Carlsbad

Stretching along 11 km (7 mi) of Pacific coastline, the city of Carlsbad attracts visitors with its Mediterranean climate and natural beauty.
Get out of town with these interesting Carlsbad side-trips: San Diego Zoo Safari Park (in Escondido), Dolphin & Whale Watching (in Dana Point) and Pamo Valley Winery (in Ramona). And it doesn't end there: get in on the family fun at LEGOLAND California, wander the streets of Carlsbad Village, take in the waterfront at Oceanside Pier, and admire the natural beauty at Self Realization Fellowship Hermitage & Meditation Gardens.

To see more things to do, ratings, reviews, and more tourist information, you can read our Carlsbad route planning site .

In July, plan for daily highs up to 78°F, and evening lows to 64°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 8th (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
