Carlsbad right now is going through a historic oil boom. The good ? If you cannot find a job, you are not really trying. The job market is so tight that even low skill jobs can get some pretty good wages. Carlsbad Caverns is nearby and definitely worth seeing. The bad ? The town has tripled in size, and it is VERY hard to find a place to live. Rents are ridiculusly high ( $ 1400 a month for a 600 square foot apartment ), and the local motels/hotels gouge the public with New York City rates ( $400 A NIGHT in a three star motel ! ). There are numerous " man camps" throughout the city, which are trailers apon trailers streching the city's water resources to the breaking point. With the high wages,the cost of food/ basic services have gone through the roof. The locals are up in arms about this, and are resentful towards the oilfield people. The weather is decent if you like blowing dust in the Spring & 100 degree's plus temperatures from late Spring & throughout the summer going to the beginning of Fall. Noticedthat area vibes says Carlsbad averages 84 degrees- My ass !!!Oh, and did I mention that Carlsbad is floating in meth ? It would be prudent to invest in home alarm systems. The thieves have brass balls here. Cars' boats, and RV's have been known to vanish out of people's yards in broad daylight. If you desperately need a job & go to Carlsbad,be prepared to live in your car/trailer for awhile.
