Kid Friendly Hotels in Carlsbad

A village by the sea, a place where families can spend quality time together in a friendly, safe environment and perfect weather: in Carlsbad, Calif., this type of family vacation becomes a reality. Families should head to Legoland, which has fifty rides, a water splash area and Mini Land, where kids can marvel at detailed Lego models. Families can learn about and view various gems at the Gemological Institute of America. Adventurous families can take a journey through the Sea Life Aquarium and learn about various ocean habitats, visit a “touch pool,” where children can physically interact with sea life and see sharks, stingrays and other tropical marine life. A day at Carlsbad Lagoon or Carlsbad State Beach allows families to frolic in the waves. Various water activities such as surfing and boating are available. There are also many parks in Carlsbad, such as Poinsettia Park and Magee Park. Most parks in the city have horseshoe pits and picnic areas.
