Although the first official day of summer is this Saturday, it’s already feeling like the sunniest time of the year! I’m getting my summer plans in check by making sure to include all the activities that my beautiful city of Carlsbad has to offer. If you’re from out of town, there are some great deals for accommodations at some of my favorite places to stay in Carlsbad.
A Day on the Green
Love to hit the green? Treat yourself with a golf lesson from the Aviara Golf Club at Park Hyatt Aviara Resort! Designed by Arnold Palmer, the resort’s golf course is adjacent to Batiquitos Lagoon and is challenging, yet carefully designed to help protect the ecological habitat. Take advantage of the Aviara Golf Club Package, which includes:
After an exhilarating day, head to The Argyle Steakhouse for some much-need fuel! With a breathtaking view of the 18th hole, The Argyle offers up an elegant, yet comfortable fine dining experience for anyone looking to relax.
Sun & Sand
Carlsbad offers up some of the best beach resorts in Southern California. One of my favorites is Carlsbad Inn Beach Resort, a boutique hotel with amazing views and beautiful, fully stocked rooms! Don’t forget to grab your swim trunks, bathing suits, and sand castle building tools! The resort is steps away from North Carlsbad Beach. Once you’ve mustered up an appetite, make sure to grab some grub at Las Olas Restaurant, one of my favorite Mexican restaurants in the area. Make sure to try out their carnitas tacos!
Make a Splash
More of a pool-loving family? No problem! The Omni La Costa Resort & Spa is offering a Splash & Stay package that includes:
Adventures in Nature
For the more adventurous, I recommend the Safari Package at Sheraton Carlsbad. With over 2,600 wild and endangered animals from around the globe, the San Diego Zoo’s Safari Park is ideal for families large and small who are ready to explore and learn about animal conservation! This exclusive package features:
Or stop by the Agua Hedionda Lagoon & Discovery Center to get a hands-on experience exploring the lagoon habitat. The facility also features boating, skiing, wake boarding, sailing, wind surfing, and fishing! Round out the day with a satisfying bite at Twenty/20 Grill & Wine Bar. You can’t beat the view of the Pacific coastline.
Whatever you do this summer, make sure to make a stop by my beautiful city!
