    I've never felt outlet stores offer any better deals than department stores. Especially in this modern age where everything is on sale, or it will be next week. Still, we enjoyed walking around and en...  more »

    Definitely the upscale Mall in the area. This place is nice and it's great to take your kids in the stroller or even your dogs if they're well-behaved. Don't be bringing your crazy mutts around. Have a bunch of different kind of restaurants ranging from snack foods to sit down meals. And all kinds of shops.

    Huge shopping area with a good selection of outlets. Also, surprisingly, very clean bathrooms! The area also sports some food outlets, which are nice for a little pick-me-up snack while binge-shopping. Do not forget to collect your coupon-book from Info Center before hitting the shops!

    Just bought a speaker at Bose and the guys working there were knowledgeable, I mean really knew their products, and courteous. I'm technologically challenged and they explained everything. I've been in many Bose Stores, this is the best.

    We enjoy walking the mall. There are always some great sales and discounts to be found. The whole mall is dog friendly so we usually bring our boxer. She comes with us into the stores and often gets treats from the sales people.

    Excellent place to spend some quality time. Very good shops. Great food options. Clean and family friendly.

Where to stay in Carlsbad

Accommodations in Carlsbad run the gamut from quaint bed and breakfasts to five-star luxury resorts. You can stay in the heart of the action by booking a room downtown, where you'll be near the beach and have access to the city's most popular bars and restaurants. If you've come to town to explore the area's renowned golf and tennis opportunities, look for resorts with excellent facilities in La Costa, a suburban residential neighborhood. If you seek a more rustic experience, take advantage of the city's mild weather and natural surroundings by camping on Carlsbad State Beach.
