Carlsbad is known as the Flower Capital of the U.S. for its Giant Tecolote Ranunculus fields, which pop into stunning bloom in March, but that’s just the beginning of what this town has to offer. An affluent beach village with a beautiful coastline, the town is also a hot spot for foodies, families, and surfers. Its most notable surf beach is Tamarack Surf Beach, while South Carlsbad State Beach offers a quieter and secluded feel. 

If you’re traveling with kids, make sure to visit Legoland for rides and games, as well as a stop at Leo Carrillo Ranch Historic Park, which houses gorgeous free-roaming peacocks. Laze the day away at the beach, grab lunch at a taco stand, tour the Sea Life Aquarium, and visit the village flea market. All the fun awaits with Carlsbad beach rentals.
