Stretching along 11 km (7 mi) of Pacific coastline, the city of Carlsbad attracts visitors with its Mediterranean climate and natural beauty.
Kids will appreciate attractions like LEGOLAND California and San Diego Zoo Safari Park. Change things up with a short trip to Dolphin & Whale Watching in Dana Point (about 36 minutes away). There's lots more to do: enjoy the sand and surf at South Carlsbad State Beach, observe the fascinating underwater world at Sea Life Aquarium, admire the natural beauty at The Flower Fields at Carlsbad RanchR, and take a stroll through Carlsbad Village.

For other places to visit, reviews, maps, and tourist information, refer to the Carlsbad trip planner .

In May, daytime highs in Carlsbad are 72°F, while nighttime lows are 56°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 16th (Thu) early enough to travel back home.
