Carlsbad New Mexico is a very popular destination among travelers who love to explore, like adventures, and seeing unique places. Carlsbad was founded in the late 1880s after European settlers discovered the minerals waters here and realized the benefits of them. It's also named after one famous Czech spa town which has the same name. There are many points of interests, landmarks, national parks, and things to do in the city, all making it a popular location for families and friends. Visitors flock here all year round and so there is a constant buzz of activity and celebration in the air.
Carlsbad is an amazing place to visit with many fun activities to enjoy. The top things to do include in Carlsbad include the Sitting Bulls Falls which is a gorgeous waterfall where outdoor enthusiasts can hike to the top of the falls for a breathtaking view. Elsewhere, the Carlsbad Caves are a must-see while in the city; the natural formations are spectacular and take around four hours to explore, so come prepared to spend the day here. For something special, take the Left Hand Tour, which is a guided tour by lantern light, and see the caves a new eerie light. If you're interested in the bats that live in the caves and surrounding area, check out the Bat Flight Program in the national park. Guides explain the bats' behavior and habitat and how hundreds of thousands bats exit the caves to migrate to Mexico.
For great wildlife and a state park experience, the Living Desert Zoo and Garden State Park is the spot to see a variety of animal species strolling around. There are also great recreational areas for a relaxing day out with the family, such as Lake Carlsbad and Brantley Lake State Park.
