Carlsbad, California

Carlsbad is a beautiful, idyllic seaside town just north of San Diego that’s known for beautiful weather, fantastic beaches, and great surf spots. You won’t want to forget your swimsuit, no matter the time of year! The Carlsbad Caverns offer another otherworldly opportunity to explore.

The town itself is very walkable and features a laid-back, California cool atmosphere. Whether you’re looking to pick up a famous Cali burrito, or you’d like some fine dining on fresh-caught seafood, there’s something for everyone. We recommend hitting Swami’s Cafe for an excellent brunch, California-Style; their food is made with fresh, local ingredients and is healthy and delicious.

Visit the nearby flower fields for a beautiful and Instagram-worthy explosion of color! Afterwards, the Carlsbad Outlets offer premium shopping nearby.
