Carlsbad

Stretching along 11 km (7 mi) of Pacific coastline, the city of Carlsbad attracts visitors with its Mediterranean climate and natural beauty.
Escape the urban bustle at Dolphin & Whale Watching and Batiquitos Lagoon. Your inner history buff will appreciate Oceanside Pier and Riverside National Cemetery. Venture out of the city with trips to San Diego Zoo Safari Park (in Escondido) and Mission Basilica San Juan Capistrano (in San Juan Capistrano). Next up on the itinerary: find something for the whole family at LEGOLAND California, contemplate the long history of Leo Carrillo Ranch Historic Park, kick back and relax at South Carlsbad State Beach, and take a stroll through Carlsbad Village.

To find more things to do, photos, where to stay, and more tourist information, you can read our Carlsbad online journey maker .

Expect a daytime high around 79°F in August, and nighttime lows around 65°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 30th (Fri) to allow enough time to travel back home.
