. Jimbo’s Market is an absolute favorite. Their produce and foods are organic, and their deli offers delicious alternatives to other carryouts.

.In the mood for Italian or Southwestern cuisine? Buca di Beppo offers casual family Italian; and The Yellow Coyote serves well-seasoned Southwestern fare. Want sandwiches, salad or soup? Panera Bread offers tasty selections for all three, along with outdoor seating.

.Shopping for clothes? At The Forum, you will find Chico’s, Talbots, Anthropologie, Victoria’s Secret, Draper & Damons, Jos A Bank, and other small and upscale boutiques.

.For the home? Shoppers love Z Galleries and Sur la Table, as well as design and flooring companies.

.For the body? There’s the Bali Salon and Spa, a med spa, slow exercise facility and shoe stores that cater to the athlete.

The Carlsbad Forum is a favorite with Carlsbad and North San Diego County residents–and has become a travel stop for many visitors to the area.
