With year-round perfect weather, Carlsbad is the ideal coastal Californian city vacation spot. Offering a plethora of fun attractions, such as Legoland California and the Sea Life Aquarium, as well as a prime beachfront location with stunning ocean views, it is no wonder that the city sees visitors throughout the year. The small community is situated about halfway between San Diego and Los Angeles which makes traveling to Carlsbad easy.

Fun for all ages, Legoland is Carlsbad’s best loved attraction. Just half an hour north of San Diego, this is a theme park with a difference. With over 60 rides and interactive exhibits, it will keep you entertained all day. The Sea Life Aquarium and water park is also a fun-filled day out, especially when the summer temperatures reach their peak. The park is full of slides and themed pools, some of the most popular being the amazing Lion Temple Wave Pool, the Build-a-Boat section, two individual beaches, and various shows.

One of the biggest draws to the town is its seven miles of pure white sand scattered with vacation rentals. South Carlsbad State Beach is one of the most stunning stretches of coastland in the west, and offers a range of outdoor activities. The water tends to be warm, therefore in the summer months the sea is full of people enjoying snorkeling, surfing, scuba diving and swimming at the beach.

Elsewhere, the La Costa area of Carlsbad is one of the better-known residential areas, and it is here that you can find the perfect house rental or beach house.

The Museum of Making Music is well worth a visit, a venue dedicated to showcasing some of the best music products in the industry.
