Carlsbad, California

My Experience:

We tend to think of communities along the Pacific Ocean as only summer getaways. In reality that is far from truth and a perfect example is Carlsbad, California.

Offering over seven miles of cliffs, beaches and coastline, this “Village by the sea”, is a wonderful year round getaway, and only 35 minutes from down town San Diego.

This was my second stay at the WestInn and Suites, my go to Carlsbad stay because of proximity to town, beaches, golf courses, flower fields, shopping, and museums. You’ll love their spacious rooms, multitude of amenities, fabulous restaurants and they love your pets as if they were family.

Besides Legoland, don’t miss the Museum of Making Music and the Gemological Institute of America. Both are fascinating, family friendly, and right next to each other.

For RV’ers, you’ll find sites right along the cliffs, and there are also campgrounds nearby. These spots fill up fast, so try and reserve early.

Take advantage of off season prices and the year round perfect weather…..I’ll see you in Carlsbad, CA.
