Carlsbad Village

Carlsbad, CA 92008 (2.4 miles)

Also known as "The Village by the Sea," Carlsbad blends the quaint charm of a European town with the cosmopolitan energy of a large city. As you explore avenues teeming with antique stores, boutiques, and breezy cafés, you'll soon discover much more, including 7 miles of coastline, choice dining options and world-class shopping.

With 3,055 hours of sunshine per year, each season in Carlsbad brings a range of vibrant events and activities, from street fairs to art walks. Steps away sit clean, uncrowded beaches for swimming, sunbathing and surfing as well as 3 beautiful lagoons for fishing, bird-watching and 47 miles worth of trails for nature hikes. Venture further to discover the unique destinations of LEGOLAND® California and SEA LIFE Aquarium or the nearby attractions of San Diego, Orange County and Los Angeles.

No matter what you choose to see and experience, Carlsbad delivers unique experiences and memories to last a lifetime.

Encinitas & Leucadia

Encinitas, CA 92024 (6.3 miles)

Located in northern San Diego County, this beachside town brings several distinct communities into one incorporated city. Leucadia, the beach district, is both exclusive and funky. From the ten-million-dollar homes dotting the crumbling beachfront cliffs to dilapidated trailer parks less than a block inland, Leucadia is a study in contrasts. Two of the beaches (Swamis) sung about by the Beach Boys in 'Surfing USA' are located within Encinitas’s 5-mile stretch of coastline.

Oceanside

Oceanside, CA 92056 (6.3 miles)

If you’re on the hunt for pristine beaches with smaller crowds, visit Oceanside. Offering hassle-free access to the beaches, fewer parking headaches, lively boardwalks and a pier, Oceanside is the quintessential Southern California beach experience. It’s one of those towns you can hit on a lunch break for a quick jog, or idle a long summer day away in the sun. There are plenty of family-friendly restaurants in the area (most notably, Ruby's Diner on the end of the pier and the fish & chips seafood joints in the Harbor) and fun '50s style motor lodges (some with pirates and other themes).

San Marcos

San Marcos, CA 92096 (16.5 miles)

San Marcos is nestled in the scenic foothills of northern San Diego County. From miles of trails in the surrounding hills to upscale attractions in town, San Marcos has all of the ingredients of a Southern California vacation spot. With entertainment destinations like Creekside Marketplace, Nordahl Center, Grand Plaza and Old California Restaurant Row, San Marcos is popular for its splendid shopping and dining. When it comes to culture, community theater, music and fine arts are thriving in San Marcos. The City’s very own “Theatre West” group presents outstanding community theatre production, while the California Center for the Arts in Escondido and the Performing Arts Center at Palomar College feature world-class live performances.

Solana Beach

Solana Beach, CA  92075 (11.7 miles)

The charming seaside community of Solana Beach overlooks the northern coast of San Diego County and is a favorite destination for vacationers looking to enjoy its beach, eclectic shops, fabulous dining, golfing, nightlife, and nearby hiking. The City is home to a vibrant train station that serves both Amtrak and the Coaster, one of only three in San Diego County. Solana Beach features temperatures that average 62 degrees in the winter and 77 degrees in the summer, making it perfect for swimming, sunning and surfing along its nearly two miles of coastline.

La Jolla

La Jolla, CA 92037 (24.4 miles)

La Jolla is an exclusive seaside community located on seven miles of coastline along the Pacific Ocean. With breathtaking beaches and ocean bluffs on three sides and backed by steep canyons and hillsides ending at Mount Soledad, La Jolla is best known for its fantastic weather year round - with an average daily temperature of 70.5 °F. La Jolla is also celebrated for its excellent shopping and dining, with upscale boutiques and shops, and restaurants.

The area boasts one of the most vibrant artistic communities in Southern California, with a diverse variety of art, music and cultural events held throughout the year. LaJolla’s most popular annual events include the La Jolla Festival of the Arts, La Jolla Gallery Wine Walk & Taste, and La Jolla Art & Wine Festival.

Outdoor activities include swimming, surfing, snorkeling, hiking, and kayaking. Opportunities to interact with wildlife abound all over La Jolla - dolphins are frequently spotted near the shore, and harbor seals and sea lions can be found lounging throughout the coastal area, including at the Children’s Pool.
