Carlsbad is a fun little area North of San Diego that I highly recommend you check out when you're in the area. Check out the Carlsbad Village for a some fun local shops and great food! After your shopping day, take a trip down to the beach and watch the sunset. It's the perfect way to spend your day if you ask me!
