Stretching along 11 km (7 mi) of Pacific coastline, the city of Carlsbad attracts visitors with its Mediterranean climate and natural beauty.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Children's Discovery Museum and Santa Rosa Plateau Ecological. Attractions like LEGOLAND California and Dolphin & Whale Watching make great kid-friendly stops. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Carlsbad: Galleta Meadows (in Borrego Springs), San Diego Zoo Safari Park (in Escondido) and Del Mar City Beach (in Del Mar). There's still lots to do: cool off at Palm Desert Aquatic Center, kick back and relax at Harbor Beach, look for all kinds of wild species at Living Free Animal Sanctuary, and take a leisurely stroll along San Clemente Pier.

For ratings, where to stay, reviews, and more tourist information, you can read our Carlsbad attractions planner.

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 March in Carlsbad, expect temperatures between 24°C during the day and 10°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 4th (Thu) to allow time to travel back home.
