    This small aquarium is good as a Legoland interruption. It was lightly attended when we went and took less than an hour to work our way through all of the exhibits. The kids liked the hands-on exhibit...  more »

    This place was more entertaining to our 2 yr old than Legoland was. It was a nice experience. It's educational and she loves all the fish, sharks, jellyfish etc. We got it done in about an hour but it's great. The only down side was no strollers.

    Loved this educational sea life aquarium. Beautifully created for young and old. Perfect for very young children as well. 💦🐚🐙🦑🦀🐟🐠🐬🦈🐋🐳

    Definitely a cool aquarium for adults and/or kids. Don't like $17 parking but it's not a bad way to kill an hour. Good date idea

    Fun for kids that love ocean life, Tons of cool sea animals and activities for kids. My two year old was super entertaining.

    Probably one of the best aquariums I've been to in a long time. Activities for the kids, lots of interactive displays, well laid out, great staff... Admission was free with our Legoland tickets. Takes about an hour to get through, so not really a "full day" kind of trip, but a great side activity if you're visiting the park.

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.
