Stretching along 11 km (7 mi) of Pacific coastline, the city of Carlsbad attracts visitors with its Mediterranean climate and natural beauty.
Visit Mt. Soledad National Veterans Memorial and Oceanside Pier for their historical value. Get out of town with these interesting Carlsbad side-trips: Dolphin & Whale Watching (in Dana Point), Old Town Temecula (in Temecula) and La Jolla (La Jolla Cove, Birch Aquarium at Scripps Institution of Oceanography, & more). Next up on the itinerary: get in on the family fun at LEGOLAND California, take a stroll through Carlsbad Village, stroll through The Living Desert Zoo and Gardens, and enjoy the sand and surf at South Carlsbad State Beach.
