Carlsbad

Stretching along 11 km (7 mi) of Pacific coastline, the city of Carlsbad attracts visitors with its Mediterranean climate and natural beauty.
Kids will enjoy LEGOLAND California and San Diego Zoo Safari Park. Change things up with these side-trips from Carlsbad: Dolphin & Whale Watching (in Dana Point), ClueHoo (in Laguna Beach) and BK Cellars Urban Winery & Tasting Lounge (in Escondido). There's much more to do: kick back and relax at South Carlsbad State Beach, take in the awesome beauty at Mount San Jacinto State Park and Wilderness, take a leisurely stroll along Oceanside Pier, and admire the natural beauty at Self Realization Fellowship Hermitage & Meditation Gardens.

For more things to do, reviews, and tourist information, you can read our Carlsbad road trip planning app .

In July, daily temperatures in Carlsbad can reach 78°F, while at night they dip to 64°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 26th (Fri) so you can travel back home.
