 LEGOLAND California

1 Legoland Dr, Carlsbad, CA 92008

Have you tried building a tower or perhaps a train using blocks of red, blue, yellow, orange, white and more? Yes, we are talking about those Legos that you used. You could have been 5, 8 or even as young as 3 or as old as 15 and yet you are still playing with them. Who can resist the urge of combining all those colors and create anything using your imagination? If you are one of those who is still young at heart, LEGOLAND California is the place to be!

What to expect? Of course; Legos, Legos, LEGOS, everywhere!

You can find wonders in their attractions, be a kid in a candy store or the Star Wars geek that you are.  You can even bring those mini figures that you don’t like and you can exchange them with any employees in the park if you ask them nicely.

To top it all, food options are found to be a lot healthier than other amusement park offerings. If you happen to be around Carlsbad, this is one place that you should not miss.

As for how Carlsbad is known to be the village by the sea, they also say that your trip here won’t be complete if you aren't able to see and visit its lagoons.

Aqua Hedionda Lagoon is said to be the top destination for those looking for relaxation and calm with a bit of extreme.  The activities that you can enjoy with families and friends and even solo if that's how you prefer include boating, water skiing, personal watercraft use, sailing and wakeboarding, and windsurfing.  They even allow fishing.

La Costa Resort and Spa

2100 Costa Del Mar Rd, Carlsbad, CA 92009, United States

The most critical part of your trip is to look for a place to breeze in as you enjoy the city and a place to succumb when you're done wandering around, and we say, La Costa Resort and Spa is the best pick.

Accommodating is a euphemism; heartening is a more suitable term to describe how they welcome and attend to their guests. They have been highly rated as a resort with excellent  personal service that you can look forward to. There's the family pool with amazing water slides and a bar for the adults. They have a kid's club (childcare) for an additional cost.
