Almost 200 years after the founding of Rancho San Pedro, 142 years after the Dominguez Adobe was built, and 58 years after the Great Air Meet of 1910, the citizens of Carson finally took steps towards incorporation. The town was incorporated on Tuesday, February 6, 1968. This incorporation made Carson the 8th largest city in Greater Los Angeles.

Carson is part of the Los Angeles-Long Beach, California metro area.
