A Local's Guide to Carlsbad

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.

In Carlsbad village itself, there are many vacation rentals, all of which allow you to be in the center of it all. Some even have a private pool or hot tub, so you can enjoy your stay with a little bit of luxury. Shops, restaurants and many other services are all in walking distance, making for the perfect Carlsbad vacation.

While exploring the town, pop into some of the Carlsbad premium outlets or venture into a tasting shop to sample some of San Diego County’s delicious beverages.

A famous landmark in town is the Alt Karlsbad Hanse House, on Carlsbad Boulevard. This is the site of the first mineral spa in the village, with roots back to the 1880’s. 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. It also the hosts innovative exhibitions and educational programs throughout the year. The Leo Carrillo Ranch Historic Park makes a great day trip from your vacation home. The park sits in a 27-acre canyon, and is a former working ranch owned by actor Leo Carrillo. Spend a day admiring the reflecting pool, historic buildings, adobe buildings and old windmills.
