Carlsbad was settled due to its freshwater creek. In the 1880s a sailor dug a well in the area and began offering fresh water at the train station. After finding that the properties of this water were similar to that of well-renowned spa towns, the Carlsbad Land and Mineral Water Company was founded and the town soon developed as a way of marketing the spa waters and attract visitors to the area. Agriculture soon increased in the surrounding landscape and trade began to flourish with the export of citrus fruits, avocados, and olives. During the 20th Century, the city built the first modern skate park and LEGOLAND California was opened, as a result, the population of Carlsbad grew extensively and the city thrived.

Carlsbad’s main industries are technology and software development including manufacturing and robotics. Google named Carlsbad the digital capital of California in 2013 and the city has a strong online business community.
