Established, Gated 55+ Community of Rancho Carlsbad Boasts Manufactured Homes, a Dog Park, Two Clubhouses, RV Storage, Golf Discounts and More
Built in 1972, the gated 55+ manufactured home community of Rancho Carlsbad sits at the edge of Carlsbad, California. It is located on 105 acres of lush landscaping, with the Pacific Coast beaches and marinas minutes away. Residents can find themselves in San Diego in less than an hour.
The development's 504 sites are scattered along green spaces that are dotted with ponds and mature trees. The manufactured homes range from about 1,344 square feet to 1,680 square feet, and most models have a carport or a garage. All have an open floor plan with two to three bedrooms and two baths.
New and resale homes begin in the mid- to high-$300,000s. Please verify this with a Realtor as prices may change. Prices are high for manufactured homes thanks to the community being in Carlsbad, an affluent seaside resort.
Staff includes a 24/7 courtesy patrol and a full-time activities director. The 12,500 square-foot Spanish hacienda-style recreation center has an exercise room, an arts studio, a swimming pool, a Jacuzzi, a sauna and enclosed shuffleboard courts. The larger clubhouse has a BBQ area, a ballroom, a billiard room, a fireplace, and a tower library.
Individual garden plots are available, too. A fenced dog park, laundry facilities, and RV storage round out the amenities. Residents also enjoy discounts at the next door Rancho Carlsbad Golf Club.
Three miles north of the community are the specialty shops of Plaza Camino Real. Carlsbad has two protected state beaches and three lagoons. Both Batiquitos and Buena Vista have nature centers. The city features 50 miles of trails, the Alga Norte Aquatics Center, and the Museum of Making Music.
Scripps Coastal Medical Center Carlsbad provides primary care, but the nearest hospital, Tri-City Medical, is about three miles away in Oceanside. It is accredited by the Joint Commission.
Year round temperatures are in the 60s and 70s, sometimes dipping into the 40s at night. On average, the area receives 10 inches of rain per year.

California is the most populous state in the United States, and it is the sixth largest economy in the world.
Because it is so long, the climate varies greatly. Everything from deserts, forests and snow covered mountains to the world famous moderate temperatures of Southern California are here. Record temperatures have included a low of minus 35 degrees and a high of 134 degrees.
Missions placed within a day's walk from one another dot the length of the state and started appearing in 1769. Juan Cabrillo first sighted California in 1542 and inspired the missions. A few of the most famous ones are San Juan Capistrano (the swallows return every year at the same time), and San Diego (the first one).
A few of California's natural resources include petroleum, timber and natural gas. Industries are manufacturing (machinery, transportation equipment, electronics), aerospace and defense, biotechnology, and tourism. Of course, Hollywood and Disneyland are known around the world. Other famous attractions are Yosemite National Park, the Golden Gate Bridge (San Francisco), Point Reyes National Seashore, Sequoia National Park and San Simeon State Park (Hearst Castle).
The lowest point in the U.S. is California's Death Valley at 282 feet below sea level, and the highest point in the Lower 48 is its Mt. Whitney at 14,491 feet above sea level. Outside of Hawaii and Alaska, the state's Lassen Peak is one of the two active volcanoes in the U.S. It last erupted in 1917.
More immigrants settle down in California than in any other state.

Which States Have the Most 55+ Communities?
More and more 55+ communities are popping up as baby boomers retire, but Florida is still king when it comes to retirement communities. Arizona runs a close second, and other southern and western states, including Georgia, Texas and the Carolinas, are gaining ground. Developers are discovering a huge market in retiring baby boomers, and they plan to keep building retirement communities, many of which are really mini-resorts.
