Spend time in this beautiful North County coastal city, home to Legoland, a popular state beach, oceanfront boardwalk and an eclectic downtown scene. Steps away, stroll into Village Faire Restaurants & Shops for a unique gift — Sock District is a favorite — or break bread at Gregorio's Italian Restaurant. Two blocks away, grab a bite a Prontos Gourmet Market, a popular family-owned deli and neighborhood market. A few miles south on Tamarack Avenue, enjoy a slice of heaven from Leucadia Pizza Kitchen. Also explore the Forum, an upscale outdoor shopping center, where patrons of Diane Powers’ Mexican restaurant Casa de Bandini can be found enjoying specialty margaritas and south-of-the-border flavors. Catch a concert at the Museum of Making Music, Carlsbad’s popular entertainment venue, or a flight into the area via Carlsbad's own McClellan-Palomar Airport, serving the North San Diego region. Visiting from out of town or treating family or friends to some coastal fun? Take the scenic north-south COASTER commuter train, serving eight stations between Oceanside and downtown San Diego (including two stops in Carlsbad), or the east-west SPRINTER hybrid rail, connecting Oceanside, Vista, San Marcos, and Escondido, serving 15 stations along the Highway 78 corridor.
