  • Me and my family decided to just take a walk and have a snack. Calm friendly place to shop! I love that they have a good court and have variety.  more »
  • Well equipped outlet mall. Plenty to choose from. Good specials- we visited this mall at least 3 times in 7 days.  more »
  • Super convenient as it's right off I-5 & Palomar Airport Road. Kids love to eat at Blaze Pizza, Rubios & Wetzel Pretzels. Plus, Starbucks for mom & dad...all at the south end of the "mall". Some store...  more »

  • We visited on the evening of Thanksgiving on our way back from visiting friends for Thanksgiving dinner. We thought of just driving past but couldn't resist stopping after learning about several sales. So we pulled in and the place was packed! We had to wait for people to leave and follows them to get parking. The sales were phenomenal! Many stores had 50% off and we took advantage of the sales. Clark's are one of our favorite shoe stores and we ended up buying 5 pairs of shoes - all 50% off! Major score there! We also were able to take care of some Christmas shopping. Great deals, convenient location that easily accessible from the freeway, and a clean and safe shopping center. Plus awesome sales frequently throughout the year. This place is one of our favorite shopping centers.
  • I love shopping here! My favorite shops are Le Creuset, COACH and Calvin Klein. It is an Open Air Outlet Mall (not to be confused with a Strip Mall) located just off of the I-5 San Diego Freeway. It has sidewalks and plazas as well as sit down dining. They provide ample parking; however, the stalls are very narrow, during the holidays you will find it challenging to find a place to park, Valet Parking is available, and there is more than what ADA requires the facility to provide as it relates to Disabled/Handicap parking (which is a HUGE +). The restrooms are always clean (there are 3 locations) they have several stalls to choose from, including Handicap/Disabled stalls, and there are changing tables for babies. There are Electric Vehicle charging stations on the East side of the mall. They have a Nursing Mother's Lounge. Security. Stroller rental. ATM Machines. Complimentary Wheelchairs. And the evenings and early mornings are less crowded
  • Bestest one stop shopping. Prices vary depending on what you are looking for but for the most part reasonable. Clean restrooms, Great atmosphere. Out of all the outdoor malls I've been too, Carlsbad Premium Outlets is by far the prettiest. People ate not rude.
  • A decent size outlet mall that has all the brand my family needs. We went there 12/30/17 at 6pm. Wasn't too crowded making shopping a breeze. Most stores have good enough space to maneuver strollers and few are quite a challenge.
  • It's a nice outdoor mall. Fun to walk around decent choice if stores. I don't feel like it's a true outlet experience considering the prices and amount of stores.

Where to stay in Carlsbad

Accommodations in Carlsbad run the gamut from quaint bed and breakfasts to five-star luxury resorts. You can stay in the heart of the action by booking a room downtown, where you'll be near the beach and have access to the city's most popular bars and restaurants.
