Aviara Neighborhood Guide

Aviara is a small, affluent resort community in the southern part of Carlsbad, about 35 miles north of San Diego. It was planned out and built in the 1980s, and today it zealously guards the purity of the original vision. The community council has strict ordinances regarding the upkeep and style of the houses, down to what paint colors can be used. If you want to renovate or build an addition you must submit a proposal and undergo a lengthy approval process. Residents feel that this helps maintain their quality of life in this Southern California paradise.

If you like to golf you’ll love this neighborhood. The Aviara Golf Club, located in the Park Hyatt Aviara Resort, was designed by Arnold Palmer and is widely considered one of the best golf courses in the country. Aviara is a mostly residential neighborhood, except for the hotel, which has several fine restaurants. You can easily drive to shopping and entertainment venues nearby − Encinitas is to the south and La Costa is to the east. If you want to go visit the city you can take Interstate 5 down to San Diego.
