A road trip is one of our favorite summer activities. It is excellent to spend our time in our vehicle, enjoying the open road and seeing all that California has to offer. Carlsbad is located within driving distance of many lovely places, so it was quite easy to put together a list of the top 5 best road trips from Carlsbad:
- Palm Springs: Looking to spend some quality time near the pool, basking in the warm California sun? Palms Springs is the destination for you. Many resorts in the region are even dog-friendly.
- Laguna Beach: There is so much more to love than just the beach here, including the quirky art scene, fun shopping places, and electric sunsets.
- Los Angeles: The City of Angels may seem like your typical go-to destination, but don’t let the commonality steer you away. Los Angeles is always changing with something new on the scene for everyone, such as restaurants and the new vintage Silver Lake Pool and Inn.
- Joshua Tree: Looking for an escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life? Joshua Tree is the perfect place for you. You can rock climb, hike, observe the stars, or even check out the boutique, Shop-on-the-Mesa, that has beautifully-crafted, local-made decor.
- Ojai: This may be a tiny town, but it is jam-packed with fun and eclectic festivals for all the art-lovers out there.
