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: Escondido (Stone Brewing & San Diego Zoo Safari Park) and Dolphin & Whale Watching (in Dana Point). There's much more to do: find something for the whole family at LEGOLAND California, take in nature's colorful creations at Self Realization Fellowship Hermitage & Meditation Gardens, enjoy the sand and surf at South Carlsbad State Beach, and take a stroll through Carlsbad Village.

To find more things to do, other places to visit, reviews, and more tourist information, you can read our Carlsbad route planner.

In May, daily temperatures in Carlsbad can reach 72°F, while at night they dip to 56°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 19th (Sun) to allow enough time to travel back home.
