With a thriving local economy, a beautiful natural setting, and a community focus, Carlsbad, New Mexico remains a desirable destination

Located in New Mexico’s Chihuahuan Desert region, Carlsbad is a rapidly-growing, vibrant city surrounded by quality-of-life opportunities both in work and play. In addition to the area’s rich history of oil and gas production, vital industries such as manufacturing, agriculture, nuclear and tourism also play a role in Carlsbad’s thriving economy. With proximity to natural wonders, the community is a popular destination for outdoor enthusiasts, while the many opportunities to enjoy arts, entertainment, and cultural experiences are enjoyed by residents and tourists alike.

Mayor Dale Janway describes the city as a gateway to both Carlsbad Caverns National Park and Guadalupe Mountains National Park, while not undermining the beautiful recreational offerings within Carlsbad itself.
