Carlsbad is a town in California's San Diego County, with a relaxed oceanfront atmosphere. With some great beaches, golf courses, restaurants and tourist attractions, it is a perfect destination for a family holiday - whether you are planning to just laze on the beach or explore California. And with some amazing deals on apartment rentals in and around the town, you would be surprised at how low cost a trip to Carlsbad can be!
There is a great deal to do in Carlsbad - easily enough to fill a week's family holiday. Quite apart from the beaches themselves (Carlsbad State Beach is probably the most well maintained and pleasant) where you'll want to spend at least a few days sunbathing and indulging in watersports, including some great surfing opportunities, the town has some fantastic shops and a huge number of restaurants to sample - particularly Mexican food, as in much of this part of California. Children of all ages will also insist on a visit to Legoland California, the only Lego theme park in America and well worth taking a day out of the schedule to see the various Lego sculptures and be scared witless on the rides. And if you're visiting between March and May, the fields of Giant Tecolote Ranunculus at Flower Fields are also well worth exploring.
With a wide variety of condo and apartment rentals in and around Carlsbad, there are some great deals to be found, and you should be able to find self catered accommodation to suit every budget. An apartment large enough to accommodate a family of four or more can be rented from around £430 a week, which is certainly low cost compared to the expense of booking hotel rooms for the whole family. And with many of the properties boasting incredible views over the ocean, booking apartment rentals will certainly not feel like a money saving option! The extra privacy and space means that rental homes are also great for kids - the youngest members of the family can run around and let off steam without you having to worry about them disturbing the neighbours!
