Stretching along 11 km (7 mi) of Pacific coastline, the city of Carlsbad attracts visitors with its Mediterranean climate and natural beauty.
Change things up with these side-trips from Carlsbad: Dolphin & Whale Watching (in Dana Point), Escondido (Stone Brewing & San Diego Zoo Safari Park) and Indian Canyons (in Palm Springs). There's lots more to do: get in on the family fun at LEGOLAND California, stop by Temecula Olive Oil Company, awaken your taste buds at some of the top wineries in the area, and take a leisurely stroll along Oceanside Pier.

To see where to stay, reviews, photos, and other tourist information, refer to the Carlsbad holiday planning app .

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. In April, plan for daily highs up to 26°C, and evening lows to 11°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 17th (Wed) early enough to drive back home.
