ACTIVITIES IN CARLSBAD
Home to an extensive trail system that ranges from leisurely to strenuous, you’ll find open hills, covered paths, expansive beaches and quiet lagoons that welcome you to savor the mild, ocean air.
No matter what activity you enjoy, you’ll find a beach that’s perfect for it. Hiking, biking, diving, surfing, birdwatching, rock hunting and more. Or maybe just quiet stroll where stress rolls off your shoulders like the waves roll upon the shore.
From beaches and theaters to fine dining and taco shops, Carlsbad Village is your North County destination of choice. Nestled on the costal shores of Carlsbad, you will find plenty to do, see and experience.
