With its central location between two of Southern California’s biggest attractions, Carlsbad is an easy addition to a family or romantic vacation. It should at least be part of your Southern California vacation itinerary, but Carlsbad has enough draw to make it a stand alone vacation destination. Check out our Carlsbad overview to decide how much time you’d like to spend here.
With almost seven miles of stunning beaches, picturesque lagoons and its famous seasonal flower fields, Carlsbad is a sight to behold. You’ll want to plan at least a full day of beach hopping. All of our Carlsbad hotels are just minutes from Carlsbad’s family beaches, and some even offer free beach shuttle service so you don’t even have to think about parking. If you’re traveling during the early spring, you’ll get the pleasure of seeing Carlsbad’s flower fields in full bloom.
If its natural beauty isn’t enough of a draw, Carlsbad also offers world class golf courses, spas and shopping. The Crossings at Carlsbad is one of the most gorgeous public golf courses in San Diego County. The Omni La Costa Spa is one of the most recognized spas local to Carlsbad. Deal hunters will want to schedule at least one full day at the Carlsbad Premium Outlets. Nearly 100 shops and restaurants will keep you going all day long. You’ll find deals on the latest fashions and can grab a bite at one of their many dining locations.
Of course no Carlsbad overview can be complete without mentioning the LEGOLAND® California Resort. LEGOLAND® was created with children ages two to 12 in mind, but offers fun for the whole family. LEGOLAND® Park, the SEA LIFE Aquarium, LEGO® Water Park and the two LEGOLAND® themed hotels make Carlsbad a landmark for families.
