Stretching along 11 km (7 mi) of Pacific coastline, the city of Carlsbad attracts visitors with its Mediterranean climate and natural beauty.
Visit Moonlight State Beach and Del Mar City Beach for some beach relaxation. Shop till you drop at Ricardo Breceda Gallery & Sculpture Garden and Art Beat on Main Street. Venture out of the city with trips to Temecula (Leoness Cellars, Wiens Family Cellars - Winery, & more). There's still lots to do: see the interesting displays at Mission San Luis Rey.

To find reviews, other places to visit, where to stay, and more tourist information, read our Carlsbad route builder website .

If you are flying in from Canada, the closest major airports are San Diego International Airport, John Wayne Airport-Orange County Airport and Ontario International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 26°C in May, and nighttime lows around 15°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 16th (Thu) to allow time to travel back home.
