Carlsbad is about 40 minutes north of the San Diego International Airport, and roughly the same distance from Downtown San Diego. Here, you’re not far from exciting attractions like the Half-Day San Diego City Sightseeing Tour.
For more to do in Carlsbad, musicians may enjoy the Museum of Making Music. This attraction and many more of San Diego’s most popular attractions such as the San Diego Zoo and SeaWorld San Diego are all part of the Go San Diego Pass, which lets you save on your trip when you bundle multiple activities and gear rentals together.
Surfboards, paddle boards, kayaks, bikes and more are all available for rentals through the Go Pass. You can also get an additional discount when you use our link.
If you’re looking to stay nearby, there are plenty of great hotels. Consider booking a night at the Ocean Palms Beach Resort, which is a family-friendly boutique hotel just a few minutes from the beach. If you’re craving a luxury treatment, try the Cape Rey Carlsbad Beach, a Hilton Resort & Spa, which has an oversized pool and its own day spa with massages and steam rooms.
